    Well tonight i got the transmission unbolted from the blco and the power steering pump disconnected. Just motor mounts and a few wires and shes ready to pull. Should be out around noon. Then the fun starts. Keep an eye out for progress. -Matt

    One of my favorite colors for late 2nd gens. I'm looking forward seeing what you do to it over the summer. I have an 81 that I'm thinking of painting the same color once I get to working on it again.

    Thanks for the support and commnet. Well engine bay is cleaned pretty well. Still have some to do but nothing to bad. Cleaned the cowl and inside the cowl and treated the surface rust. So tomorrow i will see how good it turned out. I will post pictures when i get a chance to upload them. Still havn't gotten far on the motor yet but i need to replace some freeze plugs while im in there. Unfortunatly a few of the exhaust manifold bolts broke so i have to figure out what to do about that. But one step at a time. Will Post pics soon so stay tuned. -Matt

    new oil pump, and screen, new freeze plugs, new gaskets on the pan and the front and rear main seals. Then chrome timing chain cover. Strip and repaint the motor factory blue. Delete all the emissions vaccum hoses. I think thats it for now lol. Might have forgot somthing.
