Oh Jeff, if you swap a PS rack in it, the manual steering link it has now will be the perfect length for the 6" lift blocks :banana: so no cutting and welding required.

Don't sweat the paint, man. That stuff is water-based marking paint. Probably wouldn't hold up to 2 weeks of rain in your yard, let alone on a car. My bad if that's traffic paint, but the nozzle looks wrong. I'd scrub it all off with some scotchbrite and head back to walmart for the good stuff. :banana:

Well the front is all buttoned up except the Strut tops, Bill sent them yesterday, so I hope they are here soon. I still have the steering to do but except that, I'll be able to set it down and let it chill all on its own!!!
I'll post more pics once they get here, Ive seen the blocks that Bill made and they are magical...........................:grin:

Looks like they worked out ok. Did they give you any troubles putting them in?

Looks pretty level.
