    Been a little while since I posted, but here's a quick update:

    Cleaned and fixed up what little interior I am putting back in to the car, that brown had to go. I'll have pics tomorrow. I got the engine in with some help from the Montano brothers (we needed the hoist to put the transmission back in Adam's car).

    Ready for launch



    A moment before their union



    After standing on/hanging by the transmission we, shoe-horned it in. Some day, I will have a lift.





    Had a little trouble finding the right transmission mount, but it's all in. Just gotta hook it all back up.

    Got the 240 in town now, got a list of things to get it legal:

    - Exhaust : The previous owner cut out the cat, so I need a flange from the header and some pipe to the rest of the exhaust
    - Seatbelt : I threw a huge pile of them away, I may have them laying around here... I hate the auto belts anyway though, will prob just get manual ones.
    - Speedo : My digital one is out, but I have 3 so I will see about getting them to work.
    - Parking lights : There's a short somewhere - they stay on no matter what
    - Driver headlight : I'm missing the mounting hardware.
    - Need two windows put back in, they're not illegal to have out, just inconvenient in the even of rain.
    - Wipers : Missing the screws that hold the actual wiper mounts in place.

    Some optional stuff I need to work on next:

    - Solid motor mounts
    - Paint : Nothin supah nice, just some consistency would be nice. On the inside as well... Cool
    - LSD : Gotta drop that bad-boy Cusco in
    - Electric fans : stupid mechanical one takes up tons of room
    - Second "radiator" and a snail...
