    measure twice, drop engine in once young grasshoppa. although when I was building my engine for my 86, I had to put it in the car a couple times because I didnt have room to put the engine anywhere lol.

    Thanks for the replies. I am going to have the car in the air on my hoist, pull the stock 81 K-member and suspension, then I will have the 01 motor,trans, K-member and suspension underneath, and drop the car on it. I will already have the brakelines and hydroboost in. That will hopefully be this weekend. I am not worried about scratching the paint....besides, I used Nason's single stage, which is hard as a rock, it is one step under POR-15 as far as toughness....oh and sanding POR, with 320 grit....laughed at me...I used 150 grit....still laughed!! That stuff is no joke. My gun is nothing two special, I have had it for years....it is a Devil Bliss..it wasn't no 600+ gun, it was maybe 150-200. I didn't want to take a chance ruining it with the POR-15,so the gun I sprayed with, was a $9.99 from Harbor Freight....I tell you what, that thing worked GREAT.....

    Wednesday: Putting new timing chain cover, and ALL gaskets on 4.6L motor. The clutch feels and sounds new, so I am not even gonna check it.

    Thursday: Pull out 4.6L engine and trans, rear axle and all brake and gas lines and gas tank.

    Friday: Time with the GIRLFRIEND

    Saturday and Sunday: Girlfriend works at nursing home all weekend 90 miles from here!!!!!! So gues what!!!!! Nothing but two 12-14 hour days for me. I will have to get creatvie with the gas tank mounting. The 81 bolts up a lot different than the 87-93, let alone the 99+.

    I will get some bumper smashing pics up soon, maybe in a new thread. I will start new threads for every update guys how is that?? They will all be called "81 Hack Job" I, II, III IV, V.....etc...... I couldn't do it Sunday, because I had to paint, then get out on my boat to PARTY IT UP ON THE WATER!!!!!!
