    I hope this is allowed but instead of rewriting everything, I thought I'd post a link from the sewing site.

    Here's the trouble I've gotten into lately...

    Seats


    Oscar's rebuild.

    Like I said, hope it's okay to cross post within another site but I thought ya'll may want to see how it's coming along.

    Should have shaved the bay while you had the engine out and prepping for a respray.:p

    Looks phenomenal. I'm envious of your bodywork skills and resources. Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing the stripped down pictures.:Thumbsup:

    The OS Giken Super Lock LSD if very forgiving for many types of gear box fluid, but the Shock Proof is too thick for daily driving and not as kind on the synchros; MTL works great. I hope you didn't follow Madness' video direction for adding the fluid before joining the housing halves.

    I hadn't yet... I ordered the fluid but haven't received it yet. What was wrong with Madness's directions?

    Thanks,

    So here is the issue. Seems that other site takes MotoringAlliance.com and turns it into ****************.com when ever it is used.

    While I have no issue with links to other sites it seems that one other site does not play fair. I'm not about to do the same to that site just because that is being a bad netizen and I don't stoop to those low brow tactics.

    Nathan,

    Thanks bud, I appreciate it. I didn't think it was a big deal but I understand that because of their arrogance if you wanted to delete this, it would be understandable.

    Thanks bud,

    Mark

    I've been following the thread, nice job on the rebuild. Should turn out awesome. Did you ever post any pictures of the car after the "wall experience" but before the tear down? I am curious to see it. It's amazing how strong these little suckers are.

    Re: sewing site, the other day I was helping someone by posting a link within nam to a build that was now more updated here in motoring alliance (the works4me twincharge setup). I never posted a link, just mentioned the motoring alliance (without the .com). That post was originally removed and eventually put back after a couple of hours. Since that post I now have supervised posting with a couple hours' delay on every post. No warning, no notice, no reason, no anything. Big brother apparently doesn't like MA.

    Not to derail my own thread but thats ridiculous. Guess I have to edit my own thread so I don't get banned.

    Big brother's got an inferiority complex.

    Sweet build, Mark. I might have to get down to RRR this fall just to see it in person.

    You can just post links there using bit.ly, tiny, shorturl and other free "short URL" redirection services.
