    The windshield was broken so I had a little fun using a hammer with that one. The quarter windows and hatch I removed using a putty knife and guitar string, mind you it was not easy in any aspect.
    I don't plan on putting glass back on the quarters, I have something different planned for those.

    Thanks, Jayson

    Thanks Josh.

    Small update, sent a "built" tranny I bought off to TMZ performance for a full teardown to verify what had been done, and to be built to my specifications. Had a few parts come in as well to cushion my stockpile of parts!

    Thanks, Jayson

    Made good progress on the engine bay over the weekend. Grinded down the excess weld on the unused holes I patched up, sanded and primered to get the engine bay about 90% complete.

    Received my tubular rear subframe from Paul a couple weeks ago and forgot to take pictures so here is to playing a little catch up!

    Thnaks, Jayson

    With everything I have planned for my car I decided it would be beneficial send my harnesses to someone to have them stripped, tucked and redone so I could concentrate on the rest of my build. Needless to say I was wrong. After about six months of this person having my harnesses and sending them hundreds of dollars, I received my fuse box harness that was tucked as requested but not wrapped as discussed, simply retaped like the factory harness.

    Next is the engine harness which was slightly better off as the part that is in the engine bay was wrapped in the quality wrap and tucked along with the connectors eliminated that had been talked about. The plugs for the ECU were supposed to have the wires not being used depinned but were instead just cut off flush with the connector.

    Next is the interior harness which was supposed to be stripped down, connectors eliminated that wont be used, tucked and re wrapped and it was literally not even touched. Communication has been extremely terrible since the day he received the harnesses so I was actually thankful just to receive my "harnesses" back. Now while some might not think these issues are very big deal, they are to me considering I paid to have this stuff specifically done and waited a very long time for it.
    Long story short, I will be taking care of the neglected parts of the harnesses myself. Here are a few pictures of the harnesses.

    Thanks, Jayon
