    Landed the crossmember today with the Hellcrate and T-56 Magnum, headers and all auxiliaries. Motor install from below is the way to go if you have a lift!
    Positioned the USCT trans crossmember supports. Tomorrow should be a welding day.
    Only issues at this point seem to be the wiper motor and the internal structure of the fiberglass hood which will need some trimming.
    I had to order a front shift position kit for the T-56 as both the rear positions are directly below the new USCT, upper crossmember.

    Felt like a milestone day anyway. I know I'm worn out.

        Nice. What k-frame is that?
        You are right, engine install is so easy from the bottom.
