Hi Tom - I don't know what that collar is. It was on the donar, and I did not plan on removing it and opening an unknown can of worms. I've already opened that 4 inch space to 6 inches. But if it can be removed, my tranny tunnel will be narrower, giving me better clearance for the seats. I think I will at leaast look a bit closer at it.

Oldejack and MYTF - Thanks. The 1 inch offset sounds like a good start point.

Looks like it might be a guibo. If so it can go away and your tunnel can be narrower.

Hey, still going after 8 years! Good on ya. That's a nice ride.

How many miles do you think you've put on it since it was finished?

Cheers,

We love pictures! They can be a lot bigger too, especially for a finished car.

If you wouldn't mind it would be nice if you put a thread in the "Completed Builds" section, with a link to your build log. It's a nice way for newcomers to see that we do get some completed builds.

:cheers:
