One thing to consider for your rustproofing is instead of undercoating use bed liner. It's much tougher.

Finished pulling the engine harness and some other odds and ends.


Got to admit, I'm a bit overwhelmed at the prospect of getting it all back together, and the amount of things I'm going to be changing at once is down right insane. Gonna be an adventure to get it going!

Pulled the cross member out:



The rack was loose on the cross member, look at this ****:




Bolts have completely failed, and it looks like some knucklehead tried to cut the cross member to get access to put some nuts on those bolts, but gave up. Unbelievable. Thank god for the donor car.


Annoying, because now I have to completely disable the donor car for its crossmember/rack... more dismantling.

Still slowly hammering away...

Crossmember number two is out. This one looks fantastic. Working on the 88 has helped affirm my decision to eventually scrap the Donortona though, unbelievable rust underneath. The bolt under the drivers foot well gave me fits, I broke several socket extensions on that damn thing. Still it's out, and it's solid.



The 2.5 is spic and span, ready for some paint:





Turbo is completely disassembled, cleaned up, and I picked up a 2.5" swing valve to complete the package.







Just plodding along....
