Got a ton done today.
Spent most of the day under the car. Which isn’t so bad, with the car on a 4′ lift and me on a padded TailBone seat. I’m soooooo happy I have the lift, to do all this stuff. It would REALLY suck on jack stands and a creeper.
I never met a fan I didn’t like. But this radiator did.
Anyway, removed the remaining side skirt, all the rear suspension / brakes stuff, under-body braces, exhaust, heat shields, EVAP system… lots of stuff.
Not many surprises, but a few. One was… the front swaybar moved enough to pinch off a wire on a nearly-new O2 sensor. Drat. Might try to repair it.
While I was under there, I did all the under-the-car engine removal stuff. Then, was like, “no big deal to go ahead and pull the engine”… so I did.
Healthy heart harvested from the corpse, ready to transplant into a healthy body.
Sad…. this old friend of mine will never carry a motor or passenger again. Headed to the shredder very soon.
Only about a day’s work left to finish stripping it. That will probably happen sometime next week, after the new body goes to the fabricator.
Parts continue to arrive. Excellent, clean used left Xenon…
Also received the tapless adapter for my oil pressure sensor.
Tomorrow… trip to SC to pickup the new shell! Probably no updates until Sunday.
