Unfortunately, I don't think my wife would go for that... LOL.

I'd have to bring her and the boy with me, and she'd be "bored" and complain the whole time, thus ruining what could otherwise be a great build day.

Obviously, you haven't met my wife... that might work on my Son, for awhile. Wife, she "hates" classical music... by "hate" I mean: She's just not willing to actually listen to it, but doesn't know that I play it occasionally while she's sleeping to "tune" her into it.

She's also heard it in public and doesn't make snide comments about it anymore.

I'll talk to her at some point in the future, though, and see if there will be any chance of a day or two that I can come around and see if we can get some stuff done.

I'm sure you're lucky to have her, despite her dislike of classical!

Picture time!

Gonna begin work after lunch. I imagine it'll be a little boring at first since it'll just be stripping the car down, but I've realized I don't have anything to hold the car up with so that might be a bit of a pain.

Thoughts on what jack stands I can go buy before I start that are high quality but won't completely destroy my wallet?

Almost ready to drop the engine, just need to get the axles out, so it's time to take a break and head to the store for an axle nut socket and some energy food. I'll probably take out the dash before dropping the engine though so I can pull the wiring out of the way since it's all tangled up.

When I get home I'll take a little break and post pictures of the job thus far. The only real problem has been dropping a fender on my head and scratching it a little.

I think jackstands are jackstands. You're not even remotely close to approaching the weight capacity, so I couldn't even really cite safety as a factor.

I use the Harbor Freight ones and they work fine. Don't forget to block the tires if you're going to be pushing and pulling. I usually leave the jack under there as a backup if it can be done without it getting in the way.

I ended up getting the middle of the road jackstands, thinking they wouldn't be able to get the car high enough, when in fact the car is so damn low to the ground it was difficult to get them under on the lowest setting.

I'm not too worried about them, but once upon a time one buckled and killed one of my dad's friends (or something to that effect), so I've always been a little wary of them.

I should've got some at harbor freight considering how much I love the jack I got from them, but o well, hindsight and all that business

Just got home with my axle nut socket, gonna take a break and eat some food before I go rip the interior out of the car.
