Upper and lower control arm bushings replaced, strut rod bushings on the bench,
Waiting for: outrigger bushings, rack boots, and tie rod ends.
Brake flex lines replaced.
Right caliper seized solid, outer piston stuck in the extended position and visibly pitted and outer pad down to metal, inner piston stuck but pad still has material on it.
Left caliper both pistons move but not well, both pads have significant amount of pad left.
Anyway to tell if these are original calipers or a replacement from a Triumph or something? Both calipers have a G cast in the inner half.
Both calipers full of water/brake fluid mix
Upper subframe to body mounts replaced.
Speedometer cable got snagged on the engine during removal and has been rendered unusable. That's what happens when you're tired and working alone. September is target date for actual use.....but based on what I've seen so far, the rear braking system will be in an equal state of disrepair. Time will tell....
