|3-25-11 Just got started, bought the donor vehicle one month ago, bought the motor two weeks ago. Plan to get started removing the donor ICE in 2 months.|
4-20-11 Had the engine compartment and interior cleaned in preparation for pulling the engine. I hope to be able to sell it on Craig's List. I have done some minor maintenance repairs, plan to continue getting things fixed up little by little.
