Got some good progress on the front end today. Got all the new subframe and suspension in and the car back on all fours agian. Finally
I painted the subframe and control arms. Everything has brand new poly bushing. New steering rack new tie rod ends, new ball joints, new sway bar and end links(soon to come)






Now that the car is mobile agian. I can get alot more done. Sunday I'm going to redo all the interior and get that out of the way
