It Couldn't All Go Right

After a fairly painless subframe removal from the 1600 and an uncomplicated, single afternoon headliner install, we were destined to screw something up.

Embarrassing adversity, thy name is engine and subframe removal.

It only took us six hours or so to remove the drivetrain and front subframe from the `76 with all the efficiency of four monkeys doing Chinese. Seriously, don't try this at home.

After a little blessing from the pastor of the Church of Dan, we finally got it done.

Now, time for a little cleanup and a few new gaskets before it goes into the 1600. Jay and I also made some headway on the 1600's engine bay, which has now been stripped and painted.
