yes, i made great progress. i got the garage cleaned up in preparation of housing the 7.3/zf5. i also got the donor truck parked in place to have its guts ripped out of it.....AND i got the fritts' hoist and welder in the garage ready to roll....shew, will all that accomplished i think i deserve a break. you know how us union guys work, can't do too much too fast!

i do have some loose ends to tighten up mon morning on this side job, then i will really get into it. i plan to pull the grill, radiator, and core support out mon afternoon to make it easier to pull the motor/trans/tc in one assembly. so wed and fri of this week should see some serious progress.
