Thanks in advance..

I didn't drain any coolant but it comes out of the upper rad hose when u remove it. Usually close to a gallon. I was wearing gym shorts and a shirt, my arms got a little dirty, thats it, just make sure to wash off the suspension and underside with a water hose when done to get the spilt coolant off.

The coolant supposed to be used is the one timmy suggested earlier in the thread, however i used the universal and have had no problems.

Thanks, oldhotrod is the one that got the ball rolling so don't forget to shoot him some reps for the part number, I try to do write ups if I do anything I feel like people would have questions on.
