Time for final fit checks before body finishing
The rearend with torque arm is fitted and a measurement can now be made to make a driveshaft and rear disk brake mounting. Tube type rear shocks were already adapted before this conversion.
The actual engine is fitted to get exact measurements for the eng. to trans. adapter plate to have a finished cut on the lower portion, oil line positioning and exhaust header can also be measured and constructed. Measurements can also be taken for the raising of the center section of the hood for carb clearance.

The Spicer Type joints were used rather than the "CV" joint of the TR-7 so that a worn-out joint can be replaced from any corner parts store.
