The stall that has the engine and trans in right now was full up until today. The shop next door has been parking their truck there. Been talking to the shop and I now have that stall back. Loosing about $40 a month, but I could really use the space.

The front struts have one bolt each on top, and the castle nut is only on by a few threads. Just need to pop the calipers off and it'* off. Haven't done anything in back yet. Think I might pull the fuel pump tomorrow. I dont see much reason to pull the front sub frame, unless you want it. Steering rack?? The inside of the car I'll wait for you. But seeing I now have that other stall opened up I may pull everything out of the inside that'* already loose.

A buddy of mine needs the gas cap, can he have it or what do you want for it. Not like a new one costs much.

Not sure what else I can grab from the front. The washer tank I can grab, the ABS module is in the back seat. Tomorrow I can go over things closely,

Darn near craped myself after the engine was out. I moved the lift and let go. It shifted and a front wheel went in to the drain hole in the floor and tipped over. The engine dropped about 6 inches and hit the floor. Landed on a engine mount, so no damage, other then the floor and my shorts. I grabbed the lift and I'm like no no no no. Once the engine was on the floor the lift kept falling towards my car, I was shoving real hard. It missed, just.

One of my wheels is bent and keeps sticking. Thanks for the reminder to stop being cheap. I don't wanna drop a motor, luckily I have no drain...or is that unluckily...hmmm

No wonder the car keeps peeing itself, you've been tearing it'* guts out. Great work Dan. I'm assuming you are going to be doing some major work while you've got the engine out. Think about grabbing some aluminum valve covers? They really look and feel nice!
