Baby steps?

Sure, why not. Trying to get back in to the groove, after not getting much of anything done on the weekend. So, I started small....went and hooked power up to the car to check that I hadn't cut anything I shouldn't have. Everything worked, so I wrapped up the wiring for the wiper motor and the passenger side lights. It was enough to get me started.

Mounted the plate to the motor, temporarily, hung it, and dropped the trans on top, like so:


Why? so I could line it up and...line it up!


Now I'm pondering cutting it out. I need room for the CV shaft in the bottom left, at the very least. Do I cut out the rest and make it pretty, or do I leave the excess for potential mounting points for whatever else comes along and trim it as necessary later?

Why can't I have a magic wand to do the work, or to return me to the last save point so I can do try out both ways?

Still need to modify a 3/8" key to be 1/4" on one side too.
