Here's a vid on how I removed the RTABs. Very easy. Get poly ones for sure. Better performance and much easier installation.

It's really bad. Lmao. I just made a plate out of metal so the subframe doesn't pull through anymore. Two pacman looking washers screwed down to the frame holding it up.

No, I don't think you missed anything. It's possible that I missed something, though. That Camry seemed like a trainwreck of a plan from square one.

The Camry is still in my moms garage. Haha. My roommate literally has no money to buy this motor so that's what we are waiting on. I dunno what I'm going to do with it. Thinking about selling it as is.

Thanks! I gotta get out with my camera more often. I've been slacking during the rainy season, but there's no reason for that other than laziness.
