Got the old exhaust pipe out and down. Came out no problem with out any grinding or cutting. New pipe will be 2 1/4 inch thick with no cat or resonator. Found some M Performance muffler tips to finish it off nicely. Time to head down to Lenny's muffler in Staten Island! Just got the fiber glass rear bumper from I.E. Test fitting begins

Carpet install, sound deading, engine running, things are going in a good direction. Only a few things to get down before I can go on a test ride. Throttle cable and exhausted need to be fitted...
It feels like I hit a road block, and things have stalled, waiting on parts to come in like the new fuel pump and sending unit. It has really put everything in slow mo... With the wiring being possible the easiest thing to do it's kinda the hardest! C101 connector also came in but I don't want to use any of the old wiring, it just looks to be in bad shape.
The M42 found its new home. Fitting in the shell like a glove. Also did some white gauge overlays with red needles
Well the old M10 is out, waiting on the side is the M42... Everything came out with ease, I wish all car were this easy to work on. Just like clayW said this is the best way and quite frankly the easiest way to do the swap even if you have an engine hoist!!!
Thanks to Erik the seller, the car came with a pretty good line up of after market parts. Fender flares, front bumper, ansa exhaust, momo steering wheel and shift knob, Just to name a few. But now the hard part comes with finishing were he left off. First thing was to get my hands on an engine & trans, which I did
Starting out with a fairly nice car, but with some room for improvement! Mostly everything will be pulled starting with the interior, to the engine & Trans. Refresh & Rebuild
