Finally sent the engine back to the machine shop to bore the cylinders! Should have it back in two weeks to start assembling it!

Today was just another day of stripping! Got most of the passenger side stripped as well as the drivers side. I also started sanding some of the drivers side, which obviously isn't done yet. Lots of work left!

Did some stripping of the paint off the car very carefully with a razorblade. Saves on sandpaper! Still lots left to do, even though the hood/roof/and trunklid is all done.

Well, since spring has finally arrived, it is time to get into it once agian at full steam! Began by pulling the whole front clip apart, swapping the 15x7 Rally II's with a set of roller 15x7 Snowflake wheels to avoid damage to the Rally II's.

Finally the rear end is complete. I pulled the rear suspension, swapped the axle (original was a 2.41 posi unit) to a 3.23 posi unit, repainted the swaybar,and fixed some minor rust holes in the trunk floor while I had the gas tank out. Overall, I think it came out very well!
