Jabe looking spectacular. B)
I see you trasom mount is "jacked up". Is there metal behind that, Or is it just wood. If its just wood, you are not worried that the wood will split with the force of the motor?

I like the look of those guides. New or old? and who makes them so I can locate a set myself?

no to the extra guides, the cable looks good as is........i did go through the opening in the corners of the front dash, and did add guides up inside.........the cable use to rub pretty good up in there, i could see wear marks along the inside edge........
