Today I:
a) removed the radiator
b) removed the engine and tranny
c) saw just how bad my frame is trashed (gasp its ugly <shivers>)
d) attached a towing bar to my front bumper (its history anyways, so why not)
e) got the car into my driveway (no easy feat cause its a 2' incline at the curb and into the garage.
f) talked to a friend who is hooking me up with a friend of his that owns a tranny shop ( $200 all parts and labor to rebuild my c4 if nothing Major is damaged) **doesnt include torque converter**
g) got the hood and some other peices removed
h) got my engine onto a stand at my friends house (ford mechanic for 25+ years till he hurt his back
i) wrote this long post detailing my accomplishments
-and all this before 1500hrs local.

-Dissassembly begins in earnest tomorrow!

Are you going to be replacing the frame rails?

Congrats! Wish I got as much mustanging done yesterday. I had a full day, though....I did an hours spinning class (exhausting), then took my 2 sons to the park, later taught my 5 year old son to ride his bike sans training wheels (more exercise), then hung a porch swing (took some fabbing) in the afternoon.
Went out to a great dinner with my wife, best friend and his girlfriend. Shot a few games of pool afterwards, for the first time in a while. What a great, although non-mustang, day! I was beat !
Today I hope to get out to see a possible next project - a 66 coupe. Owner wants too much, as usual.. We'll see.....Dickson

yes, so far frame work is consisting of: floorpans (both sides), Floor to Firewall extensions, frame rails (both sides)
rear frame extensions, trunk crossmember, both torque boxes and of course my inner rockers, we must not forget that battery tray either and a few small patches.

Sounds like you've got your work cut out for you. I got no Mustanging done yesterday, and probably wont today. Had to work on the boat all day yesterday (blasted water pump). Taking the boat out for it's maiden voyage (of the year) today. We're moving her to a new marine next weekend, so got to check her out.

On my '67 Coupe, I had to do both floor pans, floor to firewall (toeboard), and torque boxes. While I had the Seat risers out I shortened them. Battery apron patch, and a patch in the trucnk. Still got to put on both qtr's and a tail light panel. Waiting for funds att.
