What a difference sand blasting makes to the overall speed of this project. Shown the first coat of paint to the front driver side fender area shortly after sand blasting.

Progress Pictures of the bumper restore. Note: I should have taken pictures prior to the rust converter as it looked much more impressive (First two Pictures)

I had to remove the already completed hub assembly on the passenger side of the car per a stripped bolt issue on the cv axle side. This also meant I had to reinstalled an outer-bearing and refurbish a fairly rusted replacement. The pictures do not really give justice to how much surface rust was present. The end result looks like previous pictures after painted so I did not bother taking any new pictures. Also show is the rear metal support brace that was badly bent. Sadly I forget to get pictures of it with the new paint job…perhaps the next time I go under the car I will have a chance.

Here are the results of my 2nd attempt at pressing the rear inner bearing into the control arm. This time things went much better.
The control arm was stripped of all paint to resolve an an issue with the existing paint. In the photos you can see the first new coat on the Arm/Hub.

Some pictures of the intake, header, and new plugs installed. This would end up being a “test” fit as there would be issues with the threads on the head that would be discovered later. All over spray that is visible was also removed prior to the final install.

More pictures of the engine after the repaint, the over spray on the head was removed at a later date. This was a tough job with the engine in the car but it came out pretty nice in the end.
