    Best addition ever was the installation of electric mirrors from a Chrysler Cross Fire. I installed them on the front lower corner of the window and good set them to have great rear and side vision viewing. I have since sold the car so can't show you pictures.

    Southern GT #48

    If you are concerned about the UN-1 box look into the Chris Cole conversion to a one piece main shaft. better 1st and second gear and a limited slip.
