20191210_062404.jpg installed some trim on the sunroof opening gonna gut the trunk and clean the 15 years of dust from the trunk floor reinstall the trunk parts and back seats and the back half of the car will be done. Just picked up my engine hoist to finally pull this motor. Hopefully do some engine bay cleaning and prep for the new harness and new motor and trans. Im happy with the overall progress so far i cant wait to see this project through.

Wrestled the motor out finally, had to use my mini sledge and a giant flat head to wedge the engine and trans apart. Lifted it up and down a few times and she finally cleared the two big bolts coming off the motor. Gonna start the degreasing process and some painting and freshen the engine bay up. Should i keep the engine bay black paint it white, red or wrb?

Had to take my daughter home after having her for the holidays 1100 miles figured I'd kill 2 birds with 1 stone got a trans for my daily and a momo steering wheel for project blob and got a free wing and trunk from a rear end collision car. Wing was pretty damaged but its free so mind as well take it.

So i was pulling apart this spare motor from the project blob and the intake and stuff seems pretty clean on the inside. I took apart the intake and found this date stamped on it. Could this motor be rebuilt?

Started polishing these parts for the project car. I got a few scratches to sand back down on a few parts and work back up to a polish. but this is my progress so far the ac needs the most work it was pretty pitted. But non of the parts are polished yet just wet sanded with 1500 im gonna sand out the imperfections and then work them up to 3000 grit then a good buff. I have like no finger nails left on my right hand from trying to get all the nooks and crannies lol.... anyway thanks for looking.
