Nice, I'm still lacking the bellhousing and my clutch set up. Hopefully the 'ol welded case will hold up a while.

Those bell housings are the hardest parts to get, I feel like we are waiting to find a 72 gtr in white with low miles in the USA lol.

Took the SE-L to work today for a shake down. 2.5 exhaust is back on. Without the silencer, I have to roll by cops in 4th gear....it's loud! Slight leak at the cat flange to seal...no biggie. Still have to flush the brake lines with new juice, clean the air filter, have a look at the toe setting, oil change, top off fluids, lube the clutch cable, put the new track pads on for a good bed-in (should be interesting on the street) clean her up and I'm good to go.

I'll be at Maple Grove this Sunday for a charity bracket race. It should make for a really good shakedown and measure of how the new mods are working. I'm excited!

While doing the front brakes on the shoe yesterday the caliper piston dust boot wasn't seating properly and it took me a long while to figure out how to reinstall it without servicing the entire caliper. Then it started raining. So I have half of the job done. Headed out soon to finish.

Edit: I finished the other side quickly since that dust boot was in place. It started raining again so I didn't get the measurements I wanted. The wheels are staying off until I can get things measured (hopefully tomorrow).
