More updates, good news and bad. The bottom end and gearbox are sitting in the engine, secured by the mounts. In trying to get the shifter rods back in, the entire shifter assembly dropped out to the bottom…the rubber bushing that holds the shifter rod was completely broken/torn. So I need a shifter...

Finally got the car moved into the garage so I can start putting back in the engine. Gearbox and engine are mated. Borrowed a come-along from a friend, and got the TT underbody brace installed this evening.
