cozwurth The lift is bolted and torqued down. The posts even stayed plumb, which is a surprising bonus. The runways are even level in both directions. Another bonus. Cables are slack because the hydraulics think the lift is on the ground. I still have to run temporary power to it and get some hydraulic fluid so I can get the cables adjusted. Making progress...

There was none involved in cleaning the gutter, mashing that flashing back down, then doing some fixing to the gutter from out front. Not that there wasn't the opportunity with my slipshoddy workmanship and sidways photo shoot.



Anyhow, got that did. Ladder didn't kill me, leastwise today. Now I wonder if it works for the attic.

idrivejunk Building suspense, eh Pugsy? Got it. Doesn't help.

When she is in the shop area, I would be calling her Dolly already.

Since the chassis got a dab of mention, I'd like to jam my foot in the door and blurt:

Have you considered how little work it would take at this stage, to go subframe(s)?

That one has burned in my mind.

It is good to see you excited about the car again.

I don't see any reason why you couldn't adopt the mindset of:

"I will weld this on as best I know how, then decide if I messed up because I can fix anything that goes wrong and don't normally have problems. Plus I am the decider of what is finished."

Boldly go.

123pugsy Welding done with a bit of clean up. Seam sealer should hide the ugly.


Got to go out and weld around the wiper bungs next.... ....this could warp the cowl to heck.

Why people cut off trees at that height and then just leave the stump is beyond me, but I have been accused of being an overachiever...
Yep, rented a BIG Hilti drill. I'll bet it weighed 25-30 pounds by itself. Drilled the holes like a hot knife through butter. Time for a little you-tube university to see about that grout stuff. Big box store only had 3 bags, and all were busted. They gave me one bag half off, so I'm happy with that. Ended up spending the late afternoon helping a friend fix the rear hatch on their Acra MDX. She backed into their camper, busting the rear glass and caving in the hatch. They went to the junk yard and ended up with a replacement that is the same color as their car, so no painting required. And yes, we gave her grief over not using the backup camera.

X pipe install

Things to know
Paper work said hour, reality 3. proly an hour if done once before. Me, 1 hour wrenching 2 hour familiarization course

Got lucky cause I notice the X pipe has a top side and bottom side, before the bolts right on happened.

5.5" rear cut is exact, space is tight, jocking the tail pipe into the rear of the X pipe. Not impossible just be prepared, for it to fight you some.

Use a torque wrench, makes a big difference in the way the clamps draw everything together.

Last: Advisable that it be done on a lift, I doubt this install is possible laying on ones back under the Mustang.

my old bondo light threw some red flags in our internal audit. I just bought another one on Amazon and surprised with how good it is for amazon

This was my last job of the week. On Thursday we watched a corporate video saying they were laying off 25% of the people, no more 401k matching, and no more overtime. So I did the right thing.... I took 2 weeks PTO starting Monday:
Kids are out of school til May a co worker is out with upper respiratory issues, a neighbor across the street is having upper respiratory issues, and although I have no fear of Covid-19, I have children. it was a relief to have my pto request accepted on such short notice. so it's homebound and hope I still have a job to come back to.
