Getting close, folks. The transmission and driveshaft are fully installed, I am currently getting the car prepped to roll. Waiting for cooldown to check on the transmission fluid level, its possible I overfilled it a touch but im hoping the level should drop. I only put a quart in the converter.

Unfortunately it looks like im going to have to reinstall the shifter as the cable is pretty stiff.

Also, I have 2 leaks. The top transmission cooler fitting is leaking under pressure. Also my oil pressure sender is doing the same.

Still left: fix/reinstall shifter, fiberglass floor pans, itires, brake test, leaks, and the body bolt and Ishould be good for a shakedown. Then the front of the car just needs to go back together, and some minor quality of life fixes.
