    Great job! My thoughts on the overhaulin crew is that they have a seven day deadline and are usually very tired and in a hurry when they are hooking up the fuel, radiator, etc. lines and doing the wiring so they are bound to not get it right the first time. You took your time and probably double checked everything before turning the key.

    about my pictures my daughter will help me post this weekend i'm not computer savvy i have a hard time writing this but i hope i have some pictures that help someone hole cutting method of standing the car on stands .i raised it to 30 inches off the ground from the bottom of the fenders and still had to raise the body some more by bolting a short secton of chain to each strut tower and chain hoisted the body up even higher and rolled the whole assembly out on a furniture dolly.had two engine stands for swapping ls1 to ls6 . helms manuals,and alot of head scratching had the motor in the garage hid from the old lady for eight months and waited for the right time when the wife said why not skip the bullcrap and just get a gmmp motor and i said it just so happens i have one right here. she got over it bless her the 6spd came about when a cobalt ss cleaned my clock from a 100mph punch! we'll see now more to come soon about sunday or monday for pics the day after easter i guess i'll put them here under general help because it covers alot of things . later..
