    Thanks man! AMD has been pretty good. The door skin was a little too short, but not too big of a deal.

    I have, though it's been a while, haven't really found a style by them that I had to have. I am thinking about a few different wheel choices. It'll be a while before I have to pick one, and of course settle on one, but I'll check Coys out again.

    Not a HUGE update, but a big step. Finally tore into the donor car (yes, I was riddled with guilt but the car currently has a salvage title and we needed a donor... we just got lucky and scored a nicer one than we thought we could find) and pulled the motor and transmission. We're going to attempt to sell the car once we are done getting the components we need, though we'll be leaving the car over all in tact minus you know, the drive train.

    And the pictures from today:


    Mostly my father and buddy did a lot of the heavy work, but between the 3 of us we got it out in less than a few hours and the cradle back in again.



    And of course, the bird:
