THE 360 HAS STARTED




Ran in to a few little issues while pulling the fenders.

One of the braces was pulled through.



One of the fender to tub bolts spun so I ended up cutting it off.



Other than that one fender has a little tear on its lip.



I would also like to thank AMC for the great paint job. I love how they install the fenders before they paint the tub so the seam stays unpainted.



I have a full day tomorrow to get the engine, tranny, and tcase out.

A good day of progress. Put about 5.5 hours in. Got the wiring harnesses out the engine bay, the engine out, the tranny, tcase, exhaust pipes, & drive shafts.







Found a few things that kind of pissed me off. First off all the boots I installed a year and 1/2 ago when I rebuilt the tranny have already cracked / rotted.





Cheap crap... Speaking of cheap crap also found this.



The throwout bearing went bad after 1.5 years as well. Surprised I did not hear it making any noises... It still engaged / disengaged fine however it wore a nice big grove in the tranny nose cone. Guess I will be replacing that as well.

Ordered a few rattle cans of Garnet Metallic 3C, primer, and clear coat from AutomotiveTouchup.com last night. Going to rattle can the firewall and inner fenders. The MAW's had me thinking I just should go ahead and pull the windshield & hood, do all the body work and paint it when its apart BUT... thankfully my mind put a stop to that thinking.

So whats next... First off I am going to clean up the front of the frame and firewall and get that all painted up. Jenn works this weekend but I should find time to at least do that.

Stay tuned...

The tub was rusted enough that I was able to get the pas side rocker off with just my hands and the drivers side came 1/2 off that way. I left some big rips in the bottom of the tub when doing so, whoops!! ;-)


I pm'd ya about these. Didn't need to hear that! (sarcasm there!) Still interested, at your leisure.
