Default Heater core project

I just started today to put in a new heater core, let me say that from what i have done so far it is a thankless job. I bought the core for $66 and so far I have 6-7 hours in to it. He is what I have done now, I will post more as I go.

Here is the link

I know that part lol. I would have to sell the jimmy to pay for the labor. It could be a lot worse. Have you put on in before?
