Headlights, headlight eyebrow, tail lights work light and brake valve installed. Think that's it for the brakes. Apart from brake fluid.

It breaths. Been wanting to turn over the engine for a while. That happened today.

Next up finish the ignition and exhaust system. Brakes and fuel are ready.

Hiccups are best inside the shop.
Started up the engine only to find the front cover had a crack in it by the oil lines. One of those it never had that problem before moments. Swapping to another one taken off my old engine......

Pretty confident it is. I have a auto in my 94 and there are no clearance issues, and the floor mats etc do not differ afaik.

Removed seat box to complete conversion from lt77 to r380 style. Which of course means undoing a couple of dozen bolts, removing seat, battery etc etc etc. going to cut out lt77 hole, replace with flat metal which can then be scribed and trimmed to correct shape before putting tranny tunnel back in.

Fabbed a sweet r380 tranny tunnel to seat box adapter. The seat box was from an early 90/110.
