Anyone else done anything like this? Maybe not so radical. Maybe I'm just bantering in some insomniac way at 2 a.m.
Catch ya Laters.

but that's really it.
Does taking the oil pan and valve covers as well as the front 1/3rd of exhaust out to work on, count?
(I know, not very far in the tear down!)

I have swapped an entire driveline on another
and now I can add 4 engine teardowns (for rescuing the heads)
and one engine head rebuild with ery clean remanu'd heads and the cams all cleaned up and new belts and the turbo all clean.... blah blah blah.
but a single car all the way to the skeleton and back? nope only on Mom's 1969 dodge charger so far :>)

I stripped an XT of its 4WD drivetrain, which is now under my GL-10...I have yet to install the XT6 FT4WD trans mind you...
I've stripped another XT of its ENTIRE suspension.
Ive since then put the seat and center console back in, just so the diff lock switch is on one place all the time. The dorr panels...I dont know what to do with them yet. I want to take the dash out and rid it of the A/C stuff, and some other stuff.

a few XT6s too

Today I had the entire front suspension off the XT, I was replacing the struts and also needed lots of access to the engine bay, so I just yanked everything. Then I proceeded to pull the transmission and rear diff (going from a turbo trans to an NA, final drive has to match). Now I just gotta put everything back together....
Here's to my first transmission job!!

I've stripped out several Soobs, and have replaced/removed 3/4 dashes (lots of fun). Hopefully soon, I will have a garage built at my new place so I wont have to work in the dirt or dark anymore.

It was completely stripped of all interior, dash, wiring harness, engine, tranny, front suspension. This was all to install the 90 EFI Justy Motor.
I also stripped the 90 donor car down to a bare unibody before loading it on the tilt and load for it's journey to the crusher.
the best part of it is, that i know how everything goes back together, and if anything goes wrong, i know exactly how it is
