I decidet to lift up the shell and get the whole drivetrain fitted from under the car, it was very easy, important ot losen the oilstick and turn out the last fixing point of the left exhaustmanifold to get enough clearance on bide sides. The Gearbox in lnght is only a few mm different to the automatic-box so the driveshaft leaves untoutched. At the front the 6.3 leaf-springs fits well as the spax-shocks. For the brakelines I have to make the metal tube on the kingpin a little longer with a handmade spacer.
Yesterday I took the metalbrackets from the tropicalizzazion, they shine as new in gold-yellow and can be fitted.Tomorrow I will dedicate a little time on the sliding-window!
