    Ok, the job is done.

    First, I want to say Thank You to John, Brandon, and Derek for coming out for this job. There's no way I could have managed this on my own.

    There were very few tense moments during the separation. One such instance was the right rear body bolt (on the cross brace) decided to seize up during removal, prompting us to drill out the top a bit. Luckily, the head snapped off after some more "coaxing".

    Having a couple of extra hands available to rock the body front or back was a great help. We only missed one connection during prep: the vacuum line for the brake booster. Once that was cut, it was smooth sailing... or lifting, as it were.

    My niece, Sarah, came over with her awesome camera and shot more than 200 pics of the process. Instead of posting them here (I don't have all day), i put them up on photobucket for everyone to see. They are all extremely high res, so those on dial-up shouldn't even try to look at them.

    Enjoy!

    Well, not entirely. I have insulated my garage door, which is something that everyone should do, especially if you do any work in your garage. Think about it... You have a giant metal radiator absorbing and transferring the sun's heat directly into your garage. Insulating it cuts the heat transfer down tremendously.

    I do have plans to put A/C out there, but that isn't in the budget quite yet. All I do at the moment is open up the interior door and put a fan in the doorway to blow some A/C out into the garage. It's a low tech solution, but it works!
