welp slow progress but something at least.
I got back from my trip expecting my parts to be done from powder coating but I had a bunch of voicemails saying he forgot to write down the color I wanted.
So I got the transmission down and out. dropped it on my stomach which was fun.
the LCA chassis bolts are giving me some trouble cuz I don't have enough space to run a long breaker bar and my electric impact just doesn't have enough oomph to break them.
After I get those off the whole front subframe assembly will come down.
Oh, i also removed the evaporator from behind the dash. No AC for me!
