Did a number of things over the past weekish.

Removed the tranny from the motor. Getting that all ready for install.

Brushed off the surface rust and repainted the rear crossmember too.

Installed AGX's and ordered new rotors as the ones it came with were unsavable.

Rear hatch is installed too.

So many little things hahaha. But, progress is progress.

Put on the JDM roof rails and bumper yesterday. I think it's confirmed, no longer is this OBS waiting to be a project, it's officially a project haha. It gets more hooptyness every time I add a part.

Really could use a full body PDR session. Someday. Paint + body are in a galaxy far,far, away.

Loving that it's finally starting to come together though, can't wait to get the 6-speed in.

So this past week I decided to put Kodama up on 4 stands to start the tear down. I've made a ton of progress.

11-09-15 Weekend progress:
- All Fluids drained except coolant
- Driveshaft removed
- Front/Rear Hubs/Brakes/Control Arms/Lateral Links removed
- Ebrake cables removed
- Stock exhaust removed

Next steps will be to get the old 5-speed out and drop the rear subframe. Once that's completed I'll begin installing all the new suspension bits back in and preparing to install the 6-speed and remove old motor.

Finally starting to come along.
