Greg, thanks for the concern. For the past year or so I have put the car aside. It's been tuff with the death of my brother. I am trying to get back into the build but seems like everytime I think of the car I think of my brother and it tends to drag me down. So at the moment I am trying to get back into it and getting back on Lateral-g seems to help.

At the moment the Bird has its floor, trunk, and both quarters removed. Have a new floor, trunk, and NOS quarters ready to be installed. I have the DSE rear end setup with the mini tubs, subframe connectors, etc. still in their boxes.

With the warmer weather here I know it's time to get going.

What are you into now?

I know this post is 5 years old but how many of you (if any) would change their vote to the new TKX 5 speed?

If my HP met the trans specs I'd go with a TKX just for the fitment benefits.

It would save some $$ if you didn't have to raise the trans tunnel.
