A couple more pointers to save more time.. Our hoods once you unhook the struts that hold them up..will go nearly straight up. Probably don't need to take them off and have to realign to the paint marks if you didn't want to.

That subframe clean yet?

That is the exciting part of wanting to go fast. The "what if" factor. Like i have always said you have to pay if you want to play.

I dont think my NA build is going to be expensive. I am hoping to do it all for about 2000-3000 by the time i am done. But my L67 build is not going to be pretty money wise lol.

Well we are using a chain hoist attached to the rafters so i took it off to be safe for clearance issues. I havent done any cleaning on either car yet. I am hoping to take the motor out of the white car once my parts arrive for the motor build. Then i will probably clean the engine bay a little.

i pushed the bottom and everything is ordered. Just shy of 500 bills. Nah, i would like to leave the motor in it for now, just incase i need it for an emergency or something. As for the knocking, i think you are right don i dont believe it is a rod knock anymore.
