Front end almost done, rear end started, and a very rusty/dented exhaust blasted/primed.
Couple of small bumps in the road but making progress!


What's a road without bumps? Lookin good, keep the momentum

Rear bushings, struts, and exhaust all on. Just need to bleed the brakes and adjust the shifter before I finish the first stage of the build.

Can I ask if the rear springs are the original ones, and in which ring clips did you fit the height on the bilsteins please.

We used the original springs(I think they are original anyways). They have three green paint marks.
I went back and worth on replacing these but going to drive the car and see how it all turns out before replacing them.
I used the very top clip as it seemed to line up with the original setup and was happy with the ride height. Won’t know for certain until the car is back on the ground, but I’m sure there is going to be some fine tuning with the setup.

Car is driving, braking, and shifting! Feels like a new car!
Going to take a couple weeks off and then move on to the interior restoration.

Ran into some issues with the key engaging the tumbler. Running out of time and money so decided to just use a push button. The dash already had a cut out from a 90s alarm so I just stuck it there.

Also found a completely rusted out section in the gas tank, so had to replace that as well.
Finished up with swapping out the fuse panel for a new jwest unit. Slowing getting there!
