    A radiator about the size I needed, popped up for sale on the other side of the state so, I had to go get it. I made up a quick bracket and, to make RaceStatus happy, I didn't paint it black. Rather, it got painted body color. I still need to make up something to fully secure the bottom of the radiator but, that can be done tomorrow.

    It is tempting to cut out the bracket and make it hollow in the middle. It would be more for looks than anything since, it already weighs nothing. Also, I need to get a bolt that what I had laying around.

    So, my dad found some pictures of my first car/first Lincoln and scanned them tonight.

    Might as well toss out Lincoln #2, it shined up well back in my detailing days.

    I recieved a pair of Fox length control arms and a bumpsteer kit from Team Z earlier this week and, Racestatus motivated me to go install them, the day the came in.

    Yesterday, I picked up a TH400 for the car. I just need to order the JW bell for it before I stuff it into the car.

    Today I got the factory bell housing off and the new JW Ultra Bell on. I am glad it's over because that was a slightly scary and nerve racking thing to do.

    The block is ready to go back to the shop, to get its guts re-inserted. I am hoping that this thing makes noise this summer. If that happens, I'll be happy and can use that motivation to get this car wrapped up to some degree this year.

    Since the motor is at the shop, I decided to see if I could fix my mistake of sending the hood through the garage's window (look back in this thread for that). I realized that there was no way to even try to fix the hood, with the structure attached to the skin so, that came off. Let me tell you, the hood is still waay to heavy to like. If I can get this skin straight enough to fill with mud and smooth out for a mold, I'll be happy.

    I started the process of slowly easing myself in to wiring the car. I got the switch panel hung and, that harness terminated.

    I also got to pick up the motor today after work. All I can say is, if you want it done and don't want to wait, do it yourself. Trying to get the car out of the car, with out a hoist was sketchy and a work out. It required some 2x4s to park the car on, a 4lb mini sledge, some muscle and a lot of luck.

    Also, some how, after I got the motor, I wound up with some wheels. That isnt how this is supposed to work. The original thought was, they're from a VW or something so, I'll make a table out of them. Whelp, they are the correct bolt patter for the Lincoln so, it is tempting to find a matching front and run them as the Sunday drive wheels. I'll shop around for tires, I have a feeling 19" tires will convince me that a tbale is their fate. I'd take the gold spray paint off of the rears though...It's already coming off with just a garden hose.
