05-07-2010 04:58 PM Finally, I estimated correctly!
I said yesterday I'd have the wagon all wrapped up today, and...

I WAS RIGHT!!!

New ball joints in, front ride height adjusted down just a touch, it's all finished up. Drives like a different car with the new ball joints and not kissing the bump stops. I can live with the slightly higher stance in exchange for good handling and ride quality, it's a huge difference.

I just have to make the mount for the drivers side skirt, and it's good to go.

Got the Pontiac Tin Woody going today, almost. When I took the front end apart to raise it a little (almost on the bumpstops) found the ball joints were shot. Huh, well, new ones are cheap. Should have it wrapped up tommorow.http://flynbrian48.wordpress.com/2010/05/07/117/

Getting the '36 up to Lansing this afternoon to set up for this weekends "Conquerors Car Show" in Lansing, MI. It's all cleaned up, made some stantions to rope the car off, and gave me a reason and incentive to get the HOT ROD feature article matted and framed. Should be fun.
