  3. Got the sunroof back in with a bit of trial and error. Fit is ok just a slight passenger side height difference. Also installed heater box and dash. Mocked in the gauge cluster to fill the hole. It will be removed before permanent installation. Added H4's w/city lights and a relay/fuse harness. Will install the driving light brackets when they arrive. Thanks, Pierre.
  4. Took this down to Buttonwillow so Ken Blasko could install and race today. My daughter went with and we really enjoyed looking over the cars and talking to everyone. The Salmon burgers weren't bad either. We got there at 11:30 or so and Ken quickly prepped it and got it installed prior to his heat at 3:00. Ken's starting position was next to last but he quickly made his way thru the pack and finished 4th. I guess the gearbox held up. http://vid1379.photobucket.com/albums/ah153/roundl76/VARA%20Buttonwillow/502A306B-6A2A-42F4-B037-E112EE2EDF1F_zpsz34fyhfy.mp4 Thanks Ken...
  5. Working out some details over the winter. Slow going... Stared at this for a couple of days while putting on trim. It hasn’t installed itself yet so...
  6. 2 days of fitting and refitting. Longhorn style to euro shortie
  7. 2.25” diameter. My thoughts initially were the tailpipe was a bit long yet I’m leaving it. If I don’t like the look down the road it can be trimmed.
  8. A few pics of exhaust being mocked up and installation finals after dropping her off, then home again.

  11. 1 Denogginizer did away with the expletives. Alcohol content 10%...
  12. When the body work was done the 5 speed was already part of the plan so the BFH work was included. All relevant threads were studied and Parts gathered along with a transmission lift. Nothing left to chance so I thought. I even took a 5 minute drive to the local BMW dealership to talk to the foreman and came away feeling confident. To be sure I hung out with my local independent shop manager and watched him prepare to install one in this Again I left with confidence. But reality bites... jgerock reminded me to lengthen the reverse switch wiring (wasn’t on the punch list) so I did that. I took my time with the pressure plate + clutch torquing (1 turn at a time on each bolt diagonally), Then I was ready. Box on lift, forward, up, input shaft too close to springs, back, bumping tunnel, down, snag plate lip, back and down, too far left, wth I’m moving in the wrong direction. Ok, up, forward, stuck on tunnel again, down, right, up, check input shaft placement, up, shove, crush reverse switch blade connector ... Aargh@$67hg#!!?!!! 4 days later new switch arrives, along with the 2 quarts of Redline MTL I forgot to put in the gearbox. Yesterday, went smoother though it still required a bit of adjusting positions and some physical effort. As Zaza Pachulia once said “nothing easy, NOTHING EASY “
  13. Lotsa IE bits including pistons, head bits, exhaust etc.
