      persuaded a very good friend of mine to help me with pressing my front wheel bearings and hubs in today, and managed to sneak in some time at the sandblaster for the front carriers, spindles, and brake dust shields.

      tomorrow, paint begins!

      i'm so damn tired.

      i'll take pictures tomorrow, i suppose

      yaawwwwwnnnn

      so here's a couple "in progress" pictures.
      i have so much to update this thread with, but eh.
      i'm feelin' lazy.

      sandblasted carriers


      finished:


      old axle was toast and the problem with all the wobblin'


      refinished spindles


      new axle is goin' in soon. i'm having a hard time with motivation lately.
      this car will probably never get fun coils or cool wheels or nuthin', so don't get too excited.
      this is mostly just a log to keep track of the things i've done.

      time to get it back up and running.

      still can't find swaybar end links. fuh.

      car isn't starting, sending a mechanic to check it out.

      last bits for now:
      rear motor mount
      ebrake cables
      gas
      oil change
      drive it.
      i really need a second resonator
      and a bunch of interior bits.
      wheels coming next week, likely, as these are potatoes and i need two tires anyhow.
      wheeeee


      sigh

      just been cruising in this thing for a while.

      working on getting the interior buttoned up.

      got some ats type 10s on it.

      next:
      major maintenance on the belt side
      possibly some coils
      and the last of the brake/fluids work.

      oof.
