Well, it's been a while since I added some info to this thread, so I thought I'd take a second to update it.

The rebuilt engine, and the car are now at the installation shop. My front end needed some work and I wanted to see what we could do with the engine bay area. We've just pulled the 'spare' slant six out and as you can see, there is some pretty extensive fender-work that needs to take place. I have ordered brand new AMD inner fenders, which is next on the agenda. After that, the engine compartment (and inside of hood) will be detailed and painted, after which the sparkly-new rebuild of the ORIGINAL engine (along with my rebuild/upgraded A904) transmission will be installed.

I have managed to find an original NOS front right fender, to replace the fiberglass one that was in its place. LURCH (as I've named the car) is heading to the bodyshop next for body work and paint. As luck would have it, I've also found four brand new small bolt-pattern, 14" wheels! I currently have two on the car that are bent and causing a highway-speed shimmy. These will be swapped out this Spring. I wanted to keep the original wheel covers, which is why I've opted for the originally-sized wheels. I am also keeping the 7.25 rear end. More pics to follow, as the work progresses.

Cheers,
Shawn
