    Got the motor assembled. Painting some things along the way. Going to start cleaning up the engine bay and paint it red to match the body.

    Painted the engine bay. It was a job for sure. A lot of cleaning and scrubbing went into it. Worth it in the end in my opinion

    goal is to pull trans and mate up with engine this weekend.

    Motor installed. Having some issues getting it running. The car has a fuel pump rewire that wasn’t receiving signal in for the fuel pump. I since ran a keyed 12v from the engine bay fuse box to the master sender signal. Works with key on to get the signal and the the rewire relay does the rest. I still feel like possible no/low spark issue. Currently NOT running

    Took her around the block! Been a while for update due to waiting on an axle. Got it installed finally.
    Starting to push body work. Hope to have her painted by end of May.
    Tires on the way.
    Air filter , dip stick and NGK wires on the way from STM

    Are you spraying it at home or at a shop?

    I’m trying to avoid doing it at hope. I made a mess last time. My wife wasn’t a fan!
    I’m trying to get a friend to lend me a booth at his shop since it’s closed due to the Rona.
    Either way I intend to spray it myself either way.
