i'm liking this fuel line concept.  i wonder if there is someone that can make factory like plastic hoses to specified length?

Thanks guys!

I'm not really sure what you mean...

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Update!

I got the brake and fuel lines painted and mounted.



I finally took it off the rotisserie, and got the suspension all bolted up!







I did also get the steering rack and front swaybar installed, I just didn't take any pictures...

Wheels and tires on, and the engine and tranny in. We're making some progress now. :) I will make my final ride height adjustments later.



I need to go back and paint/undercoat where the rotisserie was bolted up.

Not to be Debbie Downer here, but your diff mounts are on upside down.    The delrin mounts should go in with the flange on the top.

edit:   Aside from that, it looks amazing.  :)

Yep.    That's how they should go (in the picture you posted).

It is opposite of the "mid-install" picture in the "installed" picture below.

Ok, yes I know I put the diff mounts in upside down. I did it because when I did a test fit with them in the right way (like in the pic above) the mounts lowered the rear of the diff too much. I couldn't even get the front of the diff to touch the pinion snubber I had installed. I don't think I could even get the subframe on with them like that, and if I could I would probably have some wicked pinion angle going on. Flipping them upside down made more sense; I don't see any negative side effects to doing this, except maybe more noise because it's metal to metal (or I should say: polyurethane bed liner to metal) instead of metal to delrin.

I don't know, does anyone else have MMR differential mounts? Does anyone else have these issues?

BTW, thanks for the complements everyone!

I've run those in 2-3 cars and not had a problem, though perhaps tolerances aren't that tight on them?

I have MMR diff mounts and there is some additional noise but nothing terrible that I could tell. I went from an NA Open diff with worn out everything to a TII with the MMRs and it's fine.

Thanks guys, but I think I'm going to try running them this way. I don't really see any negative effects to doing this, unless anyone has more input on this.

MAN OH MAN she is looking great!

Thanks man, I really appreciate it!
