Planning today(4/20/14 update): motor tear down begins as well as destruction evaluation.

Going to get the carbon build up removal brush tomorrow. With hopes of getting it cleaned up by mid week.

Update (4/21/2014)
Motor is torn down to where it needs to be, really doesnt look to bad for having 180 k on it. a little dirty.








Also started detailing interior/exterior: Previous owner liked taking his dog with him mountain biking so the car is caked in dirt and dog hair.

Don't have the biggest update with news as to whether or not the block is within tolerance. But here are some progress pictures.

Can you run this?


head bolts cleaned up.



The remaining pieces of the heads that need to be cleaned up that cant go into the vat.
