Officially, you have 31-days left and I'm headed to the barn to retrive the leather saddle to rub it down with Murphy's oil. Oh yeah, I'm sharpening my boot spurs too.

Didn't you get this car about 12 years ago??

I'll be back in FL in 32 months with my fiero. If you don't have your car done, well, I guess I'll wait longer.

Dean,

The package is on the way,....barely !

On the way to the post office this morning my daily driver decides to die on the side of the road just on the other side of a very busy intersection, i was able to coast safely thru. i ended up spending half the day sitting on the side of the road waiting for my mechanic friend, and then a tow truck.

I will find out the damage ($) tommorow. ;(

Dean check your PM.

Today we got the 3800 back together and cleaned out the bay and repainted it with Chassis black paint.
I also removed the old battery tray and cleaned up the cradle a bit more as well. I just got the mounts from Tony today so we will get the cradle painted and start to mount the motor.

the clean bay with a freas coat of paint.





I will be installing a new mat on the fire wall to cut down heat and noise but it will be a newer product that works better than the old nasty stock stuff.
