Let us know when you get lost and need help getting the car back together (which I know the phone call will come eventually).

Well after my near death experience on roller skates I have finally been able to get back to work on the car !!
I am almost ready to put the engine back in !!  I decided since I had the engine and tranny out that now would be a good time to install a shift kit !! Yeahhhhhh !! Got to go back to Summitt Racing !!  Hopefully tomorrow the father in law and I will be able to get the core support welded back together.  If I hadn't said I found a little rot under the battery tray on the support so we cut the bad metal out and are welding in some new.  Anyways here's a few shots of what it's looking like now.  And yes I did paint the sparkplugs blue but don't worry those are the old plugs.

I am trying.  Gonna put a full day of work in tomorrow.  I am pretty sure I will get it done, but if any unforseen problems arise I may be in trouble.
