tech69 those are some nice stairs, Pugsy. You should feel proud.

Anywho, after the rugrat chaos of yesterday I'm ok with just relaxing and recharging for a full steam ahead week of work. Football after a trip to Harbor Freight. I was taught to use a laser level to access height issues or should I say issues you don't see til you put the car together. Even on the rack there's not a lot of measuring points to adjust height on rear body issues past the reinforcement holes. This can be the difference between bumper to hatch fitting well, hatch to taillight fitting well, head light to hood fitting well, and many other things. I've only seen 2 guys use them and for $40 with the coupon they are well worth it! I don't want to guess. I hope the guys don't laugh at me for getting it.

I don't have to see those up close to know that they are mind blowing in perfection for a house. Houses are NOT done anywhere near to the perfection a car is, even a poorly built car. But I can see and would bet your house is different in that regard. That staircase looks like your frame on your car. LOL Beautiful!

boothboy Pugs, they look outstanding!! You've done a heck of a job. Not many guys would take on a project as large as you have. You've got a lot to be proud of.!!

I've tried to not be a weather watching worrier for the past couple of years, but is everyone else experiencing an unbelieveably mild January?
Out here Eastern Wa is getting more snow and cold then we have had since about 2008. Artic polar vortex is hitting us. And some major snow in the Sierra Mt's.

I do the same with my RAM. I have different set of wheels for plowing. Mine came with 20s and I use 17s which enabled me to get a taller sidewall and skinnier tires to match the originals. The tires can be studded, but studs are illegal over here, unfortunately.....

did a little busy work on my coupe, took off the calipers and rotors and repacked the bearings clean and painted the rotors them back together. I took some high temp ceramic paint and rolled the edges of the rotors, getting bored i guess. waiting for spring.

when I shimmed the shifter out to align the rods. it hit the floor and would not go in reverse. I used a die grinder and removed 1/4" and all is well

each are built to your specs. based on HP and your driving style. street/strip, full race etc.
the tail shaft is removed from your existing transmission. the GV adaptor is added then the OD unit is added to it.

I already had a $1500. polished stainless exhaust system on my car that included a X pipe. that had me a little concerned but it fit, but the OD unit was tight against it. I made a insulated heat shield and placed it between the X pipe and the OD unit.
other that no problem
I havn't had a chance to road test it as yet. waiting for the weather to get better
feel free to ask any ?s I'll try to answer them
Please post back your thoughts on this unit.
I have one for my 4L80E in the Chrysler. Hoping to get a bit of mileage from the rod.
I need to go for a long Stateside cruise to visit some forum friends.
Heck, I may even stop by to visit Henry.
