    My triceps are jelly, and my transmission is back in the car. Bench pressing and wobbling is what it took.

    The ass pain is almost over. Just need to put shift cables and battery back in.

    I got everything installed and trest drove it. Immediately I noticed the difference in the clutch pedal. Before it would press all the way down with minimal effort. But now, it's super stiff and I can actually feel when it engages and disengages. No more slipping either. So far 2nd gear works better than ever.

    I wish I could get the 500 miles done this month, but with this quarantine stuff going on it could next month or the month after.

    To say the least, I am very satisfied with where the build is. Still more to come in the future, but for now there's nothing else I could even ask for. It's the best 90's car I've ever driven.

    Not a build update, but this may affect the next week or so of the build.

    Fingernail peeled half way off. Shut the door on it just a few minutes ago. I would show you guys a picture of my actual finger, but trust me you dont want to see that.

    What type of disc is that clutch? If it's just an organic disc, they don't really have a break in period. You can beat on them from the beginning. The only disc that really requires a break in, is a kevlar disc, you have to wear the fuzz off or you can glaze the disc

    I sourced a smooth valve cover that somebody decked the letters off of. Coated it in bedliner. I also ordered a custom tag, it's very suitable for the application :)

    Decided to throw a couple coats of gloss on top of the bedliner. It looks sweet.

    I've got a few high performance parts lying around. I waited to post them until I got everything opened up and laid out. I'll have more pics when the block and head come back from the machine shop. I pulled the engine from a '98 Neon R/T and decided to go all out on it. No more bolt-on Eclipse for me. I'm looking to make a few more horses and hopefully be more reliable than my current half build.

    I'm daily driving my Eclipse now that I'm not worried about whether the engine blows or not. With the new engine I'm building, I'm taking things very seriously. Corners will not be cut and nothing will be re-used unless it is rebuilt or machined. Hopefully the engine will be completely sealed, and make more power!
