Not sure about you but I tell mine it just as effective and more cost effective then Psychotherapy. Furthermore there is something to show for it after the money is gone. :wink:

Is that the same car?? Are you sure it is not one of the 'others' you are actually showing us? Cannot believe in the difference in the front end suspension and brakes, knuckles etc. Where has all the rust gone. Most impressed!! :D

It's incredible

Here are the before and after.

Kudos to Sonic for unloading the 1998 carcass for cheap which made this a Labor only endeavor, pretty much

Nice work! How much is left of that black '98? It must be picked pretty clean by now. Did you use the control arms from that one for the green one? The passenger side control arm is only 2-3 years old, not sure about the driver side.

The local University is sending Anthropology students over to study the remains for field work...
