My Engine compartment
« on: May 22, 2006, 04:19:08 PM »
Here are some progress pictures of my engine compartment.  I am almost ready to start putting it back together.   With the exception of the AC and a few minor details I am done with the engine.

These are the before pictures:








And now it looks like this:

I would guess about 100 hrs....?  I really didnt keep up with my time,  but I started on it in March, working weekends etc.
I finished painting the inside of the fenders and plan on putting the front fenders, fender wells, and radiator support back on this weekend.
