almost done with trans mount (order the ds from pst) when i get the ds i will weld the brace for the ds loop and send it out to powder coat it



braces with nuts weld on that way you dont need to pull carpet for removal and install (have both set ups now t56 magnum  and 4l80e brace mounts)





also order hotwater lab headlights

Those headers look badass! Are you still going to be able to run plug wires from the rocker covers or are you going to run wires from underneath

Second to last picture - looks like you have a cracked weld in the upper right, whatever is welded behind the coolant pressure sensor.  Make sure you leak test the radiator before you start it up, too.  Usually just filling with water is good enough - I use a red marker around the welds to watch for bleeds.  It's REALLY easy on these stamped end tanks to get pinhole leaks at the slightest bit of cold lap or craters.
