Replacing the UCA and LCA . Took the opportunity to perform the Shelby Drop using a purchased template. Straight forward enough. Gave the inner guards a coat of gloss black. The car's underside had been sprayed with an anti corrosion coat in its lifetime and what looks like surface rust under the paint is remnants of the old coating. ( the coating worked as the underside is virtually rust free).

Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of drought and flooding rains,..enough with the floods already..."

Was out for a spin today for the first time in a month or so. Really enjoyed the new disc brake setup but to be honest enjoyed the 3.50 gears I installed at the same time more :mrgreen: :D
