Project Roadster: Box In

Shockingly, that went pretty well too.  A couple of hours (and a bit of a fight to lift it in solo) and everything came together nicely.

Wait, what?

Welded up the heat shield on the exhaust (one side done here)

As everything was going so well I decided to start on the A/C delete (I did consider fixing it, but that could end up costing mega bucks and take hours chasing leaks! Plus race cars don’t have A/C).  That’s pretty much where the fun stopped.  It took me 2 hours to get the bumper off.  Then it went dark.  That’ll be tomorrow’s project then.  That, and replacing all the fixings I had to cut off or sheared on the bumper!

    Typical that! Ive done the same thing with my roadster. None of the fixings like to come off what so ever!! I decided to do a/c delete but gave up about 3/4 of the way lol.

    Would a 6 speed have fit?

    I did consider going down the 6 speed route, but I would have had to change the diff. For the sort of driving I do it wasn’t really worth it, plus 5 speed boxes are 10% of the cost of a 6 speed!
