i jumped up and down on it and didnt have any issues... and im gonna baby the car as it is anyways.... i understand your concern... but im not gonna be a douchebag and dump the clutch or anything.... and the TQ mount seems pretty damn solid... but i'll have him reinforce it when he comes over to finish a few other little things.

The welds were done with a Mig not a Tig. would look a hell of a lot cleaner with the Tig imo but then again i haven't really seen a lot of Mig welding. all the welds on our formula car at school were all done Tig style

that and he had to use flux core wire cause the douchebag with the opel had him welding so much he used up all his argon and never paid him so he could get more.

i went to sonic... not in my car unfortunately...

i was planning on waking up at 3 again this morning.. but my body wasnt up for that.. i just woke up... and im trying to let myself wake up normally before i go out and start working. i'll prolly start working around 8:15 or 8:30

my welder is coming over today to add more reinforcement to the drivers side mount and to make the custom shifter piece i need. (more explanation when it's done)

and i'm gonna be doing wiring... lots and lots of wiring....

target for today is to start the motor.

EDIT: reason the target isn't to drive the car is because i still need the right clutch fluid line... the focus one doesnt like the contour trans... so im gonna have to take it back and see what the contour one looks like.. i MIGHT have to somehow adapt the two ends i need together.

i'll add to this as a semi update since he can't post while doing all the wiring he should be doing at the current moment

What we need to get the car started: Finish the wiring, drain old gas (regular), put new gas in (priemium), pray that the wires are right and it starts

What we need to get it driveable: Driveshafts need to be put into the trans boots, new coolant resivour, the bracket that holds the passengerside half shaft extension thingy in place to the block. the correct clutch line so the clutch will work properly. The bracket to attach the shifter cable to the trans.

In theroy all the parts could be optained from 1 trip to the junkyard. however Getting the motor running is goal #1 right now.. once that works we can scramble for the rest of the parts
