    Thanks guys, I know I know a little condensed. Sure wish it had only taken a day to build!

    Starting to warm up here so should be able to start wrenching hopefully soon!

    Made some progress this weekend on the front brakes and spindles. I have collected all of the parts I need besides rear brake calipers. I got a rough set of calipers from the junk yard but after some research they are not easily rebuild-able so I am still on the hunt for those.

    Spindle/Hub From Junk Yard:

    Also wire brushed and painted the front rotors,over spray will be removed from friction surface before install:

    Coldish garage didn't help but got some runs in the paint on the rotor, not a big deal though since it is where the wheel sits and wont be visible. Will just quickly sand it flat before bolting the wheel up.

    Come on warm weather! :D

    Not a huge update but slowly picking away at refinishing parts.

    Painted front calipers:

    Which pretty much wraps up the front of the car, next will be moving onto the rear brake parts. And then putting everything on the car, assuming the snow even starts to melt anytime soon...
