Its been a while since ive been on here, but i just wanted to let everyone know that i did finally get the rear hatch open, and have started cleaning up the wiring and carbs in preparation to remove the engine. I would love to have the car ready for May of next year, so i figured that i beter get to it.(the **** cold weather doesnt help me face my procrastination) The pictures and advice were very helpful! i really appreciated them. hope to see everyone in the sunny weather!
