best part of all, no more headaches! well with the shifters, i dialed it all in and it actually works! i got all the brackets in and done, then adjusted the cables, i am pretty happy with it so far. I need to fill the 205 with fluid and put the torque converter on the transmission.

I am about ready to reinstall the transmission and tcase, but i need to find the radio noise capacitors which bolt on the back of the head, I am hoping the dealer can get it.

reinstall that mess then i can finally install the starter and hopefully finish up some wiring that is really bothering me.

I also painted the bottom side of the cab. Tomorrow I will go over to my friends house and get the slider mounts he made in the lathe that way I can work on the drivers seat. it will be able to slide forward and back around 6" that way different people can drive it fairly easy. Belt mounts to come and more bracing, but for now I just want the seats in it so I can finish up the gauges and maybe drive it(ha)

I figured I would bring it down at an angle to where the back seats used to be. Any suggestions?

I keep thinking I need to tie it into the frame to make the cab and frame more of one piece. What are your thoughts on that?

they look so comfy. Yeah they need to be tied into the frame/rear cage in some way so in a crash/wreck everything holds and moves in the same way. if they are seperate bad things can happen. mainly more when the harnesses are setup wrong, or one part of the seat/harness setup is attached to the cab and the other is through to the frame.
