I'm gonna have to swing by there sometime and see if it's all for real. You are about 2 months ahead of me! Garage is too freakin' cold right now. Nice work!
Holy cow was that poor thing filthy! Good to see she's getting all cleaned up... nice job! [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
Finally some more progress. Sunday I got the new wheel bearings pressed in as well as the control arm bushings. I got some stuff on the car but didnt get any pics until today.
Today I finally picked up the strut tubes from powder. They coulndt match the bilstein yellow exactly, but its close enough considering how far awaay the rears are. I also got both strut assemblies together, both control arms on, passs side complete brakes and new ss braided line on, both struts in, and the sway bar on.
The damn swaybar had no grease left in the bushigns at all, if fact I almost had to use a pair of pliers to get the center ones moving again. A little prothane grease and all is well again.
I did run into a snag. One of the rubber boots in the new caliper is wrong. The damn guide pin wont fit thru worth a ****. So I need to order anoter caliper and pull the boot out of it and return it. Also I keep forgettig to order the new tie rods so thats on tomorrows list with the caliper.
I still need to put the axles in and do the final ball joint bolting. With any luck Ill have the car back on the ground and out of the garage on sunday.

Gonna head out for a bit tonight and try to be ready for the tie rods and such to show up tomorrow. With any luck it will be in the trailer on sunday.

trailer to where?
Finished putting everything together last night. I just need to tighten one axle nut, bleed front brakes and put some trans fluid in. Then just wheels and it should be able to come out of the garage finally.
I snapped two new pics of the dirvers side. Not much diff that before, just all together.

A little bit of news on this, no real progress tho.
I picked up a 2.0 16v saturday to swap in. I was thinking about doing an aba swap, but this seemed like a better idea :shrugs: At $250 bux for everything I couldnt complain
Also I think I decided on a color scheme for the car. I had a buddy pchop a silver cabby (sorry to whoever's pic I stole)
