ps, I was going to post a few pictures but they display huge! rather than resizing the images, is there a way to display them smaller in the post? like img=50% or something?

small garage we're working in
actual color is a safetyish orange, safety first
strut spacers are the only thing installed so far
hoping to have the rest of the lift blocks installed by next weekend

I used to live in Wilmington (up in Chalfonte) just off 202 near the border. Welcome to the Board.

edrach, always run into people that have lived in DE wherever I go! If you grew up here the question is always "where did you go to high school", since there are only 40 something of them in the state. i went to middle school at springer, right around the corner from chalfonte. a neat experience was when I was flying home from florida with a bicycle, handed the counter guy my delaware license and turns out he grew up in middletown. we chatted, he checked the bike and waived the $50 fee, sweet!
dropping the engine low enough to get the subframe spacers in
transmission mount and control arm spacers
the control arm spacers were quite fussy to get lined up :/ my beautiful rattle can job is all scuffed, hehe
subframe spacer, spots of gray are some excess primer that is stuck on top of the orange

required a bit of coercion to get the trailing arms in
rear subframe spacer
another angle on trailing arm bracket
one of the welded nuts broke off inside the body
back wheels are on the ground! stock tires look tiny
prettier in the snow
pitchstopper adjustment, hard to get my cordless drill on either side. used a dremel for pilot holes and drilled the big holes out from the passenger side.
fits up nicely

Air filter box is verrrry tight up against the pitchstopper mount
Exhaust headers are just a little rusty
Next steps: fix the gear selector (somewhere between P and R is P, R is N, N is D) get the air out of the coolant system, bleed brakes, figure out something to do with the bumper (old one is in rough shape but will go back on with some effort), get after cat exhaust back on and tucked up higher, save up some money for tires. Super psyched!
