I then fixed the crack and welded in a gusset for added strength.

Another issue is that my car was originally an auto. When I did the 5 speed swap I didn't have the tools or skill to weld in the upper support for the clutch pedal bracket that's under the dash. I also don't fit under there and didn't want to burn up anything while welding. So i came up with a compromise. Hopefully this gives it some support and prevents it from cracking again.

Since my valve cover is a shaved one I decided to try out a mitsu spark plug cover. I painted it but I don't have the steadiest of hands.

I also built a radiator cover out of some plastic from Menard's. Hopefully a cheap lightweight solution that wont melt. :)

After the pedal was fixed and clutch master was swapped car shifted normally! So next on the list is to re-build the power steering pump. It has a slight leak. And to re-do the turbo oil drain line. I forgot to put thread sealant on the bolts for the flange going into the oil pan. I also have to polish up a set of SHP rims. Hopping to run 9's on all corners. Seems like tire choices for that size rim are dwindling.

Looks awesome! What paint did you use for the cover trim?
