Picking up the car.
Once it got to the body shop we started to tear it down and take everything apart.
Started work on the body parts.
We also started to gather all the parts for the engine rebuild and maintenance.
We towed the car to AMS Autowerks in Linden New Jersey to have Diego Azevedo remove the drive train in order to start re building it.
Old engine removed.
New engine being built.
Meanwhile back at the shop the work continues on the body parts.
