Replacing 1st body cross member and trying to figure out how to get my aftermarket floorplans dry fitted without gaps.

Then, if there's time, finish stripping all the hardware out of my doors before sending them off to media blasting.

I don't necessarily agree with everything I say.

Over Six inches yesterday, and has rained all night. Guess that the LEBC meeting is going to be a wash out - but no complaints from here.

Think about bolting down the frame ground before painting it. You'll get better contact, and you can seal it down with the paint.

I replaced a heater hose, upper radiator hose, flushed radiator, new fan belt and vacuum lines as a form of preventative maintenance. Last weekend it was new plugs, MSD wires and stripped and repainted my Powered by Ford valve covers.

Next weekend HEI Distributor, new stereo (Ipod ready) I figured with 1K watts might as well have an IPod hook up.

And the best thing I will do with it today is take the wife, the German Shepherd and my insane Jack Russell Terrier over to the beach in Half Moon Bay to play on the beach and in the Pacific.

That is if the wife will ever stop getting ready.

not the 74 but the 78 tow rig, Finished tearing the engine down for the overhaul and have the hydroboost mounting bracket figured out. Good news the engine looks great for 200K. Next week sand blast and paint all the engine accessories, oil pan, finish cleaning out the engine bay and paint it. (hopefully!)

Well today I put a new sender in the intake and got my water temp gauge working. Then I went looking for that little miss I have. Long story short I ended up pulling the distributor out. I was going to swap in a different one just to cross it off the list. Well the oil pump shaft came with it. I am inside now having a beer or 3.

hmmm, let's see... got pulleys on, fought the power steering pump (aint gonna fit), figured out that I'm missing my main alternator bracket, installed the tranny dipstick and vac lines, neutral safety switch, both driveshafts, got my carb on, fought with several different air cleaners, and made a list of crap I still gotta buy.
I tell ya, putting an engine together out of boxes of parts that've been sitting for a decade, and stickin it in a chassis it was not designed for is not so easy.

Common sense seems to've become a rare superpower

Put the door handles, bumpers, safari top and fender flares back on after the paint job. Spent a lot of time cleaning off the overspray from all my previous rattle can jobs.

New battery, battery cables, v belt, oil, spark plugs, fuel filter and adjusted the clutch. Tomorrow will probably be new hoses, coolant, water pump and thermostat. Catching up on 20+ years of routine maintenance can get a little pricey...
