Hey Steve, that guy said he'll take the stripped body. That saves a bit of trouble.

See a pic of you lying on the concrete pulling parts. That concrete sends cold right through the body. Kudos for doing it, but SawGunner may want to bring some Army green wool blankets next time.

Really wasn't that bad, as long as the sun was out. When it clouded over, then it started getting cold. And everything was wet, and that kind of sucked.

Most of us will be looking forward to Summer, it has been a cold and overly snowy Winter.

Sounds good Steve. I'm going to try and pull the engine on thursday when the kids are at school, then perhaps pull the trans. Once those are gone I can get at the ABS system, master cylinder, and anything else I can get off.

Today I cleaned up the shop and the parking lot. Found a lot of bolts and screws, not something I want in my tires.

The wife was gone for a while so I got a little more work done.

Found the WSS were still plugged in, and that'* part of the wiring harness, so those are unplugged. Unplugged the transmission. Looks like I have nearly everything ready to pull the engine. So Thursday when I have off I'm going to pull the inspection panel, remove the 3 bolts holding the torque converter on, then remove the right lower engine mount. It'* studded to the engine so should be some what easy. Then it'* only the engine to diff bracket, the backwards bolt, and the other bell housing bolts. I can then lift it off and get that on the stand. Then Friday I'll pull the transmission. My plan is to have the engine compartment completely empty when you get here Saturday. Then it'* a mater of pulling the hubs and suspension, then finish with the inside.

I haven't cut any plugs. Wasn't going to do that until the very end.
