    Installed the air/heat unit and placing wire connectors. Front half of carpet is from GTO as it form fits onto floor so then I'll integrate after
    market carpet with heat barrier to meet.

    T56 had a broke to pieces 5th/6th synchro hub ring.

    Had purchased the GTO thru COPART and car had been run off road crashing into a tree, jammed the tail house into floor
    puncturing a hole about the size of a quarter where the 5th/6th fork near that spot breaking the 5th/6th synchro hub.
    The condition of rest of trans is excellent, must have been rebuilt because the friction and brass and dog teeth on synchros
    are in great condition. 135k on GTO, has a slight used clutch. Ordered small parts and hub assembly from Tick.

    First pic is crossmember modified from the GTO 4 bolt cradle and second is the right
    crossmember carefully cut for the A/C compressor. Had to weld nuts onto member of rear lower control arms
    because the Flame river rack plate blocks access. You can see I added a plate back in of rear crossmember to allow
    all four compressor bolts. That gap at arm pit of subframe and that added plate has to be from underneath for bracket and bolt.
    Funky shape member but have 2 1/2' drop of motor and trans and so far no shims needed.

    See the modified rack bracket where the compressor cuts into, still is plenty strong-I hope!

    Going with an aftermarket pulley set for alternator and pump. Alternator would cut into control arm too much.

    Brake and fuel lines taken from GTO

    Crossmember made from the GTO support reusing the bolts through the subframe into the GTO's capture nuts. Have 2 1/2 degrees drop with trans all set up. Nice spacing between the rack , member and pan and member is about inch lower than all else which is ideal as shall bolt in the GTO skid plate. The steering shaft fishes through the headers, having to dimple a good amount of #1 pipe only.
    2nd photo see the right side compressor mod in main crossmember.

    Hey, looks great! Keep up the awesome work. I can't wait to see more progress. If you get a chance, could you take a picture of the car from further away? I'd be cool to get a 'whole car' perspective.

    Got the tremec 6 speed back together, first time in this type trans with just one messup and luckily was up top in the extension countershaft where the 5th 6th gears are. Before installing that extension assembly pressing the synchronizer assembly in press the slider had popped off one side(don't ask how but no problem getting it together again). Well, after installing everything and just placing the tail house on with trans still vertical, test shifting all gears good except 5th and 6th...what? Since all gears except that one selector position wasn't moving the 5th/6th fork up top or at least acting like it wasn't down in the main case, decided to first pull out the extension shaft and sure enough the 3 keys didn't line up with the blank spaces in both blocker rings but did have the
    hub keys lined up in with the sleeve indents.

    Mocking up the overhead flat 'roll bar'.

    Just clamping in the GTO roof reinforcement and side 'B' pillars cut out of the GTO and so happens the L/R pillar's works better switched sides on the 68 of angular proportions. The lower quarter vertical sheet metal I cut out of GTO which houses the seat belt retractor is positioned to integrate to upper 'B' pillar and all this I have to allow 1/8" to 3/16" for panel making later. All four windows will be power and I mentioned in a previous post the door scissors are about identical to first gen camaros and possibly many others which allows you to keep same tracks and window support of course, just have to position the electric motor assembly into door(that was suprising). I cut out the motor mount panel of GTO doors to use into 68. So much has played out in my favor-have been lucky on a lot of this.

    Fuel and brake and emission line. Shield is GTO.

    Reusing clamps and as much as I can off of GTO. Using 6mm alloy inserts for those clamps into floor and further back. Looked into aftermarket tanks with TANKS INC but right off I'm just gonna use the GTO tank to start car and all as it is a returnless/regulated in tank, quick and easy to feed into trunk hole.

    Figuring in DZUS fasteners

    About 8-10 hours I figure just to figure out how to attach and detach the overhead belt support.
