No. Things are a bit tighter than I was Hopeing. I have to change the pass floor a bit and I might modify the muffler as well.

The rear engine is cool but I am sure it comes with its own problems.

Spent a lot of time looking at the muffler and pass floor this weekend. Not sure if I am satisfied with it yet. I did modify the yoke on my 14 bolt to accept the same u joint and u bolt also installed rear drive shaft. Got the PS manifold in the fire wall.

Thanks Gman. It's been a lot fun and I am way ahead of were I figured id be. Been at a bit of a roadblock lately but I think I am past that. Placed another order today to hopefully get a bunch of these little odds and ends wrapped up before I start anything else.

Has anybody ever cut and modified a muffler? What kind of a pita am I getting into?

Neither. The muffler is on a rolling pitch. I need to shave an elipse off top and bottom. I want to keep the stock sound or at least as close as I can but bottom line is if I modify it the pass Sie should be a lot more comfortable.
