Default I've got access to a machine shop for the next 5 weeks or so...

It's got bridgeport mills, a bunch of lathes, a CNC mill, drill presses, all the usual shop ****. All I have to pay for is the metal stock I need/destroy.

Anybody got any prototypes or ideas for me to dick around with?

^ VERY yes. Make 6 or 7 (10.) and also some plates to mount the tranny mounting point to the tunnel.

I guarantee there would be some buyers.

If anybody's got cad files, I'll get em machined.

Otherwise, that ain't gonna work. I don't have the time or money for R&D work right now. Body braces I'll probably look into. I could actually mill down some solid core tubing for some super stiff bracing, but I dunno if it'd end up being too brittle.

I believe Loki once said that he had the designs for a plate in Bigturbo's FD transmission thread. But I WILL find these files

A hub that bolts to the harmonic balancer and allows a common, cheap, readily available trigger wheel to bolt up to it. Also a nifty little bracket milled down to bolt the the engine and allow a cheap, common VR-sensor to bolt up to.
