Hey the mock up is just the start gonna be pretty neat seeing it all together
Thoughts about paint for the engine bay ?
It’s going to be blackish/gray undercoating.



Rear rollstop done. I think I’m “done” with mounting engine. Might move to suspension and axles next.

Mounted


And started deleting unused wiring last night. Attacking a big section today using info/vid from Hux Racing for kswap mr2’s. Then going to attack airbag and abs wiring. Deletions will make more room for additions.

16lb of trash wiring and computers. And started installing fueltech harness. It’s a tight fit!

Starting to look like a car! Busy weekend. (Engine is still just an empty mock up).

Have ~80% of the wiring done. The three buttons on shifter are wired to ecu for 2-step, 3-step/RAL, and nitrous/scramble. Have speed sensor on trans wired and the starter also. Line lock will be controlled by ecu also this time and have most of that wired as well.

ABS pump removed but still need to plumb the wilwood prop valve and line lock. May need some adapter fittings that I don’t have. Will see.

I surely wish I have the speed to get things done as quickly as you do. Amazing Sir, truly Amazing.

Well I did take vacation most of last week, so that helped. Unfortunately, I may have fractured my wrist with the sawzall kicking back so may have to take some time off. Traveling this week anyway. Have to go back next week and get xrays. Yay. lol

Milwaukee sawzall is a bad bitch!! blade smacked straight on to something behind what i was cutting and that full force pushed my arm backwards, back of arm only moved a small amount before it hit something on car for support, so the rest of the force ended up in my wrist apparently. that happened tuesday. worked on car wednesday all day. also thursday after thanksgiving stuff but with a wrist brace. continued to do wiring all weekend. but pain worsened daily. excruciating at night. So, yeah, I kept working on car (ignoring my wife lol)

Working with power tools is always risky. I was cutting fiberglass with a cut off wheel. The fiber blade exploded. A piece of the blade sliced the top part of my wrist open. I taped it up tightly and went to the ER. They did a X-Ray of my wrist. I had previously shattered my wrist. It was put back together with 5 pins, 4 rods and an external fixator. The Doctor said my wrist looked so bad in the X-Ray he couldn’t tell what was going on. He said he saw a triangular white looking thing in between my 2 bones that connect to the wrist. I told the Doctor I didn't think they should be there. Off to surgery I go. The triangular thing was a piece of the blade that was larger than my thumb nail. After removal and 10 stitches I was good to go. I’ve given that poor wrist hell. Murphy’s Law will prevail.

I hope your wrist heels up quickly. You could have cracked a bone. Maybe even have a floating chip.
If it doesn’t feel better soon you may need to have a X-Ray completed.

I lied….

One “custom” axle done!!! Rav4 axle bar and outer CV with a Mitsu inner cv. Barely short enough overall

Hopefully other side works out as easily.

Other “custom” axle done. Have to fit it yet.



And confirmed the 10ft cable worked. The brackets are from Morrison fabrication so you can use an aftermarket shifter with Mitsu trans. Had to do some adjusting of cable and slightly bend bracket but seems to work well.
