Teardown

We decided to drop both subframes because everything needs sorted. In the front, one of the control arms is bent. In the back, both axles are cut. Our theory is that a salvage yard cut the axles in order to roll the car around with a seized differential. (There is great freedom in working on a car that was rescued from the crusher!) Thanks to Joshua Young at Crossroads Wheels for showing us how to use the spring compressor. Many thanks to Dave Guard for the media blasting. We’re having fun in this “messy” phase where everything is dirty and grimy.
