    This was my new exhaust that I had installed on the Jimmy when I completed the first engine build...

    Should be able to click on video and it automatically play.

    I am in the process of painting the entire interior black. I just modified my reverse lights so that they are now operational when I flip a tiny toggle switch I beside my floor shifter. I also installed a tiny green led to let me know when they are illuminated. It is my dummy light lol.

    I am interested in the "Suicide Hood Modification", however I need photographs to supplement the directions. I guess I am a dummy without photographs. Does anyone know where I can locate a thread that still contains photographs? A future purchase was going to be a cowl induction hood and I was wondering if this modification will prevent this purchase?

    There's a how to one here. The only issue you have with the hood you want to buy is going to be mounting the hood hinge to that kind of hood. I haven't had but the metal hood and it works great for the mod.

    Update:

    My 420-430hp engine has put my transmission to the ultimate test...

    My transmission burnt up yesterday. I managed to drive it home locked in second gear... GRRR...

    Thanks for the compliment. It is a built 355 I just finished. It is ready for anything that I may want to throw at it. The transmission however, bit the dust
    after a month of driving. I didn't have to tear front end apart, but it sure made the second engine install easier.

    P.S. I noticed some of my photographs disappeared. I am not sure why. I haven't modified my photobucket account. "Strange"

    photobucket sometimes does weird shit on its own.

    And i agree, pulling the front clip makes life so much easier. Its only a couple extra bolts to have a lot of extra room and a more sensible work angle to drop the motor in.

    Yeah it does, it's way easier to do a swap without the front end. I've always pulled mine in the past.
