Rich, Brian's car is really shy.  I know this cause I have taken pictures of his car before and they all came out black.

Maybe it secretly wants to be a Bandit car ;)........or it's a Vampire :o :D

I will try to get some today or tomorrow.  Engine is back in and mostly hooked up, core support is fixed blasted and in primer (gonna paint it tomorrow). Have a few shots of the core support fix.  Not the prettiest fix and I am still hoping I don't have problems lining the fender up but the cosmetic parts of the repair won't be seen once the car is back together.  Anyways will update with some photos soon.

P.S. Hammer my car is not shy at all, its a complete photo whore !!!

Well finally some more pics.  I had more but some of them mysteriously disappeared off my camera. All I have now is the end product of the core repair.  Anyways I finally got it fired yesterday and now I'm in vacuum line hell.  So much for marking them.  Why isn't there one book with a decent vacuum routing?

Well It's done.  Still have a few loose ends to wrap up (reroute some vacuum lines, electric lines, stickers, etc.) , but it does run and drive now.  I have notice I am having a hard time first putting the car into drive.  It wants to slip into neutral.  I did put on a shift kit.  Fluid level is good.  Once the car gets into drive I have no problems with it, it's just getting it there the first time.  Could it be an adjustment on the cable or something? Maybe one of my poorly or incorrectly routed vacuum lines?  Anyway heres some final results (taken at the Ohio Firebirds dust off).

Looking good Brian.  What about your shift linkage?  Is that binding?  Mine used to and caused what your indicating.
