Engine bay is empty now. Pressure washed the bay and the wheel wells for paint. Will need to address the battery tray unfortunately.

Motor is just about ready to drop in, just need to do the rear main seal and clean up the alternator. Ran into an issue with the trans shop. they had my trans for almost 2 months with no info on whether or not it will be finished. Thankfully i had the car wired in my ls harness for both auto and stick and took the time with a friend to install the pedals and hydraulics. I even ordered the clutch since the trans ive had for 2 years now. Today the clutch showed up and my auto trans was completed. The auto will go in cause i dont want to be breaking in a clutch in ocean city.

Tracing some electrical issues. Installed a brand new radio with a conversion harness and when i turn the headlights on the radio cuts out and restarts. Ive been tearing into the dash to get it situated but im hoping its just a ground.

Little bit of a fast forward, Car is running great and I took it down to ocean city with my girlfriend and her iroc. So far performing great with only a few things to tidy up for it to be "finished"
