      I'd say just pull the engine man. You're 90% of the way there as is, and has been said, it only takes another hours worth of work.

      It's not worth it at this point. If I pull the motor then I'm doing a winter's worth of shaving which I don't have time for right now. Today she was supposed to get painted but my painter couldn't get to my house due to the flood

      Yes and no. It's not a ton of money if you just do deletes, wire tucks, and hole filling. It gets pricey when you want to make a ton of things nice and shiny with either chrome or polishing.

      Thank you as well bro

      Hooters was fun on the way home. We ended up going all out and got wings, burgers and the huge mug beer lol. Oh and next time I go to PA, I'm bringing a cooler full of coffee...needless to say Jersey or PA Dunkin Donuts suck at making coffee haha. They didn't know what a med ice xtra xtra was

      But yea, as for the car the bay and parts are all sprayed and I'm starting the re-build in a couple of hours. Chris should be over to take some pics so later on tonight most likely they'll be on here

      and disconnect that oil line to your VF mount! the oil will eat the urethane.

      Thanks doc, we just covered everything up with blankets and did a TON of taping off to prevent over spray. Gotta remember that this started off as a power steering relocate and turned into a semi-full bay shave lol the way it sits right now is only for this season so come winter time everything will be re-done and smoothed/ filled 100%
