|Crossmember: I used my old trans mount and modified it to fit. What I determined to be the quickest and easiest fix was to cut off the tongue of the mount and shorten the tongue by about an inch.|
|Driveshaft: Now that the trans is in I fitted the drive shaft which I had the original shaft shortened exactly 2". The shaft tube was too small to weld on a C6 end to match up with the C6 slip yoke supplied with the trans so I opted to use a combination joint to mate the two. The two U joint part numbers that I used were 1-0134BF and 1-0153BF which were Brute Force brand joints.|
Backup Light: All that is left on the underside of the car was to wire in my backup lights which is pretty self explanatory. Just take your two wires and cut the ends off the wires and crimp them into the snap in connector supplied with the trans. Snap the connector into the trans and your done.
Console: On the top side of the trans I then cut out the metal in the tunnel so that I could access the 4 rear shifter bolts from the topside and the front two I access from the bottom side as I didn't want to make any bigger opening that absolutely needed in the tunnel. As you can see the shifter is hugging the passenger side of the stock console but does fit ok. Here is a picture with the console plate in place.
|To seal up the shifter hole I made a thick rubber mat about a half inch thick and covered it with some aluminum tape being there is really no use for a shifter boot because it is built into the shifter and nothing else moves. It sort of resembles those sound deadener mats but on a much thicker basis.|
