      took another primed up the rims im going to put on the cabby this week.


      (a side note)

      I need a passenger size cv axel.. anyone have one for sale?

      the threads on the stub are completely gone. a front right stub axel would work too.. but it seems that they are sold as part of the whole cv axel shaft assembly

      someone within a day via UPS ground would be sweet.. or local to NH would be even better I want to drive car this week

      Put the new CV passenger side axel in today. did the other tie rod and removed the sway bar(which was already popped out on the passenger side.. and the mounts on the pass side were busted).

      we also did most of the shift rebuilt kit.. its a little off now.. i need to jack the car up to adjust it. i need to push down slightly to get into 1st 2nd now. I was reading i need to jack it up and loosen the clamp on the spline rod and adjust it a tiny bit so i can get the gears back in the right place..

      tomorrow she'll get new rubber

      maybe if i cant get the guys to fix the linkage while they have the car on the lift doing the tires

      pushed her into a parking lot after the plastic clutch cable hook thing broke (hooks the cable to the pedal).. on the way home from putting new tires and rims on it....



      on the upside.. looks much beter without the white steelies

      offset is better too

      New Clutch Cable! and finally got to drive her home!

      Hopefully tomorrow night she'll get the **** linkage adjusted and then the final tierod end put on. I really need to invest in a jack (and some jack stands)

      last night i dropped the speedo gear into the tranny.... so today i guess i let my tranny chew it up




      also picked up some marine vinyl in white to start working on the door cards..

      my interior is going to be amazing. Doing all white doors with black stitching and then when its al done we are going get some good paint and blood splatter the whole interior of the car.. going to look like a sick murder scene zombie attack.

      also plan to have a zombie painted on the underside of my hood too

      Started my cab! I'm in the process of trying to get my own insurance for all my cars ATM. Once I get some money together for that I'm hopefully going to start driving it!
