Thanks Bud. I was wondering where you had got to. Too bad you can't make the trek to C5F II. I made it to the 1st one in Georgia last year. Although I flew and rented a Camaro, I had an absolute hoot. Very cool putting faces and people to all these screen names

Well things didn't go as well as planned. Got three of five bushings. Have to take a break, need to make a special tool (Pump BRT-001). Make my life way easier. Hate to struggle. When the instructions say "use bushing removal tool to remove bushing" run and hide.

Outer trailing arm bushings.

It was ugly, had to burn them out. But it worked mint.

Next

Next was the Pumpkin bushings. We got one no problem, but the other two. Not going to happen without a struggle or a special tool.

I'm bushed just from catching up...Great Job so far Merc, I can't wait to see this car at the Fest. The paint work under the hood is first rate, and to build a spot for Scott to sign it was amazing..

I'm still down the road a little bit from the suspension mods... though my car is going in the shop next week. They started ordering parts today, wait, yesterday since it's almost 2:00 am, and I will drop Brandi off at the end of next week... Woo Hoo...
