OK, shift linkage is done. Go ahead, haul on that sucker. It feels solid and positive.
And now that the linkage is so pretty, let’s cover it up with a tunnel. First thing is to mock up a pattern…
Then cut and weld and grind… The top of the tunnel is just below the top of the seat, pretty awful for the center passenger. The tunnel will be padded from above so it’s nice and round when it gets carpeted. The front side of the tunnel gets polished stainless panels same as the firewall, and then it gets all covered up with big engine, a turbo, and plumbing.
Removing the nasty old floor, rebuilding the body mounts and supports.
Installing new floors.
And installing the tunnel.
And while we’re on the subject of spending weeks and weeks on stuff that all gets covered up, here’s the new AC evaporator box we built.
And some pieces are getting media blasted right now!
