Here are some pics of my project.
I began this in September 2004 and finished in April 2007.

all piston rings are broken
In between, I got married and my wife gave birth to our son.
I was sure glad to be done and enjoying the car. 8-)

Too bad I found another car dying to be restored not 10 miles from my house. :shock:
I'm now in the middle of that job...when time allows.
Bye for now...
