Latest work -- more suspension.

But first, check out this great blackout light. I got two pair for a total of $30... One pair will go on the art car, the other might go on my truck...


First off, I need to replace the lower ball joints. This requires a press of some sort. I don't have a press, but I have this big-ass C-clamp. Kids, don't try this at home, because it doesn't work. Get an arbor press, take apart the front suspension properly, etc etc. Alternatively, do what I plan on doing and take it to a shop to have the ball joints replaced by someone who doesn't think they can use a C-clamp as an arbor press.

Eventually I pulled my head out and got the front wheels on. Now to plumb the brake lines...
