Misc Summer Work

I finally found some acceptable floor mats, for almost a reasonable price. They showed up today, so I installed them. Pretty tough, but I managed to figure it out. The fronts fit well, but the backs are too large but they will work. I also purchased a new front bumper cover. I found one at a place in Omaha and worked out a pretty good deal on it. It is not an OEM piece, so hopefully it will fit and look alright. I have a few more items on order that should be here shortly. I am out of money at this point, so the next real update won't be for at least a month.

It's been about two months since I have done anything with the car other than drive it a few times. Starting a new job and moving out of state has slowed down my progress a bit. I was able to take care of something that I should of done when I changed the transmission.

I installed an Inland Empire aluminum 1 piece drive shaft from my '93 SC to replace the original steel 2 piece unit. I'm hoping this will take care of the vibration at 65+ that showed up after the gear install. I've had more practice at removing 8.8 IRS rears than I care to admit, so things went pretty smoothly and didn't take too long. I haven't had a chance to drive the car yet, so I will have to make an update at a later point about the vibration issue.
