I havent updated this in some time but I have been chipping away.
-added an attional brace to my jackshaft bracket
-installed passenger axle, FINALLY
-trunk lid mounts are complete. I still need to mount the spring terminal connections for the plate lights, but Ill get to that eventually
-finally fabbed up a shock hood prop. The top mount is quick release so I can unhook it in the garage (I like to tie the hood straight up and down for easy access). All parts for it were sourced from McMaster
-rear hubs and brakes are completely assembled along with all the front suspension (just needs alignment)
-clutch issue solved by adding a pedal stop
Also finally recieved my new oil cooler and Mocal thermostatic sandwich plate (took like 6 weeks to get)
And a few pics:
And the new oil cooler and tstat/sandwich adapter. My old seutp was rediculously complicated. Remote mount filter, separate Tstat and a crappy B&M cooler. By going to this setup I lose 10 connection points and like 450 degrees in fittings. Basicaly itll just be two hoses, win.
Tonight I backed it out of the garage, and right back in, no issues. The clutch was fine and it ran well. I just didnt have time to take it for a spin.
