Thanks guys, I was kinda thinking I'd have to undo the mount.

So I ran into a problem after getting everything back together. The car wouldn't start. It would turn over but wouldn't fire.
Long story short, the wiring harness for the fuel rail was old and brittle and the wires broke. I brought it to Wes and he fixed it up. Also, I didn't tighten down my valve cover gasket before I fired it up so oil leaked all over everything I cleaned.
The clean engine bay struggle is real.

Got the Rado all back together tonight. Took my lady for a cruise. It was her first time riding in the G60. The Rado did not disappoint. Look out for it driving around Missoula!

Corrado is back up!

Haven't had much time lately so I brought it up to Wes at Import Palace. Got a shiny new air filter, radiator fan assembly, and valve cover gasket leak got taken care of.

I'm definitely leaking coolant though. I've refilled it twice in 2 weeks. I really hope its not the head gasket from driving it those times when the fans weren't working!
