Frame Lifted and Moved Over

Mike got new jack stands (6 tons / 24 inches), so that he can start working underneath the car. He also moved it closer to the center of the garage for more room. Now, if I could just get him to put some of that junk away…oh wait, that sounds like nagging, huh? I almost forgot the first wife rule of a Factory Five 818 build…no nagging!

Clutch Installed

Previously, I mentioned that the clutch was installed with the flywheel, but it wasn’t actually attached…now it is! All bolted in and ready for the transmission. About that transmission…it’s sort of MIA at the moment, so we’ll let you know when we find it!
