Default Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Good day fellas!
Now that the seasonal rush is over, I should have a little more time to "play". I'm certain most of you can understand the need to get your hands dirty.
I did manage to get the differential together along with the Columbia overdrive. Went to install the (finished) radius rods and discovered a huge oversight on my part. The right rod was bent where it bolts to the axle housing. ARGGHH! How I missed this is beyond me but I did - a certain "Bozo" moment. That set me back as I really wanted to have this entire assembly tucked beneath the car by now.
Just plain stupid at times

Today I am planning on wrapping the springs. I'll try to remember to take a few photos of that process. It's tedious work but in my opinion worth the efforts.
