    Got my new short throw shifter in. It looks awesome. I am also taking the engine and transmission combo and the track nose to the fab shop this weekend. Things will really start to come together then.

    Well I went and delivered my payment car this weekend. I took some updated pics while I was there. I also delivered my engine/transmission setup and the front nose cone to the shop for setup. Things will start coming together pretty quickly now. Hopefully updated pics will come a lot more often.

    That back end looks pretty good narrowed down like that.


    Is that shifter you got the one from Cube speed?
