Easter Weekend

Expect a post from Greg soon regarding our first engine fire up!

In the meantime, some work got done on the actual car. Stripping began, pictures speak for themselves.



We also got some progress done on prepping the old engine bay for removal of its contents:

Got all of the ancillaries out of the way, all that is left is to drain the oils and undo the mounts.

Now for the "bad" news, or the downside on free cars. We knew the metro was somewhat of a rust bucket, now we know exactly how much of a rust bucket it is. Someone patched up the front shock towers with fibreglass, both rockers are completely gone, only the door sills remain. The driver's side floor is rotten and there are some spots near the hatch. Again, pictures will speak for themselves. I don't anticipate anything to be difficult to fix, just a bit more time consuming. I think we can recycle some of the sheet metal off the donor car to patch things up!
