Pics from yesterday.

Thomas had to go to work, this morning, so I didn't feel right pushing it last night and keeping him up.

I cost us at least 40 minutes in dropping the engine in when I put the dogbone mount on the transmission....backwards.

Even though this has taken twice as long as we all thought, Ben'* Bonne will be buttoned up tight. No shortcuts, so slop. A VERY thorough job and a few extra things that we didn't plan on addressing, but did, since the motor was out. I have learned ALOT of tips and tricks and if I had to do it all over again, I am sure it would have taken about half the time.

I can't thank Thomas and Julie enough for opening up thier house and garage to us for the last 3+ days. We took Thomas away from his family and he got very little done except for helping us. (Andrew, Thomas would like to add a Bonneville Club sticker to his low 12 second grand prix, so I will be ordering a couple for him, soon)

Also, a BIG thanks, to Thomas' friend, John. He was very instrumental in helping with every tricky situation and many unknown issues that popped up. He has a similar need on his Grand Prix GT and of course, Ben and I will be there to help him complete his project.
