I sprayed the bottom and sides of the frame with the finish chassis black paint yesterday. Since I didn't have a rotissorie I'll paint the top side another day. That day being today, you can see the frame in it's finish skin. The frame has about three coats of finish paint. Spent the remaining part of the day detailing all the misc. parts that get reassembled with the front and rear suspension parts.
The trans shop threw me a curve ball yesterday. His performance rebuild went up about 45% over my previous expectations. I'll being looking at alternate transmission shops before I send it out.
