Made a bit more progress with the old engine, and was able to get #4 out, so now just #3 remains stubborn! I'm soaking it again and hopefully it'll be out soon. I'm almost done with my truck distraction (it needed new brakes and struts as well) so I'll be making more conquest progress in no time! I did manage to get the front suspension off and start cleaning up my transmission last night though, and I think I may be able to reuse the transmission from my blue car!

Keep up the good work.  Paint the area under the brake reservoir.  You need to replace the hoses leading down to the master cylinder.  Also paint that frame rail.

Yeah this car had a pretty major leak from the brake booster/master cylinder that made short work of that paint. There is also a small rust spot on the wheel well on the front driver's side that will need to be addressed. I am considering painting the entire engine bay black, but do you know of anything that I may be able to somewhat color match?

I bought my matching paint at paint scratch.com.  I have that factory hose if you need it.

Great progress. Really starting to like the Atlantic color more and more.

I'm hoping to get a paint correction on it once she's running! I've decided to try to get my parts car's engine running to get her moving in the short term while I build a stronger G54b on the side. If this rain in the Atlanta area ever stops, I can finally start working on that car to strip out the interior parts I need and see about getting that engine running (It does turn with the starter, I think it's a fuel issue). Hopefully it'll work out!
