I will be welding as much as possible and use as little filler as i can get away with. Thats the best way i think.

dont need a hoist m8, just been looking at your project thread, you already got the front end off, all you gotta do is jack it up from underneath and slide it out. or you could move car forward and jack it up as high as posible, then put heels under the engine, disconnect it all then lower car down wich will leave engine in place. is easier with someone to help steady things but ive done it on my own before!

good luck
