Our first step was removing the engine. This allowed us to tear it down to the bare block and determine what work needed to be done. It also freed up the engine bay for stripping and body work. This writeup walks you step-by-step through the process we used to remove the engine from the car, along with pictures detailing every step.

Obviously, it's important to have a clean, organized workspace. Our work area is a typical home garage with lots of area and storage space. The garage is a seperate building that measures 20' by 30'. It's heated and well stocked with tools. If necessary, the entire garage will be converted to a side-draft painting booth for filler and primer application, and to help evacuate the dust and fumes that will be generated during the project.

The compressor seen in these pictures has long since been replaced with a newer model. The newer compressor provides enough air volume for any power tools, including sanders and sand blasters. Also notice the many tools hanging on the wall over the counter. We've gone to great lengths to organize everything we'll need for this project, and hopefully it'll stay this way right to the end. The garage has been completely cleaned and aired out in prepapration for this project, and the car is just about ready to be rolled in.

So let's bring it in and get started!
