  1. And that’s how it should be done folks... ...mic drop!
  2. Why do I do this to myself? Sure sure, it’s to make “room” in the shop, but really, it’s so I can daydream about that special day this is all complete!
  3. Jeff, don’t know if you sourced the new wheel studs yet, but they are available at Silvermine motors. I just ordered a set myself! Edit: NVM, I see you drilled out the rotors...
  4. Some more detail of the parking brake. I hooked up the backing plate and a park brake to show how the cable connects and routes around the suspension. Excellent clearance all around.
  5. Big milestone day! Got the rear diff and half shafts back in the car!
  6. I built mine in... 3/16” steel on the connecting plates. Lowest point on the car...
  7. Took a few minutes to customize the @silverminemotors rear disc brake and park brake adapters. The supplied raw aluminum finish looked good, but I thought it would look better on my car with a nice gloss black finish. First a nice sandblasted texture, still drying from the cleaner...: And some gloss powder: And again after 30 minutes at 425 degrees! Now to just chase the threads and we should be good to go!
  8. While I wait for more brake components to get finished, I thought I would test out this new Park Brake cable from @silverminemotors. Available here from Edan: Park Brake Cable This original equipment was worn out and not suitable for the new Wilwood park brakes. The new cable is complete with the cir-clips needed to secure it to our setups, and fits nicely through our rubber hangers. I will get some more pics of the setup as I connect them to the park brakes. And one without the glare of the flash under the car... The length of the cable looks perfect so it should allow some flexibility in the custom setups for different people. I like it!
  9. I need to make a few adjustments. The offset from the hub to the rotor needs an additional 5mm, and I need to trim the outside diameter of the rotor by 5mm too. Easy peasy!
  10. I will be detailing the process of mounting the Silvermine kit onto the AZC rotors in a seperate thread.
  11. Back for a few days for Easter. Received the Silvermine kit and did a test mock-up. Looks like we have a workable solution.
  12. Install was a straightforward process. It is detailed in my build thread. If you can remove the old set-up, remove the shock cartridge, the rest is fairly simple. The strut is trimmed at a height above the knuckle that allows for max grip and alignment to the coil over. A bead weld is run around the base (not onto the cast knuckle, but the remaining tube from the strut) and that's it. The 3 bolt system bolts right in. You can open up your shock tower like I did and get full access to the camber settings (and show off your fancy coil overs!). Start reading here:
  13. I bought the CX Racing setup and am very impressed with the build quality and design. Contact Edan @silverminemotors for best pricing. I have not got mine on the road yet, but other reviews have been very positive.
  14. I really thought my 40th anniversary (year not model) car would look different than the 50th though....
  15. I really thought my 2010 would be replaced with a new design by 2015... I was wrong. And disappointed. Too many of them out there now with all the same features and design.
  16. I have a pig just like that! And I love her dearly....!
  17. That and the 120mm artillery firing a couple km’s away mixed in with 120mm leopard 2 tank rounds running level five ranges on top of 500lb jdams being dropped by jets.... ...it’s a noisy place!
  18. Just got buzzed by an air jockey in a CF18 Hornet, 30 feet over my tank park. I should be pissed, but it was kinda cool...!
  19. I’ll be there to spill his secrets ....
  20. Buy them in bulk on eBay etc. With the proper pliers, they snap in fast and can be removed in seconds for quick panel fitting etc. Sheet metal screws tend to distort the metal a bit too. Cleco’s are a clean solution for metal working
  21. Take $2000 cash with you and offer $500 first
  22. Sounds like a steak I had at my brother in-laws .... indistinguishable lump...
