Honestly I'm more surprised at the way that jack stand looks... I expect it for the stuff coming off the car but I didn't know the jack stands came with it.
Lol!!! I actually keep these stands n a building to use on rust bombs like this one. Dont want my nice ones getting rust rain.

Arguably, the best jack-stand I have discovered so far:

This car was probably one of those you could
Throw a few things at and be on the road.
Oh Well…

I'm surprised you didn't pull the motor.
Just doing what I can on the car.
Working on it for a couple weeks then back in the corner with it. Motor amd trans are ready to come out but then Id just have to find somewhere to stick them.

Well I have officially started my 27th smoothed engine bay.
Panels all tacked in and permanently in place. Everything behind them is clean and coated in 5 coats of epoxy primer. Front bumper out of the way. Fenders next. All will get body work
While off the car.

27 huh?….I was done and said never again after 1.

Its really a giant pain in the ass to go through all of that only to have 10-20% of that work visible after the engine‘s back in the car.
