post office didnt show up with my box till 7:45 last night, but finally got my shifter stuff in, sanded down the cable bracket and shift tab. they where from illinois so they've seen salt and got all weird and pitted. painted em with some rustolium rattle can gloss black and got them put into place. after work today, im going to grab a hole saw and cut a couple fresh holes through the floorboards and run the cable and tranny wires though. got the tranny plug in, but am still un decided as to whether im going to try and wire it to a tcu, or just shift 1-2 with a switch and lock up the tc with another. on a funnier note, went to the jy this weekend and grabbed a few things i needed to get it all buttoned up... and the only thing that i really NEEDED, was a new bolt for the steering box.
i started a pile with the bolt on the bottom, and grabbed a few other random things, left the damned bolt and took my other stuff. so MGDWJ grabbed one since he was at another yard yesterday, and is bringing it to me.
