Ugh, this was certainly the weekend for some messy work.

Now that the engine is about ready to come together I decided it was finally time to start prepping the engine compartment.

It was a big reminder of what an oily and dirty mess everything was before this whole project got started.

I spent a good chuck of saturday removing all the stuff like the A/C compresor, condensor, lines, relay box, oil breather and some trim in the tail that blocked off the grill slats that were not directly above the old intercooler and condensor.

Oh yeah, there were also all the old dry rotted rubber engine tin gaskets and the foam that was still hanging around from the insulation pad and pass through area for the plumbing and electrical stuff that needed to be removed too.

I still have a lot of cleaning and painting work to do, but at least all the big chunks are gone.

As usual I have pics of the progress . . .

It didn't take long for debris to build up under my work area.

A lot of oil grime to go around too.


And my pile of stuff I won't be using again.
