Back to tranny shop where I had a Freddie brown full manual valve body with electric overdrive and complete rebuild. Put about 600 Miles on last fall. Burnt clutch’s in rear end getting Detroit locker next. Starting to pull interior to install roll bar and harnesses. And in response to a question, it’s a 1993 splash

UPDATE:
Interior is out. Bolt-in roll bar is almost done. 6-point harness mounts in-process.
New sub woofer enclosure on paper then dynamat.
Also doing a rewire/clean-up soon. Here’s some new pics. Please dont be to hard on me about the rat nest of wires and the duct tape, it was never meant to be permanent.....IMG_0554.JPGIMG_0562.JPGIMG_0583.JPGIMG_0586.JPG
Here’s the detail on the bolt-in roll bar. I know it’s not all NHRA and stuff but I think it will work....hopefully.
