Got some good progress done on the car tonight. E-brake assemblies have been reassembled on the trailing arms, diff fluid changed, rear subframe and diff are back in and torqued, left rear trailing arm is back in. Left rear brake lines are in.

Tomorrow I'll tackle the other rear trailing arm, put the rear shocks in, connect up the halfshafts, driveshaft, and exhaust.

I'm still fixing it from crashing it last August. It got a new halfshaft, new rear lower control arms & balljoints, rear trailing arm pocket reinforcements, rear swaybar reinforcements, differential bolt reinforcement, fixed the driveshaft center support bearing stud, new L front spindle & wheel hub, new tie rods, new front control arm & bushings. Had/have to make 2 hard brake lines. I'm slow though...I only get to work on it about once every 3 weeks.

The rear end is pretty much finished, next up is driveshaft, the front end, & rebuilding a brake caliper. I'm waiting on parts from Vorshlag though to adapt their camber plates with OEM style springs.

Yeah, long story. It wasn't that bad but I took the opportunity to do some things I should've done before (reinforcements). On the upside it should be 100% by mid-April - early May.

Hey Brendan, i know you're a whiskey drinker. I want to try scotch but have no clue about them. Don't wanna spend a lot if i don't like it. Got any suggestions? I looked on the lcb online store and was shocked to see 375ml bottle being sold for north of $100. I don't remember what but damn i might stick to Jim instead lol
