Still in the swap mode...this saturday will be 2 weeks down :( Basically I'm on to re-assembly...just need to fix a freeze plug and then put tranny/t-case back on and she's back in the engine....ready to see if my Fuel Injection works :D

I had to paint and get rid of that purple engine :lmao:

the dog....is bitter...

More progress over the weekend...drivetrain back in. There are lots of little gotcha's and fixes along the way. still have plenty to do before I can turn the key...but it's much closer now.

last night i put the radiator on, alternator, battery and some hoses. Hoping to get exhaust on tonight, and start wiring the beast up.
