Keep up with the project!

Did you start the swap already, or still collecting various parts? When my car is done, hopefully soon, I could prolly swing by and help at some point

ETA is ASAP.

i would LOVE to have it done by the end of the month but that most likely won't happen.

i'll be happy with having the motor in by the end of the month, the wiring should take me maybe a week or so.

im good with the electrical, i just gotta sit my but down and figure out what wires need to go where, and then start cutting off parts of the harness i dont need.

the lease on my apt. starts mid august so thats the goal im shooting for to leave.

so if i can get it running right around the beginning of august, i'll give it some shake down runs round here and then tackle the 2,400 mile trek out to Cali.
