        Rear end rebuild - let’s get at it. Need to get subframe to powder first.

          I don’t see a fuel filler hose in that smorgasbord of parts! I’d replace that while you have the subframe out if you haven’t already.

          Getting close!

              Started the deconstruction of the rear. It’s been going pretty well until I got to the passenger side axle shaft. Won’t budge with heat, beating the crap out of it and other methods.

                Got the subframe powdered and will put it together this weekend. I have all new parts and am working on getting the original rear subframe out of the car. It’s getting there!

                  The rear subframe looks incredible. Going to be a beauty to see anytime you're under the car - is it going to stay that "shiny"?

                    I hope it all stays shiny.


                    Got the original subframe out and it was a pain in the ass. Had a piece of the bushing break into the chassis so need to chisel it out.

                      All new hardware, paint, speed sensor for the diff. Have the wires for the rear all newly wrapped. Getting there! Subframe will go back in this weekend.

                        Finally was able to continue to work on the car. Some progress this weekend.

                        Got a new heat shield in to get rid of all the nasty rusted stuff.

                        Got the diff done and the subframe ready to go back in. Didn’t because I need some new brake hard lines.

                        Had a mobile car audio guy come out and hooked up the gauges and the new head unit.

                          Rebuilding the axle shafts. Need to source one since I mushroomed the end of one of mine while removing it.

                            Alpine installed. Alpine has customized colors so I think I got it matching!

                              I have a kenwood head unit that has the same deal, the color is just about right, but I wish the lcd wasn't blue..
