I know you were planning a trip to finish your cage. Did you get the bulk of it done? Never saw a pic with it all back together inside.

I took Brandi out for a car wash and ride a little while ago... I'm working on hardening the gears by driving her under controlled situations...

I drove her about 20 miles, enough to get everything in the diff warmed up and then parked her... Heat and cool cycles will allow the gears to work harden....

Gotta do this before I can jump on her... and Corey has monitors out there to make sure I don't get on her... :(

I think he doesn't want me to break his new transmission...

I'm glad you're getting to drive. Did you get your cage how you wanted it? I can't remember seeing a picture all buttoned back up.

Nope, still trying to determine which seats I want... though I'm pretty sure it will be the top of the line Sparco's... Leather, hand made in Italy... look really comfortable... i may just get the black ones and take them to a leather upholstery shop and have some Grey accents added in/on...

My car has a grey interior, and solid black seats may not look quite right.. It may be something as simple as Brandi or 2SS/RS embroidered in Grey into the seat back/headrest area...

That seat looks like it will keep you planted! I have the same interior and solid black just wouldn't fit.

It'll be the five point harness in the platinum color...

Dang, you won't be moving around, period. Is that a spin quick disconnect in the center? People don't realize how important THAT is as well.
