Well didn't get it done had some issues with stuck bolt had to run to town and get sawsall blades also had to run out and get a pickle fork to get the drag link off. Plus several other minor hold up. All this and I got a stinking cold. Sure could have used you BAP and uncle J. But I got the front all done hopefully the back will go a lot quicker tomorrow.

Oh man I have never had this much problem with work on any car. I have broken bolts and had to cut shocks just one problem after anoughter. Hopefully if God wills I will finish it tomorrow. Got to drill out the upper shock mount bolts and the rear will be ready to go back together then do the transmission drop and I am done. So say a little prayer for me BAP.
