Can you please post some more pictures of the front suspension?

I want to see the way the stabilizer bar is connected to shocks.

Got some work done this weekend. Pulled the CSL bumper, all the white trim, rear bumper, cut the doors down so they clear the cage, pulled everything off the car we don't want painted, screwed around with the angle grinder, and swapped the painted parts on to the old shell.

Had a bit of fail. Tried to take the car to the drag strip to see what she could do in the 1/4 (I know not what it's built for, just curious!), but they wouldn't let me run because the car has no windows at the moment. I could see them not letting me run because of how I had no bumpers, but windows!?!?

Anyway, my friend took some pics on the drive there and there:

Bit of fail today. On my way in had a blow out on the trailer. Jacked it up, tried to put on the spare... only to find that the spare that came with the trailer had a different bolt pattern than the trailer

Limped it a mile to sears and had a new tire mounted, dropped the car off for paint, and was done with it. Should get the can back on friday or saturday

Okay, got her back from the paint shop today. Clearly there's no trim, no wing, so lights, to emblems, no kidneys, not mesh, and no stickers, so the car's a bit naked, but, so far I'm LOVING the new paint job
