  2. How do you all document your work when restoring / working on your cars? Just taking notes and photos? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  3. Got an engine hoist on CL for $75, fold up, so I think I can store it. Gonna pull it out from the top along with the transmission memorial day weekend I think. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

  6. Thanks for all the help! Makes sense now! Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  7. This is what I found on the web.
  8. Looking for info a out my vin 1663372. The title is a bit wonky haha. It says the car is a 1969 but I think according to the vin, it's actually a 1968. The original color is suppose to be Manila, that's what it says on the vin plate in the engine bay. The title also says the car is a 2022D... not sure what that's about Did some googling and most of the Manila cars I found were 68s. Why was it only available this year?
  9. Yup! Looking to get a car dolly or rotisserie Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  10. The title says the car is a 2022D... Haha not sure what that's about... will need get the car registered in California (currently Washington registered and with Washington plates Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  11. purchased this off ebay earlier this week got it towed back to the house. it has a decent amount of rust, structurally it looks ok, but wont know until I start lift it up a bit more and then start ripping things out.
  12. Dang... that looks super satisfying Haha. I might want to try that.... how long did it take you to do? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  13. I see. So how did you prevent the engine from dropping to the floor? Like how did you lower it to the floor after unbolting everything Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  14. Before my question, heres some context. Just purchased my 2nd 2002. The 1st one was in pretty good shape so didnt need to do any intense work on it. But the new one I got I plan on doing a bare metal restoration on. Its my first time doing this but heres my plan. 1) rip out interior 2) take out whatever I can in the engine bay. 3) drop front subframe / engine / transmission 4) drop the rear subframe Is this a good plan? (Not the real question) I've done interior ripping (not the dash though) I've helped with a subframe removal and restoration. I haven't done any engine removal / transmission / front subframe work. I've been reading and it seems like its simpler to drop all of that from the car all at once. The problem is I dont have an engine hoist and I'm not sure if I can store an engine hoise along with all of the parts coming off the car. So heres the question! Would using and engine support bar like this: https://www.harborfreight.com/1000-lb-capacity-engine-support-bar-96524.html?utm_referrer=direct%2Fnot provided Work something like that work in lowering the engine and subframe? I'll probs take as many things off before dropping. Like the strut towers. Also any tips for doing a bare metal resto? Anything I should be looking out for?
