    If the LTD is back up to tip top and legal shape, I think I'm in. Probably hit a few of the awesome junkyards while I'm up there as well.

    I'm a possible as of right now. No job = no money. But if I finish John's wheels, well, that;s another story. It's not like I don't have the time to do them now......
    I'll call the dyno guy again on Monday.

    don't know if he is actually, but if he is, he gets to work on Chevy door hinge pins If not, I'll drive something else.

    chevy door hinge pins are pretty easy actually... I used my pickle fork and 4lbs persuasion to pull the last set and replaced bushings and pins on a lady's olds bravada from church. balancing the door on my floor jack was the annoying part.

    These have the stupid spring built in to the hinge, and the bushing is totally worn through on one side. I think there might be some welding involved to build the hinge back up to normal diameter so the bushing will fit. The hinges are of course non-removable. They're welded on the body.

    the welds were broken on the bradava... the 2 bolts were still holding tough though. it could use the welding as well, but the bushing held and is still holding (been about 6 months).

    just so ya know.
