Star Trek Beyond is the best one of the "new" Trek movies. While it has those moments that remind you that it's a modern day rendition of The Original Series, it is what the first two movies should have been.

I'll also say it was cool to see the entire original crew again... but those engines needed to be more... rectangulAr. 😋

After getting the hole in the floorboard roughly cut out for the shifter, it was time to get the transmission in the wagon to see just how much more was required to trim.

In order to do that, I needed to get my rusty transmission crossmember repaired. It wasn't difficult to make the new end tubes, but since I don't have a welder, or experience welding, I asked my step-Dad Roger for some help. He did a great job welding the tubes on, and I painted the whole thing up to stop future corrosion.

Since I had a nice, painted crossmember it only made sense to paint the transmission, the bellhousing, and the clutch fork. Once those were done drying, the transmission went in, the hole in the floor was cut to its finished size, and the lower shift boot was installed.

In order to finish off the interior the carpet was cut for the shifter, a new upper shift boot was obtained, thanks to a great Christmas gift from the wife, my favorite steering wheel was painted, and with a little help from my youngest son, the interior was reinstalled. It's all starting to come together.

This has to be the funniest product review ever.
A strange, yet funny email exchange I had in my quest to learn about how to wear FRIGO underwear.

To me, the Turbo has never really performed that much better than my Moto X 2013 did. The battery life of obviously better, and the camera is too at times, but sometimes the software seems slower and it becomes unresponsive a lot more than I remember the Moto X doing.

It's kind of easy to see that I've been kind of jumping around in the order that I'm making process. That's because I skip around in what I'm doing, plus all of this had been done for a while.

This time around you'll see that I'm removing the old V6 and automatic transmission. The transmission was sold to a guy who is using it in a Mustang II, and the 3.8L V6 has been recycled. The money raised from that was used to buy more parts. I've also done some quick rust prevention and painting in the engine compartment. It's not pretty, but it'll eventually get painted when the car is.... but mostly likely not.

I've also removed the engine wiring harness and significantly reduced it down to a couple of wires to run the in-tank fuel pump. It's a low pressure pump so it will work nicely with the carburetor, but to be safe I'm going to run a fuel pressure regulator as well.

Since the wagon was originally CFI (Central Fuel Injection) the EEC (computer) took care of fuel and spark. With no computer I have no ignition, so I wired in a Duraspark box to handle those duties. I want 100% sure if I should run a ballast resistor so I put one in line anyways to protect the coil.

Next time I'll cover the fuel side of the equation and plumbing in the fuel regulator to the factory plastic lines.

I reached the point where I wanted to get something done inside the wagon. I figured switching out the automatic pedal assembly for the manual transmission pedal assembly would a stepping stone to getting more things done.

I've changed out the assemblies before in other Fox chassis vehicles, but this time it was a bit more difficult. Working around the automatic shifter linkage on the steering column was something I had not dealt with before, and cutting the transmission tunnel was also something new.

In the end, getting it done was satisfying and got me excited to keep moving on.

I've slowly been collecting parts that will go towards three areas of the wagon, the drivetrain swap, fixing the damaged front end, and overall safety of the vehicle.

It's been frustrating how slow things have been going but when your saving money and buying stuff as funds allow, it's going to take some time.

My 2006 Sedona has been rattling consistently for a couple of months now. This video pretty much confirms what I've been reading about it. I bought this van because I didn't want to work on stuff anymore. Jokes on me.

After the snow had melted it was time to see what I was working with.

The wagon is solid, but has some surface rust. The previous owner had ran over something in a parking lot and damaged the passenger side fender. The engine leaks a lot of oil so the engine bay and underneath of the wagon are soaked. The radiator is shot. The brakes are bad. There's a lot wrong, but it's OK. Things are getting replaced anyways.
