well it's in, bolted to the mount and the trans is safety wired up since I don't have the cross member
been a real bitch working this weekend as I've had a migraine for about 5 days now

to do:

install trans X member and torque arm
wiring harness
fuel system
cooling system
reinstall brake system
install cluch MC

guess that's about it.

I'm kind of amazed I didn't drop the car, the engine, or both on my fat ***.

That's gotta be the ***** when your all ready to go and the only thing stopping you from finishing is waiting on parts to come in.

Philip are you gonna put a nice lopey cam in that V8?
