      A few pics from today. Cooling system has been overhauled, time to do a fuel system overhaul I think. Regulator has been acting up (had the same issue with the Vic too, $8 part and 30 minutes to fix)...

      Yep! Embarrased to say that I haven't touched her in quite a few months, but she's peacefully hibernating in my backyard (which didn't flood!) until I got the cash to do up the intake, fuel, and...

      Not gonna lie, it was hard for me to just sell it for scrap instead of putting my spare 5.0 long-block into it. Unfortunately, a swap like that is just too much to be worthwhile. But it was tempting....

      New springs & shocks, probably a little stiffer setup front & rear, and likely adding a steering stabilizer.

      So this Explorer was wrecked in February of 2015. We got it back, threw $57 in steering/suspension parts at it, a full-size spare tire, and a $30 pick-a-part fender... and kept driving it until the...

      We got around to throwing some money at this thing. New engine (color scheme not my choice...), transmission, transfer case, driveshafts, fuel pump, exhaust, and maybe front and rear lockers.

      Got the powertrain in there, and the car runs. Was a fuel system and some cooling plumbing away from getting her driving, but I ended up finding an LS1 intake w/ ZL1 injectors on the cheap AND found...

      The day is drawing near, friends. Not a whole lot left to do. Man, I am going to lose my freakin' mind when I finally hear her run.

      Unfortunately, I probably won't hear her run until after I get...

      They still do, but not until after the rest of the car has caught up with the build. There's still brakes, suspension, interior, rear end, etc that all need to be addressed before I worry about more...
