    wasn't to busy today, so I got more done...
    took the hood off, windsheild wipers-what hell that was, I couldn't get them off /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
    then the windsheild cowl, grill, stock jack LOL, radiator, fan shroud, battery tray, engine coolant container, and some other misc stuff.
    Besides the raditor leaking all over the ground, a couple swear words, a few thrown tools, and one broken light, the day went pretty good.
    Here are some pics in no order:

    I was trying to get my front clip completly off tonight, but I got tired and headed in. I still need to take off some bolts, and somehow get 2 screws from each running board unthreading (the heads stripped-damn rust) and then some other stuff, and it should be off.
    also, for some reason, my radiator was just held on by 2 brackets where the hood latches... i unbolted 2 bolts per side, and it was ready to come out... (besides the hoses) is this how it is suposed to be?
    Thanks!

    for the radiator question, yea just the top bolts hold it in, in the bottom there are these little bushing type things that go under it to keep the botom from sliding out, just unbolt the top and yank it out /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
