It was a busy weekend again!

I set out to stength test the brackets I welded for the 5-point harnesses. I figured if I could pick up the car by the brackets, they should be strong enough. I chained the engine crane to the brackets and lifted the car until two wheels were off the ground. They didn't move one bit

After that, Chris and I succeeded in pulling the M50 out. All that's left is to clean up the engine bay a bit, bolt stuff onto the new engine, and then it will be ready to drop in.
