Ha. Busy yes but not so you'd notice. I just got the exhaust finished on the weekend bar the paint. Thought I had it finished a few weeks ago but after being sick and not being able to look at it for a couple of weeks when I did look at it again with fresh eyes I was not impressed. Have spent the last couple of weekends straightening it all out. It's a bit hard keeping things straight when the work is about 2 inches from your nose the whole time. Looks good now though. I'll take a pic or 2 when I pull it out for painting.

Working on the transmission shifter now converting the linkage on the trans to cable.

Hey rogue, want to see plenty of pics when you do the transmission / shifter. Because i am doing a custom set-up with my shifter, i was told i should go with a cable, but some tell me that cable can break over time, other say no, cable done the right way will last as long as linkage set-up. What do you say, can you post pics so i can see how it converts from linkage to cable. Thanks mate.

I'll sort you out George. The shifter is a bit of a custom jobbie using the shifter out of a Honda Astor as I didn't like the B&M or Hurst shifters which are really designed for hot rods where ascetics take a back seat.

The only reason a cable wouldn't last is if it has too many turns and twists in it which creates more friction and makes it harder to shift which in turn puts more stress on the shifting components. The more straight the cable the happier everything is.
