Did some body work on the Mali today pulling out that dent. I’ll be getting a new door so not worried about that.

Been working on the harness for the 4.8 with help from ls1tech they have been very helpful. Pulled off all the front end today pulling out the 305 tomorrow. Finally got my engine mounts & flexplate spacer.

305 is out. Mocked up the dirty dingo motor mounts & headers. Going to clean up & paint the engine bay I’ll have it in sometime this week.

Only reason why engine is not in yet is because I have been cleaning up the frame from oil & debris decided to remove surface rust as well. Driver side had little to none, passenger side had a bit deeper rust I believe was due to A/C & radiator locations. Painting it tomorrow.

Firewall is finished up. Waiting on ac delete plate to arrive ready to drop engine in. Want to get rid of windshield wiper motor I’ll figure out how to mount an electric one once swap is done.
