I found some mid 80's g body front upper/lca's and spindles, with stock hubs/calipers on craigslist for $75

so I'm hitting the guy up about getting those in the next few days

the g body suspension will work on the S10 clip but I think the lca need to be drilled out for a 5/8's bolt vs 1/2inch or something like that
or put s10 bushings into the lca's

with those parts, I will still need to find some stock springs

I'm kind of at a stand still on the suspension until I get the front end on the ground to check for ground clearness
and then I can sit the motor into the frame rails and make mounts

I probably should order the poly bushings for the motor mounts

I'm going to order from them unless I find them local here in Tucson

this company is like the s10 kings of suspension
I used to order from them when they were called suicide doors

The front suspension did work out, someone got it before I could get over to the guys house

But I found someone selling lca and springs for $40

Here is a pic of the back side of the dash

went and got more cut off wheels and a 4inch wire wheel
and 25 lbs of sand blasting media

I wanted to buy two of the desk top sand blasting cabinets, and then cut one wall out of one and bolt the two together to have a huge set up and they are a single door, so I want to make it a double door and this cabinet can fit up to 26inches wide, so with two of them together that would be 52 inches

the dash of the truck is 44inches, so I think with all the small parts that need to be cleaned up, buying two cabinets at $230 bucks, those small parts will pay for the tools on their own

the dash, the window guts, floor panels and whatever else I can think of

I did no work on the 37 today,
I wanted a change
And the temp was 85 deg so I needed to hurry up and
paint a fender on my mini before it got to hot

I painted the front clip last December but it was about
60-65 deg, a bit on the cold side
The right side and center front came out good but the left side looked like

And then I had hip surgery at the end of January of this year
And I towed the 37 back and I was waiting for the temp
And my body

Ok not so much my body because I built the frame for the 37
Less then a month out from my hip repair

Anyways here's my 1984/85 B reg UK spec classic mini Mayfair
Also know as a Mini Cooper
It has a grp clubman front clip and a built Honda vtec drivetrain

In June their is a huge west coast mini show in Prescott AZ and then
The week after is another huge mini show in San Diego

Hey man.. i haven't been on here in a while... But I think I have the upper windshield section still from my second cab.. I will have to get my butt up in the attic and dig around.. If I have it, its yours if you want it.. just cover the shipping.. Ill let you know when I have verified I still have it.

Now that my brain is really warming up.. I think i have a full rear window cut out as well...
