so i’ve not…

posted car repair updates in a while.

mainly because i’ve not made any real progress in a while.

but i was able to get a bit done today, as the driver’s rear subframe has gone from this:

to this:

not the most attractive job in the world, i admit. but it’s much better than it was.

what’s not obvious in the first picture is that the mounting area for the radius arm safety strap had been crushed upwards a little more than half an inch, and that the frame rail was badly rotten along its center running fore-and-aft from the radius arm body mount.

i’ve still got quite a bit of work to do in this area, really. but any progress is better than no progress.

“Space isn’t remote at all. It’s only an hour’s drive away if your car could go straight upwards.” – Sir Fred Hoyle
