    Looks a hundred times better than factory! Keep it going & don't get depressed... Your making progress at a good enough rate! If you need to take a break? Take one IMHO.... ;)

    Made some progress before work today . Got the headlight ballasts in and hidden now so you don't see them when the hood is open and also got the battery clean and in the tray . then went to work on the motor . marked all the pistons and started disassembling . Tomorrow I plan on actually getting it all apart .
