    Pretty much. But so much fun Actually.....yes, I have a trick little aluminum one with a leather strap that slides under the dash. I have to see if I can make it work with the new gauge/switch pod thing.

    Like all my projects this is taking much longer than I wanted, but here is another small update. I removed the stock mechanisims from the top of the trans. These will be replaced by a setup called LETSLA (Lotus Elige Transmission Shifter Linkage Assembly).....So OK, they are both LETSLA's but calling the new one LETSLA just sounds cooler. The stuff on the left, gets replaced by the stuff on the right. The pieces above the stuff on the right are used to modify the stuff on the right because even the new stuff still has flaws. A bit of a close up oriented the wrong way for good measure. This is what part of the modification is, the upper bolt spacer thing still fits loose into a counterweight. The lower roller bearing fits much tighter (I actually have to machine it) and allows it to roll. Inside the car I'm relocating all the buttons that were on the OEM Console. The Console will fit over the new shifter, but scroll up and look at it.....why would I cover that up? Here are the 3 buttons and new Console: Traction control button and door lock switch installed. I'm actually going to cut out the sunken in part of the old console out where the hazard switch mounts and glue it behind the lower gauge hole. So I can still add one gauge of my choosing at some point. Still trying to figure out the evap delete. What a pain.

    Ah, sorry for the misunderstanding. I suppose that is possible, but there doesn't seem to be anything magical there that couldn't be done with conventional sand casting.

    I'd have to look closer, but I bet it's 2 or more separate molded parts that are then sonic/heat/solvent welded together around the AWIC core. The exhaust manifold set-up is crazy though.

    Sounds pretty cool. And confident is not cocky. If you think the powers that be might have any interest in working with us, have them email at bob@c2s.com. It may not be a good fit, but could be good.

    Out of curiosity, where do you work? The place I work actually offers engineering/design work to help companies that are overloaded or suddenly find themselves without workers. Assuming you get the position, it still sounds like they may be short handed. Good luck, sounds like a cool move upwards.
  9. Is the Auto Section the only part that charges (besides job listings)? I haven't perused CL for a long time, although I did find my last truck on CL.....in Seattle. That was a hike.

    That's cool. A well maintained e39 is always nice!

    So.....anyone know the guy? Pretty local to me. Still a neat project.

    I've been primarily involved in the e39 M5 world, but there are a lot of guys that will literally ejaculate all over a Dinan badged car. To them Dinan is the epitome of automobile evolution and technology. They actually become angry when they realize they can't buy Dinan tires or gas for their cars. It's really weird and irritating. What I've experienced is that Dinan stuff is good, but wildly overpriced and only first because they get first had touches on new BMW stuff through BMW factory......so of course it will be first. They charge a premium for that. So, if you come out to your car and there is white crusty stuff on the rear end, you know what it is.

    e36 Ute?

    So....that is what I did. Worked better than the copy inbed thing I did the last time. Still not correct though. It sucks being old and just barely not legally retarded.
