(axles, tire rods, a-arm, breaks, struts, etc.)
Ooooh shiney!!!

Putting the time and effort into the car makes it all that more special to ya and it saves a nice car an untimely death.

I fixed the broken axle! It was like putting a puzzle together, with fat fingers covered in grease, with long rice.

Spent about three hours on it, Slowly working/ talking on the phone, Put the subframe in, and stearing shaft, and hooked all the wiring up, bolted in the struts, left to do,

Install starter
put spark plug wires on
Change the oil
hook up raid lines
motor mounts

Drive away... (about an hour of work) a.k.a (3 days LOL)

Also thinking of picking up a 96 GTP
