That chain is used to put the new engine in.   We'll see his new insertion of his enginei in a few weeks.

Well, No S#@T Sherlock!  I just had to say an old phrase I haven't used in about 40 years.  I just had to wait for an appropriate time I guess.  LOL!   ;D

Give us a break.

The engine compartment and radiator support black paint is too glossy. Outside of that, it's easier to make a clean car dirty than a dirty car clean.

I dread the annual engine compartment cleaning.  Trust me, what Jim said is very true.  I don't take the engine out, but the compartment cleaning would be much easier if I did.  I can't wash my 03 Mach 1 engine compartment for fear of burning/shorting out one or more coils, but I wash the shit out of the 289.  I use a degreaser followed by a good brushing of Dawn dish soap/water mixture then a pressure sprayer.  It's work, but the old 289 stays clean for most of the year.

Well that is one of the reasons why i chose this paint, its super easy to clean. Dust and dirt won't stick to it. It just wipes off with a dry rag, as for the cleaning of the motor and stuff, i am already preparing for that as that is as much work as restoring the car haha.

Not quite as much work, but if given a yearly cleaning it is much easier than waiting until it looks like the original post picture of your engine bay.  The black color you chose may be a tad too slick looking, but if it pleases you, then why not?  I'm still waiting for a Utube of that engine running.   ;D

Got all new steering and front suspension parts. All are stock replacement except for the 600# 1" lowering coil springs. I will be installing all of this tomorrow.

It might get in the way of the taillights, but if you can make it work, paint it pink.   ;D

Sorry I haven't updated the thread in such a long time, not much has been done to the car until this week. The bodywork is finally finished and it is finally primered and drying. Should be painted by the end of next week, and then it gets re-assembled. Here are some pics of the progress, I will be updating more often now that the car is finally moving forward again.
