    I still have to pick up the correct mounting bolts.Calipers & rotors these where spare bolts I had handy in my shop.
    I also ran across these..

    Front wheel cylinders brand new in the box.
    Things that make you go HHHUUUMMMMmmm....
    I also know I will have to replace all of my original steel front brake lines once I get deeper into this project.
    I am now two months away from the summer driving season...
    I still also need to invest in a good 2 stage air compressor.
    Undoing the U bolts that hold this front axel in place by hand with NO air is not my idea of a Good Time...

    You should look into the "New" technology of battery powered impact guns, I have a Milwaukee that puts out 1400#-ft Torq. , there are cheaper ones that work just as well, far cheaper than a 2-stage compressor. I use my battery impact a couple times a week now easily !

    Well,I do have a decent battery operated impact gun.
    while it does a good job for lug nuts and small stuff .
    I am pretty sure it does not have enough guts to tackle a bigger job like removing the U bolts from the front axles.
    Sorry I do know my air tools.This electric impact is not even close to a good powerful 1/2 in drive air impact wrench...

    A bit of good news.
    The "Beast" has been setting for way longer than what I really care to admit too..
    I jumped into her today.
    turned the key.The gauges came to life.
    Pushed the gas and she fired right over..
    while it does suck to walk past her while I do work on other things around here.
    For her to fire right over after setting as long as she has.
    Put a huge smile on my face..
