You're right about that. It's also handy to have the pictures and info on the internet. You don't have to be at home on your own computer to look at them. You can use any computer with the internet!

The cleaning continued with some finishing grinding, and today it was time for the engine

block.
I also removed all the freeze plugs except for the front welsh one.

Today I bought some extra shelfs and put them up behind the other project car.
So today was about cleaning around the cars.

Today I got another package.
This time I got my new wheel arches. They are for a Opel (Vaxhall) Calibra.
I bought them through ebay and by doing so I saved about half of what they would have
cost me here in Sweden. And that's including shipping!

Today I disassembled the head from remaining valve parts.
The exhaust valve seats does not really look to be in mint condition :-/

Now it's time for some bodywork.
First I had to remove the old putty, which was a lot :S
Then I marked out where the big damages was.
I wanted to fix the dent (caused by my welding) in front of the wheel arch first.
So I welded an attachment for the slidehammer on and started working the dent out.

I gave up on my previous dent fixing idea.
The metal is getting too weak so I decided to weld in some new metal instead :)

I welded some more on the new metal today.
I'm doing one spot weld at a time and cool it with compressed air to avoid distortion.

Today I picked up my engine block.
The head surface is shaved and the bores are 0,5 mm bigger now :)

I also welded my new wheel arch in place.

Today I painted my engine block with a coat of paint to keep the rust away.
I will finish painting it when the freeze plugs are in.

I got help from a friend so we rolled the supra away to the garage washing spot
where I could remove the putty from the right side and avoid filling the garage
with dust...again.

Then we got my supra up on jack stands again, this time with the ass out so that
I can work on both sides without moving the car.

The pictures are taken with my friends iPhone so I'm sorry for the quality.
