Get it done or mine will be done first. Of coarse mines been going on for about 5 years. No sense in hurrying.

Just getting the last parts to the puzzle now! Had to get a new flexplate because mine was bent and had a little crack in it. It should be arriving today!

Well still haven't got the rest of my engine parts, so i decided to do some body work. Trimmed the front fenders. Cut the rear part back so the tire wouldn't hit anymore and then cut the front part of the fender straight across. The passenger side turned out good them i ran out of batteries for my rayobi cordless sawzaw, so i had to get my dads craftsman to do the drivers side. It didn't turn out so hot, i cuts a lot faster than the rayobi one!! But it turned out ok. Also got the shift light mounted.

Filled in the gap in between the fender and inner fender. Doesn't look perfect but it'll work for a mud toy!

Nice build but a questions

I hope that is not your fresh built trans bolted to the np205?

why are you running that intake and then a spacer as well? you are really taking away from your torque, which is what you need in mud.

I was thinking the same thing....maybe his rebuilder tests transmissions through a mud hole after rebuilding....or maybe it's rebuild in a can???

Yep thats my rebuilt TH350 bolted to the NP205....that pic was before i cleaned it off.

Don't know if i'm gonna run the spacer or not, it was on my old small block when i had it. Depends on if i have to get a 50cc Accelerator Pump or not, you need a 1/4 spacer to comp for it.

Got some work done yesterday started patching the firewall where the old heater was. Pulled it out about 2 years ago and just out duck tape over it as a quick fix. So i decided to put a piece of metal over it. I'm gonna put my ignition box on it when i get it. It's gonna be mounted in the cab so it wont get wet. Still gotta finish drilling out all the holes for it but it a start

Well got some work done yesterday. Got the rest of the hole drilled for the patch panel and also got the steering box off the frame so i can swap the new one in. Had to pull the coupler for the steering wheel off the old box and put it on the new one. Hopefully this one doesn't leak like the old one. Doesn't look like the frame is cracked anywhere so that's a great thing. Gonna try and beef it up a little bit there as well.
