    All the lower arms I have ever seen have the ball joint end pushed back and ovaled..Strap around the end would help ??

    I added a small piece of 3/4” tube to support the bottom/backside of the ball joint cup.

    I was able to support the sides of the cups with some 5/16” rod wedged in from the bottom.

    Sorry for the delay in progress, I felt like this was important to address since we’re not planning to carry a spare arm.

    It feels good to be putting parts back on this car!

    I re-routed the positive battery cable to the smuggler box and sealed the holes in the floor with foam and glue. Water tight.

    Also, cleaned/greased the steering bearing and made a new lock plate for the steering coupler to rack bolts (the old ones broken when I folded the tabs over – last step🤦‍♂️)

    Gas tank extension to move the hose and clamp further back for clearance on the new shock towers. See the vertical tube.

    I can’t imagine how great this car is going to feel sliding around corners.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    clutch adjusted. Fluids changed. A bit of wiring on the engine tomorrow. Doing as much as we can. All the little bits add up

    Good call on the phenolic spacers.  Will make for easier hot starts.  Not sure why these motors like to boil the gas in the bowl, but they do.
