Dealt with two problems: first the driveshaft would rub a lot and second, the front left tire was sucking in the front of the fender and bending the **** out of while reversing.

First solution was to go back to the Energy t5 trans mount and to slot the holes of the trans side ears. Then it was easy enough to align it with the center slot in the STS crossmember. This spaced up the tail of the trans and hence lowers the center u joint. Added bonus is that the shifter is comfortably closer to my right hand!

As for the fenders, commando bumper cars just have thr fenders bolted to rubber straps attached to the bumpers. I simply cut, bent, and drilled some aluminum L channel from home depot to space out and stabilize the sheetmetal. Looks a little bit more aggressive now!
