I bought a new shifter for my buick last weekend, and a bellhousing and zbar stuff... clutch pedal... Since it hasnt moved much since last weekend, i figured i would add mine.

Still on the fence regarding shifter location... adapting the camaro mo7nt pad to gforce crossmember shouldnt be too difficult, maybe about as involveed as swapping to a s10 tailhousing, the floor hole one way or the other is the same amount of work...

Have a good week folks!

Sympathies to the flooded along pacific northwest/ bc south coast.

R.

P.s., i picked up the conversion kit from some good ole boys in an area called "west island". ( la Belle Province)

They have their own sticked gbodies, and really know the mechanics of manual swapping.

I recently picked up the G-Body Window Anti Rattle book from Kirban and verified I need weather stripping and new hardware inside the doors.

Found the kit and weather stripping on OPGI for the best price, a discount code and free shipping

If I can get get my drivers side window to not rattle and seal up; I will only have the Air Con to fix and have no little annoyances.

New master cylinder,,,,apparently, there are no cores to reman, so "new" it is

I miss the days when you could buy stuff like Delco parts at a parts store, these chains are all about house brand. I don't need a "lifetime warranty", I need an OE quality part.

Merry Christmas to me! I only bought these because they were discounted. After seeing the quality and the coating used I'm even happier. They use some thick coating on these things and they are way heavier than I expected. Anxious to replace my stock, POR-15 coated, energy suspension poly bushing rear arms and test these out.

Nice stuff! I'm sure you will give them the proper test they deserve.
I'm looking at the UMI adjustable upper kit to help hold my rear end in place. Factory stamped steel just won't do. I am slowing chipping away at the things left to do before an engine drop. I can't see adding HP just to break a bunch of stuff.

So Tick performance released these today....

The single rail lower I ordered was backordered until febuary so these are on the way and the lower was cancelled.

HUGE WIN!!!

Tick and Motion are doing some pretty innovative things.

Obviously this solution negates running two dedicated fuel types. But, if you are looking to move massive amounts of fuel it works.
