    Cool Beans ! Do the entire motor in that stuff and no more flashlights needed.

    Chris has been busy moving things along and well he sends me pictures to my phone document progress but I have been lazy with the updates on the thread. Since 95% of the bolt-on parts have been purchased from other members, most of the work has either been cleaning things up or giving it a personal touch. Thankfully Chris is willing to make improvements where needed or when I make a wild suggestion doing it for me.

    One of the main suggestions was making the snout of the blower look nicer. The scratches in the snout really bothered me. I feel it's the focal point and it stood out to me. I told him down the road I would probably repaint it or purchase a polished one. Before I could finish my thought he sent me picture of the snout removed and him starting the process of polishing it.

    Here are a few pictures he has sent, I will try to update it as he goes.

    Tim, you'll have a hard time to find the correct drive snout to fit the blower. You'll be better off sending the existing drive snout out for polishing. Don't ever remove the bolts holding the front case cover on either. Any questions about the blower let me know as this was mine at one time. Those marks are from the hoses I had for the catch can system that it had. The gun drilled pulley vent bolt option I had PSE do never worked right, and I purchased the correct Kenne Bell baffled catch can for it.

    I recall Dave Clark telling me it was your AR before he picked it up. Good to know the history! Also not sure what browser you're using but Chris fully polished the snout so it's good to go now.

    The glow in the dark paint... It needs to be charged up with light right? Do you have a clear hood?

    Little update - spent the weekend in Northern VA helping Chris prep and paint the engine bay. Also thanks to Sherman Vining and Chuck Fulmer for remove harnesses and helping tape things off and moving the project along!

    Just like any project seems like this one has been a constant 1 step forward then 2 steps back...I actually believe after this round of hiccups it should be smooth sailing for reassembly. After noticing some of the freeze plugs weeping, it was decided it would be best while at this point to replace all the freeze plugs, upgrade to the 6qt mustang oil pan and paint the engine bay. Also while traveling up I grabbed some new to me suspension parts - New Koni's all around and actual lowering springs (cars been riding cut factory springs for a few years). I bring up the suspension parts for the fact of explaining why the factory shocks weren't taped off - it's all being replaced.

    Here's some pictures...first time I had seen the car in almost 2 years so it was pretty exciting for me. Forgot how good the car looks even in 100 pieces.
