I replaced most of the body mounts ( pita ) I also replaced all the steering linkage with new tie rod ends. This has been a fun project and its just about ready for paint. I need to get set up with a computer so I don't have to do this from my cell phone ever again   ;D

I would have put this in the build section , but I wouldn't want to bore everyone with a thousand pictures of sheet metal repair.

Jerry, I got your text today, but forgot to respond. 

Looks killer.  I bet it's cleaner now than when it left the factory.   ;)
