    Thanks. That had to be a very nice day of cruising with pops. You have to take advantage of everyone of those days you can!

    Today a pile of parts showed up so hopefully over the next few days I can get some of them put on. I have the lower control arms off right now so I can cut down the coils to drop it a little. I wish I had the extra cash right now to buy my upper control arm del-alum bushings and the 2g drop springs I want. But I don't so for now I'm installing new upper and lower ball joints, new sway bar bushings and links, and del-alum bushings in the lower control arms. I'll have to do the springs and UCA bushings in the spring.

    Mike and Mike, those are them! All the auto cross guys swear by them. The hot ticket for the rear shackle bushings are these or the full delrin ones.

    I don't know if they are available for my aftermarket MII control arms, but I intend to check. I had intended to eventually make something similar out of Delrin or Teflon to eliminate the polyurethane friction , but sometimes it's not worth the effort to make something if the price isn't too high for the commercial parts.

    Those actually look to be made from Teflon. It's only available in white, as far as I know.

    They're made from Delrin. That's where the Del comes from in the Del-a-alum name. A friend of mine is looking into making these for MII's because he's tired of his poly bushings squeaking.

    I'm working on getting interior pieces cleaned and re dyed. I am in limbo mode trying to decide if I want to go ahead and order the drop springs now so I don't have to tear the front back apart again. Here are a few pics. New door panels, and a trunk filling up with new parts. I got one of the rain gutters installed too. This car may not be a beater after all.

    Delrin is some great stuff for bushings! Richard (Techinspector) told me about it a few years back right here on CHR, I buy it in bulk, then borrow a friends lathe to make the bushings. They work great and wear is minimal. I use a steel sleeve for the center, coat everything with never-seize on most anything that will have performance use, friction is minimal.

    Do you want to make some for a set of tubular upper and lower MII control arms?

    Not enough progress was made on the Camaro over the weekend. I helped my mom go get her round bales and that lead to me taking the neighbor's bale stabber home Sunday and working half the day on it. It is a cobbled up mess. I wanted to build him a new one but he wouldn't go for it. It wouldn't have cost him anything as I was doing it for free since he comes move the big round bales for my parents since their skid loader is broken.

    Anyhow, I did get my new upper door panels and arm rests scuffed and dyed/painted. I got the first round of filler on my intake and got it primed. I also got the outer window sweeps put on the new upper door panels. It's amazing how much time this little stuff takes.

    That intake turned out nice. Has the turbo always been part of the plan? I just noticed it. Guess I need to pay more attention.
