    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:

    Painted Spindle/hub:

    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
