   Been super busy with work lately! I've run into an issue with the crossmember that came with my trans kit. The holes for the trans mount don't line up with the mount on the trans (the trans is in the car already). I've been waiting for them to make me a new crossmember. In the meantime, I need some help picking out wheels for the car. I like the Year One 18" snowflakes, but they are SO expensive, I'm gonna consider something cheaper. Thoughts? suggestions?  ;D

Yea, the torque thrusters look good, just don't want them on my ride. I don't think they would look good on a TATA

Wow, ok it's been a while... not sure where I left off with you guys. The car unfortunately has taken a back seat to work and responsibilities. The latest is that I finally ordered those 18" snowflakes. They'll take a while to get I'm told. I've been going round and round with the company that makes the 5-speed trans. They apparently had an idiot working there who screwed up everyone's orders. I finally got the trans mount correct, and now I'm waiting for the new drive shaft to show up, since the first one they sent was made too long...
