    Yes it does. And it takes more time dropping or installing the driveline to.

    Here are a few pictures of the car on the table. Derek is welding in support for the coilovers front and rear and a couple of custom touches. When it comes time to sell the car (when? I have no idea) I'll be able to show the car was strait and true in 2022.

    While the car was on the table a repair is taking place under the spring plate studs on the driver side. At some point in this cars life it was jacked up in the wrong place. The outer layer was cut, reformed, and reattached. I was curious to see what was under the skin. ZERO rust! I've been unable to find any rust on this car other than a little surface rust on the inside of the car under the driver and passengers feet. Water must of settled there at some point. Maybe 12X12 inches. I've used a digital probe in the torsion tube, rockers, heater tubes, cut a hole in the front suspension pan and looked inside, pulled the sound pad off, looked behind the headlights & turnsiginals, ZERO rust. I've not pulled the windows out yet to look there. It's gotta have some somewhere I just haven't found any yet thankfully.
    The factory welds on the studs will get cleaned up and the Elephant plates will get welded over the studs.

    Since the engine is out I thought it was a no brainer to adjust the valves. I also droped off my 70 amp altenator for a 18,000 mile checkup.
    I cleaned out a little grit just behind the fan but I didn't touch the cylinders or heads.

    Derek is doing a nice job of cleaning up the welds around the spring plate posts.

    First coat of undercoating and a few gas tank pictures. There won't be a tank screen. I'll run a filter between the tank and fuel pump. I run another big one in the engine compartment behind the coil packs.
