    Hey bud,
    Just dropping in to see if you got that 5 speed in the car yet.

    A gloss grey over that primer would look pretty awesome.

      Thanks man, I should be done in a month or so, I saved up enough money recently (unemployed) that it should be able to be done.

        Hey everyone, I was down in Arkansas long sotory but I ended up moving back up here to Wisconsin. I got the 5 speed swap done while i was down in Arkansas and I was so depressed while i was down there I barely took pics of anything I was doing there including what I was doing to my car.

        Like I said I got the swap done while I was there and forgive me for not taking pics of the process but shes done. Here are the only pics I have of the whole process.




        ^ HAHAHA Typo from China




        A random dildo shifter they ordered me lol.

        So I drove around Arkansas after I got the swap done and I trailered the car back up here to Wisconsin and cruised around some more. Then I had some problems....

          I first popped my oil pan and down pipe on a city water main cover that rusted off that pipe and blew off cause the street flooded earlier that day.

          ^The Cause of everything. I wasn't even that low. I had as much ground clearance as I could have at the time probably a good 4" of oil pan clearance so around what Corvette would have I'm guessing?

          ^Looks shorter than it is.

          So that's the oil pan incident. Next is a heart breaker for me...

            I was driving down our main Ave in our local big city and was in a turning lane to get off the Ave sitting at a RED light and I was rear ended. Luckily I had my foot on the brake pedal like you should at a stop, cause there was a car in front of me.

            The lady that read ended me was starting to go into diabetic shock so I guess in a way I may have saved hers and/or someone else' lives.

            And the damage. Not horrible but bad enough to me cause it my first and only baby.

              Now most reacently my clutch pedal took a crap so I had to buy one off a member (Damon) and he'll be sending it to me this week and I'll probably have it by the end of this week. So since my car's been down of course some parts are going to arrive.

              They are Swift springs 11K (616lbs) 7". I put the stance springs I had in the front in the rear which are 8K (448lbs) 6". So I put these in and never had a chance to feel them cause my clutch pedal needed pulled. ugh.

              So that is my big update hope everyone likes it!

                I got rear ended in Ruby after redoing the quarters not quite at bad as you, but that may be fixable. I used my van jack to push the trunk structure back out into position.


                Looks like a new trunk lid would be in order as well.

                  I was super pissed and bashed the hell out of the inside of the trunk where you used the jack with a 4lbs sludge hammed and it ended up pushing the trunk almost back into place. Hey ya live ya learn especially at my age 24 so I was a little angry and took it out on the damage. I still love the ol' primered lady as much as always but I was just pissed about the damage.

                    As of yesterday, this young man has passed away. He was an incredible guy that was very passionate for the CB community. RIP Brian, you'll be missed my friend. ♥

                          This is sad to hear. He was such a help to me in my early modding days on here. I am saddened to hear of his passing, and he will be missed.
