I wasn't happy with the paint on the top of the engine crossmember, so I taped the bottom and resprayed it.
Then I tried to install the bushings. Not pictured: gigantic screwdrivers, prybars, and big scratches in my fresh paint. I fucked it up.
Paint... for the third time!
I decided to install a junk block/trans/head assembly so I can build the exhaust and power steering lines. I originally wanted to install the real motor, but I have a spare setup laying around and that will prevent scratches in the real parts.
This trans has been laying around outside for months, and it was junk when I got it. I decided to gut it so I can lift it easier.
I didn't have the huge hex key for the selector shaft plug, so I made one!
Transferred to a junk socket:
Skip a few steps
I decided to spray the trans and block with some junk primer, just to keep everything clean.
I was missing a transmission bracket, but Brady had one. He cruised out in his Cabrio to deliver it and check on my progress.
This thing is cool! Borbet E's, old Mason-Tech airride, and brown Plasti Dip.
All ready to drop in.
