Now that the engine is finishing up, I've started on the engine bay. Couple of pics here. I'll post them over to my more power page http://www.blueriver.net/~finite/mopower.htm this weekend. For now here's a couple to show you how out of control this project is becoming.

My car as of last Saturday.

I tried out my newly arrived spot weld cutter tonight. This is the rear fender brace after removal. The big hole was bondoed by PO. Nice repair eh?

New vs Old.

This is pretty grim, but so was the engine until a couple of weeks ago. Just mo work and mo money.

I know all too well what that feeling is like. You take something off to fix something else, and in no time you're cutting the whole inner fender out. Only way to cure that feeling is to do it, do it right and then at some point down the road you say "glad I did that".

Man, this is a cheap post for me /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

LOOKS GREAT. I must ask where did you get the gloss black oil filters??? (just kidding).
Also what is the resolution of your digital camera. I'm thinking of getting one, and your pictures look nice. Don't want to spend to much, but don't want bad pictures.

I've got a Konica that is capable of unbelievable resolution. Thing is I never use the max, because the pictures are too big. The one thing I would look for if I were you (THAT I DON'T HAVE) is optical zoom. Even with max resolution I can't get a good picture of a small detail. Digital zoom is pretty worthless. A 4x optical zoom would be VERY nice.

the kodak series dc 280 is pretty nice. 2.2 megapixels. Even better if you have photoshop, then you can resize your photo ad keep the great resolution. Most cameras come with a crappy photoedit program that is workable for simple resisizing. But in Photoshop I can restore my Stang with 10 clicks;)
ARGH.... I have a degree and Art and want to restore my mustang. :p will trade art/digital advice for advice on fixing my 1968 coupe from S.C. (why couldn't my parents have had me in California where there's no rust?)
