Thumb man with a plan

Good project you got going. Good luck. You got something a lot of people don't have -- effort.

Take a close look at the brake line.

That is a COMPRESSION FITTING!

I almost shit my pants,,,,a friggen compression fitting on a damn brake line.

Good thing I had my eyes open. Needless to say that WILL NOT be reused.

This is the right side frame insert. It will be used as a template for the for the mounting holes to mount the rear suspension.

That sucker fought me for over an hour after I removed the last fastener.

I guess after being sandwitched in the frame rail for twenty years it needed more than a little coaxing to come out.

Nice shirt. Maybe your can pull for Kenny Dutweiller or Richard Clark. Hurry up and finish this thing! At first I couldn't believe you were going to move the axle but now it looks like a no-brainer.

I used to have the car to go with the shirt.

I couldn't leave that alone either. Clapped out turbo six out,,,,327 in.

Sometimes I miss the ability to shred the tires on command.
