    So it went up to ortiz's to sit in a barn with no heat, a hole in the roof, and not get finished.

    What at was the point of that again?

    well I didn't pay attention when I took the A arms off that it had generic Chinese bolts holding the front end together. Because they don't have a pointed end its basically impossible to get the bolt through the hole.

    so today I order the correct hardware and a new rear brake line and some other misc stuff. another 200 doll hairs gone lol
