Re: Project "GuldenRod" 72 Gran Torino Wagon
Got bell housing blasted clean
My redneck 4 post lift,LOL
Darn so close but yet so far. I removed exhaust X-pipe,mufflers,headers,driveshaft,starter,torque converter nuts,shifter and kick down linkage,speedo cable.all but 2 bolts on the bell housing and the F-ing cage nut on tranny cross-member is spinning and can't get the cross-member out of the way to yank the trans out. Sucks as i'm gonna have to cut one of my 7/8 wrenches to stick inside frame to get that bolt out of the frame
Gonna blast and paint driveshaft while it's out and might yank the rear axle out to blast and paint as i'm installing my Spohn Performance upper and lower control arms since I will be driving it and also want to blast and paint the coil springs as the rest of the chassis has been detailed with paint and looks good still. Also going to Blast and Ceramic coat my Hooker headers as the cheap paint they used all burnt off but I knew when I bought them that would happen so I ordered the ceramic paint and copper header gaskets which I have not used knowing the headers would come off again.
Here is my new control arms
