This weekend I went back to the parents place and got some work done on the car. A lot was going on but I was able to get that crank pulley spacer thing figured out and that pulley torqued on.

I am using a ford thunderbird fuel pump that also has a vacuum pump on there. I installed hose barbs into the ports using some thread sealant that is good for gasoline.

Installed the radiator, upper and lower hoses, fan, and generator belt.

I spray bombed the body in hopes of getting a paintless dent repair guy out there to remove some dings before we paint in October (hopefully).

It has been some time but I have been able to continue to pluck away at the car. We werent able to get the paintless dent repair guy in, but we were able to finish sanding the car and get the car to a body shop to get the body smoothed out and primed. The body came out very well.

This past weekend I had a bunch of help from family, friends and my father in-law to get the car painted. It came out very well!
