So yesterday was actually the first day of taking the car apart. After a trip to Harbor Freight for jack stands and latex gloves, I got to work. I put the car up on the stands,
disconnected battery and the ignition coil,
removed the splash guard from underneath the front bumper,
took off the radiator fan,
and drained all the radiator fluid.
I filled up two 1 gallon cartons with the green car-juice. So far it's all been prep for the engine pull. Next I want to remove the exhaust system, because it looks like that will free up a lot more space in the engine compartment.
