LOL

There is a sticky thread at the top of the Aus forum that shows how to post pics. Dave (Boxhead) did a great job on it.

Cheers

Since it's cut out of a flat sheet, I don't understand why the foot box opening can't be pre-cut at the factory. I don't even think it's an add-on option.

Hell, I would have paid a little extra (if required) to have this done for me at the factory, because I can tell you, it was a PITA!

Don't be a sook Simon.

Just suck it up and get on with it.

I fitted my foot box probably 3 or 4 times to get it right.

And it gives you great satisfaction when its finished right.

Brad, you should be a motivational speaker..!

Dean, does the trans tunnel need to be modified to run the auto trans, or does it fit within the standard AP build configuration?

I think it fits in the tunnel but because the trans im using is quite deep in its construction they raise the engine and trans a bit but all within the standed trans tunnel
