It's not an excuse, but I've hit a bit of delay: Apparently I have to paint the house. In between doing that, I have made some progress.
|Engine is on the stand and cleaned up for painting. Not sure if I want to pull the intake off or not.|
|Blasted parts ready for primer. The hood latch was mostly blasted before, but had a couple of spots that needed reblasting.|
|I have a replacement rag joint, but I am not sure how to get this one off.|
|Parking brake cable did NOT want to come free from here.|
|Eventually the cable came out in eight pieces.|
|Heater box assembled. I am now wishing I'd painted the inside too.|
|Parking brake cable is too long.|
It's rapidly approaching the time where I paint the dash. Once that's done, I suppose a lot of stuff will start getting installed rather rapidly. Still need to get the flattener for the top of the dash though. I do have the paint and the gaskets to put the motor back together, but I want to clean up the oil pan and the valve covers a bit more before I paint them.
Still need to get the transmission parts.
Go back to the previous day (4 June 09)
