    Did some work on the bushings tonight...



    I can NOT get that outer metal ring out though. I might need a press. Or something better to squeeze it with in the vise

    Still going on this thing, I haven't given up, but I can't lie - stitching all the seams sucks. Finished the passenger cabin, working on the engine bay. I'll get some pics up after that part. I'm dreading doing the undercarriage...

    Well, let's see... been a while since I updated but here goes...

    I got all the welding done in the rear section for the most part, there's still a few patches I gotta figure out how to get to, but that shouldn't take long. No pics of that yet...

    Did all the suspension bushings, they're not supah hard once you figure out how to get them out easy:



    Here are the subframes loaded up and ready to go to the car:



    If you get the energy suspension bushings, get the grey/black ones. They're not as flashy, but they are graphite impregnated and thus somehwhat self-lubricating. I didn't know this when I got mine...

    More to come tomorrow.

    Sanctioning bodies have rules about cages - thickess, material, mounting, design, etc. We don't have a mandrel pipe bender or a tig welder... soooo I'm gonna have to save up for a cage
