    It just gets tougher for project cars from here. Time management is crucial!

    Will, I totally forgot about Mark, who was building the rally cb. I think he gained a couple inches on the clearance to with using the crv parts. Here is is MR: http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/showthre...highlight=Cr-v
    The CRV has the exact same wheel travel as the CB! All he did by swapping CRV springs and dampers was left the car unbalanced in ride frequency and improperly damped, but a higher ride height. I'd still wanna keep it low.

    Also a few of us have been wondering about you. Glad to hear that you are ok and life just got overly busy.

    One last thing just to check, you just met her 24 days ago, and she's already your fiance? If that is so, that is great and I hope the best for both of you. Congratulations!!! Just seems a little quick, maybe a typo.
    June 4th of last year lmao. My bad.

    I see more of the Jeep than your CB. btw did you have the motorcycle as well or did you wind up selling it?

    Congrats man! I hear you on the life getting busy part. But glad to know youre working on it again!
    No worries man! Still have the bike.

    Got sick of dealing with the shifter because they asked me to reinstall it again to take more pictures.
    On 6/4/18 I met someone who is now my fiance. So she's kept me pretty busy lol.
    Started doing some work to my Jeep that got pretty involved.
    Picked up a Neon that needed a lot of work.
    So I said the Honda can wait. Turns out I'm getting busier and busier.
    On my current to do list:
    Finish moving into our new house (lots of unpacking)
    Finish assembling the new rear axle for my Jeep.
    Install new front and rear axles in the Jeep
    Replace the Neon starter
    Clean all my guns that I just shot
    Install a security system in the new place
    Build a new rack for my snake terrariums so I can stack the tanks.
    Then modify the K-Tuned shifter myself to work.
    Fasten all the new electronics to the Honda
    Get it tuned
    And hopefully get it on the track this fall.

    Not sure if those last three items are gonna happen though. I picked up new responsibilities at work and now trip season starts in the middle of July instead of late October. Great. Yucca AZ in August is gonna be miserable.

    P.S. Falling in love takes up a lot of time and changes priorities you never thought would change.

    That sucks. Sure, they'll take your money but when it's time to help the customer that all goes out the window.

    If they can't fix the cables I'm going to try.

    That sucks man, I can't even imagine spending $1200 on a shifter, then not be happy with it.

    Are you gonna return all of it then?

    That's a little crappy on their part. If it were me, I would ask for pictures and then for you to send them in if those weren't helpful. Then, with them in my possession I could make a better call as to their condition. I wouldn't just claim that someone having an issue installing my part could only have damaged them if they are not working.
