    I gathered up some missing brake parts and prepped for a sand blast session. The new/clean Empi torsion arms lended themselves nicely to tig welding the end caps, and a little profile work on the seams/casting numbers.

    Epoxy sealed the trunk and engine bay yesterday. Worked out a couple imperfections in the sealer this morning.

    More shiny L360 just laid down.01D85C7D-230C-47CC-8EB0-3F427C393357571B596A-2D15-4199-BBED-63B12A9D90824FFBAD18-DC80-4BA5-8E5B-B4B7B592399E

    Drllled and spot-faced the backside of the rear drums for 7/16” studs to match the front disc brake kit. Press-fit .010” on the studs and a couple of tig beads to prevent them from spinning.

    Notched spring plates for cal-look lowered stance. What do you think for tires? Like a 205/70 rear and 145/80 front?
    Ready for a paint session tomorrow. What color? Gloss black?
