    Ok as some of you may remember I have a 1967 Ranchero that I am in the process of "updating". The shop I work for finally had some free floor space so I have started working on the engine transplant and rebuilding the front end. Here are some pictures:

    Thanks for the comments! Yeah it is a great shop and as you see we do a bit of everything from custom bikes to hot rodding Chevy's (but only when we have too [​IMG] ). No imports or paint and body but just about everything else. The owner of the shop starting out doing concours quality restorations of early model Mustangs. He rattled of the part numbers of the stuff I needed without even looking at them..needless to say a great resource to have around!

    The 347 is at the machine shop. I will post some pictures when it is ready.

    Laters,
    Jeff

    First I don't want to give the wrong impression here. I work there as the "computer guy" not as a sales person or mechanic. I am doing the most of the work on my Ranchero but there is always plenty of help when I have no idea what I am doing (which is most of the time [​IMG] )

    Anyway we mainly sell high performance parts and not restoration or general autoparts. I got all of my stuff from Dallas Mustang Parts which is just down the road from us. It makes it so easy to do this stuff with all these resources that deal with the older Fords around [​IMG]

    Laters,

    Hehe yup I have been busy! This time of year it is actually hotter inside the shop than outside but at least there are HUGH fans and the sun is not beating down on us.

    I have to say that I am very lucky to have all these resources at my disposal. You guys who do or have done all your work in your own backyard or garage have my full respect. It would be so much harder without all the air tools, lifts, extra hands etc.

    Laters,
    Jeff
