Nice work Cary. It's always interesting and challenging when it comes to chassis diagnosis. Specially with 2000 miles between us. Looks like we figured out what happened. I have a few ideas how to set it right. I will send another email then we can talk again.



Such a great community.... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/cheer.gif)

Well after all the measurements, pictures and emails Rick and I came to the consensus that the car took a hit on the right control arm end cap and tire wheel.

pretty significant whack..................

But after all the geometry, it looks to be 2-3 mm both back and to the right. Which is just a smidgen out of tolerance. So back to work ...............

First order of business. I'll fix the split in the tire well.

Needs a little more hammer and dolly work when I have a second set of hands.

Blasted the cross member and gave it a couple coats of cold galvanizing.

After just a smidgen of tuning and she slipped into place.

Next onto welding in the right rear cross member mount.

Spent the morning weldng on the right rear cross member mount and re welding the arch. A little dicey ........... The flange took quite a beating coming out. But it came together nicely.

Checking the backside ............. a couple pin holes to fill

Gooder as new .......

Left last night with the bottom side of the cowl getting an Ospho treatment.
Best guess is the rust freckles are from the Dustless Blaster media left hanging.
Prior to the treatment, Taylor spent about 3 hours removing blasting media from the tub.
Round and round on the rotisserie. Plus some tapping with rubber mallets.

Catch up on Taylor's car.
1st. Treated the bottom side of the cowl with OSPHO. It had quite a bit of over spray or condensation from the paint stripping. After the OSPHO dried Taylor scrubbed it down with a red pad.

Then I gave it two coats of cold galvanizing in case it gets missing during paint.
Forgot to shoot a photo. I'll be back.

2nd. Onto the patch at the base of the cross panel.

Took a little tuning to get it ready to weld in. It's a pretty tough removal. It's wedged in there pretty good.

Ready to go ................

Decided that the left inner fender needed a patch on a fairly thin spot.
