Hey Precise1, thanks for the reply! I've seen your posts in my research. I found Harbinger's MT swap particularly helpful and an interesting read. Anyway, I appreciate you getting back to me - good to meet someone on here in the area. Sounds like you have your own pathy projects and I wouldn't want mine to cause your divorce, lol.
I haven't been on here for a while, but in the meantime I've collected just about everything I need for the swap. Definitely spent more on parts then I would have on a donor but without a garage or driveway the donor vehicle isn't an option.
I'm going to start with pulling the dash and swapping the brake pedal with a MT brake pedal and install the clutch pedal and clutch master cylinder with hose. I don't have the dampener so I'm trying a dampener bypass with stainless brake hose right to the operation cylinder. I hope to do as much as I can curbside then take it to a local shop to drop the auto trans and install the manual trans I picked up.
