Did the insert require any trimming? Came out pretty good if it didn't.

Worth every penny then. I just looked at mine and I'm getting a bit of sag.

I like how the back bumper turned out. Mine has that dang puff up spot that drives me crazy. What product did you go with again ?

I know I have not been keeping the updates regular for everyone but I have a ton going on right now.

I want to top off the transmission and take the car out for the first trip up the street and back but I have a pretty serious oil pan leak.. I should have known better than to use the cheap-o rubber gasket that came with the oil pan. Its leaking in the rear corner above the starter.
The plan is to use a cradle and drop the K member so that I can remove the oil pan, while its out I will weld in a 10AN bung for the oil return, this will allow me to use the valve cover as a vent again.

If I dont fix it now the underside of the car will be covered in oil... I cant that now can I?

Maybe that will add a degree of rust prevention to the exhaust tubing that you now have a linear mile of running under the car.:shrug:

Steve, I have the "across the fender" deal to hold the engine if you need it.
I've used the HF version of that more than once to drop the pan on my 93, comes in handy.
Upper intake off, motor mounts unbolted, jack up the engine as high as it will go, attach HF cross bar,
begin swearing a lot while wrestling the pan out..lol.

I dont want to fight it with the deep pan, I am just going to drop the K member out of the way

Thanks but I have one, hopefully get this done this weekend sometime.. i wanna drive my car.

We also need to setup a time for me to come over and get yours running
No worries. I still haven't run my vacuum line yet. But scheduling would probably help...lol. I'll give you a ring tomorrow.
