              would this be a good choice of bolt to use to lift the engine out? from the starter hole on the trans

                  So, in the most riciculous way possible, 2 8mm bolts in the valley of the hemi. That was sketchy for sure. But it worked.

                  Well 6 men feeling no pain, helped drag out the tamper,so hopefully I can get this done next week if it doesnt rain.
                  Have to power wash one more time to get the rest of white plaster off, and finish edging. Looks wavey in picks for some reason, maybe the lighting.
                  It's pretty flat though. 20211002_164446.jpg

                    Went to one local to me a few weeks ago, Pioneer Days. They have hundreds of hit and miss engines, hundreds of tractors, everything from saloon to church, large swap meet, rock crushers to saw mill, etc. a three day event. Oh, and cars and trucks, bring an exhibit and show is free, one of my favorite events

                      Went to local car show today, a first annual fall classic put on by our local Sheriff. All cash went to charity. It was a great turn out for a first time event. Sheriff ended up putting me to work I parked cars all day for the alley event. You make a 25 dollar donation and you drove down alley in between all the cars, you stop at the DJ tent and hand him the bio on your car and he reads it off to the crowd. It was a good time. The DJ hosts a TV show on hot rods and is a true car guy so he has a lot of knowledge and ad libbed non stop. I put on my sheet I double dog dare ya to say Mopar or No Car! Since he is a pretty good guy he did but then confiscated my card thereby rendering me “out” of contention. Hah great time! This little beauty was there as well.

                          Smoked chicken thighs. Half are mango magic and half sweet heat rub. Oh and fresh green beans wrapped in bacon.

                                      after the engine got pulled at 1:00, I spent the rest of the day scraping the 3/4 INCHES of grease, mud, dirt, oil, you name it off the k frame. Then I started paint prep with a sanding block to knock the rust and paint off. Tomorrow is going to be pressure washing and masking everything off to get ready to be painted. the underside of the hood and the entire engine bay will either be gloss black or flat white. (to make it pop:D)

                                          Never saw that done...
                                          Mopars are same color as the body.
                                          But it's your's. Black is fine. I'm sure it will be a very nice Nova when it's done. :poke::D

                                            the engine bay. there is no way in hell I am painting the car. Its perfect the way it is. When you close the hood, it will look the same.
