Got a call from the body shop. It turns out the radiator support had been replaced once before. Whoever did it last time didn't get it on straight. It took some work to clean up the old welds but the new one is on and aligned as it should be. $425 in labor, and I know this guy so he's giving me a discount. I'll try to get a picture in the morning. Won't have a trailer to pick it up until Friday at the earliest.
It's been almost 2 weeks since I ordered the internals from ModMax.... still not shipped. It wouldn't bother me so much, but they charged my card at the time of order. If they didn't have the parts in stock, they shouldn't have charged my card until they were ready to ship...
Got the suspension and K-member removed today. As typical, the lower control arm to K-member bolts are a bitch to remove. I've got the nuts off, but the bolts are seized to the metal sleeve inside the bushing. I have them soaking with penetrating oil now. I still don't have the rods or pistons. Hopefully Monday...
That should make getting the engine back in much easier.
Some rust to clean up and paint. The entire engine bay is going to be POR 15 satin black. I think we are going to get a POR 15 engine paint kit in Ford corporate blue to paint the motor.
