Congratulations! I’m almost ready to build a car with points and a carb to get away from all the tech!

I'm glad you made the said "Taco's 10v"... Mine is just Stout enough for me haha.

This is a great build Ben. Been watching for some time now. Hope things keep moving along well with it.

I know :lol: No running from the Aliens this time.

UPDATE:

Not too much has been happening, installed a new shifter linkage bushing, tuned with AMDISTHEBEST, repaired a cracked trans mount, fixed an injector leak, installed a Wiechers strut Brace with some fresh OZ Rally wheels. Pretty happy with the results. Other than that, been trying hit some car shows and just enjoy the car. It's fun!

to I'll let the pics do the talking...

How long have you had those aluminum trans mounts? That's the second set I've seen crack...Not too encouraging for the set I have sitting on the shelf.

I have had them for several years, I know Hank is talking about revising the design. Fortunately, repair was performed under parts warranty and the weld was improved. :)

Wow. The car is looking fantastic Ben, that strut brace looks beautiful. I like those wheels a lot. This car makes me want to pick up my phone and text Ross.... :rofl:

:lol:

Thanks so much! I'm very happy with the product!

Slightly smaller update, I've also been working on getting some of the body electrics worked out. Courtesy lights are now functioning again, left front headlight bezzle re-installed/secured - lastly repaired the right front outer CV boot. Pretty excited about the event this year, hopefully a good turn out for the last year of Battleborn Quattro!
