4 1/2 hours, 3 band-aids, 2 trips to home depot = the engine is out!

hahah I would but that would only mean giving up one precious day of work on the Y84 so, no, sorry LOL

Btw I've had it for 4 weeks now not 4 days, I first posted up here recently but I've got a thread running over on TAC as well since the day I got it.

I guess it's not how fast you can do it but how long you can keep doing it.

Nice progress - looks like you're ready to clean & paint.  I've read over cleaner works well in other threads.

Not quite! There's still soda blasting and there's a certain amount of body work to be done, there's a good number of little dings to address along with the rust and the dent on the RH quarter panel. Also, I'm giving the underside the loving it deserves. There's a lot of tiny things through the car that I personally choose to give attention to.

A bit of progress on the firewall. There's only a few things left to pull before things really start to come together.

Oh and word of advise incase you didnt already know. Keep everything incase you cant find it later. You might just be able to clean it up and use it until you find what your looking for down the road.
