      haha I know the Routan is made by Dodge, but honestly it still felt like a dub when driving it. The suspension and interior is made by VW

      haha hey you moved the jack around don't sell yourself short!

      PROGRESS PICTURES:

      THE CHAOS








      400LBS OF GARBAGE


      CRANK GRINDED. FLYWHEEL BOLTED ON


      PATIENTLY WAITING FOR MONDAY.


      THE REASON I HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL MONDAY.


      So all in all it wasn't that bad. My friend almost last his thumb do to the transmission slipping off the jack but other then that everything went smooth. Grinding the crank was a bit sketchy, 4mm had to be taken off! While under the car Kevin said, "Uh Oh" He pointed out the motor mounts were missing something….yeah those little pressed in bolts were bent and fell out of the mounts at some point…..don't know when.
