        Got the trim put on, the lock strip I ordered was a plastic crap, good thing Mad dart had the clips that screw into the sides, so we took the glass back out, installed the trim lock tabs, Ray put in a locking rubber and then we installed the stainless trim pieces. Finished the coil wiring yesterday, now just running the wire for the alternator power for the chassis wiring fuse box, and will use that to the reducer for the cam position sensor so that will get power right off the alt.

          Cant install the turbo headers due to the arp bolts have been packed, I thought I kept them out guess not, something to do up in Idaho. Leave this Thursday for the first trip up with stuff.

                Well put the headers on, need to order some 6 pt bolts for a few holes, but looks like I need to remove the front part of the inner fenders to clear the turbos. And need to buy a few spark plug wire protectors and clamp on heat shield for the area close to the master.

                    Thank you, oh me too. Always something more to do, the cutting will happen after the move. Exhaust should be really fun to make.

                      Well me and the dart made it safely up to Idaho. I get to unload it into my dad big garage so I can actually open the doors all the way lol and walk around it easier lol.

                          Had a little bit of time between helping my parents and this morning had some pre work stuff to get done before I start my new job here in Idaho. So yeah I'll cut out the front part of the inner fenders, rotate the turbos a bit and should make room for the feed IC piping to go under the inlet side and up to the TB, wastegates might turn outward and have the tubing go out the front inner fender and dump straight down, will wrap both those and the downpipes but leave the headers unwrapped. A little over my head, exhaust will be interesting to fab. Will figure it out and get something to work. Want to get this all done before I fire it up, that way just take it off, fire, run a few time for a few days drain the oil and put the turbos back on but all that fab will be done, hopefully, see how the game plan works out. Any thought or ideas, I welcome input, also forgot to mention I ordered my 3.5" chromemoly driveshaft from strange.

                            Been a crazy week drove my wife and youngest back down to cali yesterday and flew back up today, haven't had a chance since last time to work on the dart but I will. Something did show up today though, my driveshaft so that was awesome to open.
