Well this shouldn't been a surprise to me but it was. I ordered a driveshaft loop and went to bolt it in and noticed it's too close to my transmission. Well then i though i did shorten the drive shaft 4 inchs. So it's a "brace" right now

Same situation here. Going to make some plates and move it back eventually.

Well the front end is back together with new filler panels. Looking like a real GN now. Also the hood clears everything with zero trimming required.

Messing around with the steering column. The bolt that holds the lock cylinder was missing. Not no more.
Not sure if I like this new steering wheel or not

Don't get me wrong the steering wheel looks good but I'm worried about the back of it bring straight metal and the good old summers we get in vegas.
