    Engine mounts and gearbox mount done and installed, now for shifter and tailshaft tomorrow, suuuper stoked on the amount of progress so far
    I am really surprised at how well everything fits and lines up, as you can see, the engine mounts are nearly directly across from the original position and this made for easy fabrication of the final mounts as well as the gbox mount, the new position is perfectly in line with the height of the stock mount so all that was needed was a quick lop off of the end and some neat fabbing of some plate etc..

    So I was thinking for the exhaust side of things, I am going to mod the stock headers to make them fit and then going into twin 2.25" steel system that runs down either side, meets under the car near the middle for the crossover and splits back outwards into a small resonator on each side, then both run to the rear into a single muffler with twin 2.25" inlets to twin 2.5" inlets for the tips at the rear, what are your thoughts?

    I keep forgetting to take pics but this is the passenger floor once the rust was all cut out/converted, this has since been plated back up and painted, the driver side is also cut out but I will finish plating that in the morning, all of the holes in the floor have been welded up and ground flush, also fixed all of the seat mounts, they were a little rough and needed re-doing so all strong now

    Finished the rust repairs today, also removed all of the junk from the back wall of the cab that used to house the jack handle and Jack etc. so all smooth now then I gernied out the entire floor and it came up heaps nicer, needs one more vacuum and I'll give the inside a quick spray of black, I also begun the task of implanting the lexus instrument cluster into my dash, some small cuts here and there and then she sits right at home I'll throw some pics up in the morning, all seems to be coming along nicely
