Default Project polyurethane

So last week after finally getting some free time at the shop i decided to pull my camaro in and swap out my body mount bushings for polyurethane..Welll come to find out i was missing the currents and the holes were slightly rusted.SO i decided welp time for subframe to come out and repair to be done.So i cut the exhaust off (junk to me) anyways then procedded to yank the frame out.here we are with it out.Sounds simple right ha

Then it was onto fixing the bad spots

then twas time for an actual sandblasting and repaint then installing new trans member bolts and all the new bushings

then i put it all back together..By this time it was 3 am i was tired and still had to measure bend cut weld and fab up an exhaust.i also pulled the ac box out and made a delete panel i started at 4 pm thursday and was done and on a test run at 9 am friday..was very tired ill snap some pics of the finished stuff soon

dont know what a bridgeport is. i think i have a idea kinda looks like a drill bit but is used for machining stuff? i dont do any of that really. we have carbide hole saws at work to cut stuff like that.

Looking good Dakota!

I'd sell my wife if I could have a garage like that. Thus the reason why I still work in the cold driveway.
