The parts have arrived!

Thursday, December 20th, 2007

Wow.  Both the big crate (with the battery boxes and stuff) as well as the box with suspension stuff have arrived.  Naturally, they arrived while I was gone, but my long-suffering wife was kind enough to deal with it (and now I have to return the favor somehow, but that should be fun).  At long last (and only 3 months late) the stuff is here.  Minus the manual.

The Boxes

The big crate weighed in at 300 pounds.  Most of that weight is from the various components.

The Parts (1 of 2)

Lots of cables, connectors, and such.

Battery boxes!

So now, I just need to get the car cleaned up (rust repair and grease/gunk removal) so I can start hacking away.  Oh the fun….

Wow, the transmission has finally been rebuilt and reinstalled.

Reinstalled Transmission

So nice and clean – that won’t last long, though. 🙂

Many thanks to Brad Roberts and Sean Molloy for their expertise in this process. Both of them are available for hire and do very nice work, feel free to contact me for their number.
