Paint is done other than the cage it still has some fab work to be done. We are waitng on some parts to finish it. It is a little farther together than the pictures show but not by much.

Thank God, I don't think that I can stand around in the paint booth sucking in fumes. See you in a few hours for more assembly.

I find that huffing paint helps me think clearer and realize how to adjust the gun properly

Feels pretty good, with the 16v 1.6, 5 spd, and 11:1 in the cases the car would leave good but not really go any where. Now with the 2.0, 3spd auto and 4.71 in the cases it leaves good and keeps going.

Got out and did some testing yesturday. It's rough at speed and will definatly need a tire hanging off the back to help settle the rear down but overall the new power and auto trans is going to be great! Definately want to thank the Jimmy's 4x4 crew for all of thier help with the transmission. GREAT people to deal with!
Thanks guys! Jake

what upgrades did you do to the transmission, i'm running the same drivetrain in the rig i'm building except for a 1.6 instead of 2.0. the tranny will start out stock and i figure by the end of the year i'll figure out exactly what i need to upgrade.

We are working towards getting second gear to stay in second when we put it there. Still don't have it all worked out yet but Jim thinks he has a handle on it. Not sure what else he did to the trans while he had it out but I know he has spent quite a bit if time dialing it in for us. Give him a call when you get close. Great guy to work with and I am sure he can hook you up with everything that was done to ours for not much more than a standard rebuild.

No new pictures, sorry.

The Tracker needs a horn, oil change, GPS mount, and stickers then onto the trailer. The truck and trailer are done and ready. We should be finished with the rig by Tuesday night. We are taking a break from working on things today. We will gets some pics of the finished car before we leave.
