    What a whirlwind build..  All I worked on for awhile..

    There were a few things at the end IMO we missed, and I think lead to this car sitting and sitting and not getting used yet..

    It’s tough to nail em in such short time when your going outside the box at all…  and there was some learning curve in there for some of the builders.. 😎

    This will be sooo cool to see getting the daily treatment…. and I hope one Cole holds onto… since we got to build it side by side… 😎

    Luck is when preparation and opportunity meet.👊

    Ya, I love this car. WHEN the trans gets sorted it’ll get driven for miles and miles. and miles. I was in a SST whirlwind when I was down in Utah last time… next time I’ll pull this thing. It’s on my mind all the time. The build and the car. So good!

    2DA20765-C6B0-498A-8A1E-BE0E4F988F20Took about 5 degrees out of the spring plate adjustment. Went from 27-22 ish degrees. Should be about an inch lower now. Hopefully less camber in the rear

These tunnel trans are the hardest trans to build;) split case, 741 and 901 gearboxes are much easier! Decided to order a new syncro for 2nd since I was grinding it a bit on the way home. Rather safe than sorry. Don’t want to pull this out again anytime soon. Should be here from Weddle on Monday!
