Few pics from how I spent my saturday afternoon, pulled the radiator and support, then yanked the motor so I had more room to work while I clean and repaint the engine bay, replace the wiring harness, swap out the th350 with a 2004-r and install the freshly powder coated control arms with poly bushings

Hope I meet my May 14th deadline that I gave myself

Same motor is going back in with a few changes, will be swapping out the cam with a Comp Thumpr Cam, changing out the heads for a set of World motown heads I had redone at the machine shop and will be swapping out the performer carb and intake with an Air Gap performer(2601) and a new Holley I just aqquired, the rest of the motor is still pretty solid (forged speed pro flat tops, SIR rods, and a eagle crank)

Will be taking alot of pics along the way of the entire process , the car was a Mega Bubba ride :laughing:when I got it but its slowly but surely coming along:thumbsup:

I'd like to see your underhood when she's all buttoned up! Update us with some pics! :D

I'm at the 'lower thumb-knuckle' near Richmond. Not far off one of the legendary cruisin' strips of Detroit called Gratiot Ave.
The car cruises in this part of the state are growing every year! There's the (now world famous) Woodward Dream Cruise, The Gratiot Cruise and many others.
:cheers:
