My 66 GT is back on its wheels after installing all new front suspension parts. However my polyurethane sway bar bushings are defective. I purchased them from Rockauto on a closeout deal however both Raybestos polyurethane bushings crumbled overnight. They fit the sway bar properly and I did not tighten the bolts yet, planning to do that today after the wheels were on the ground and ride height correct. Got out to the shop this morning and found blue rubber croutons all over the floor under the car.

Planned on installing the dual exhaust reinforcement plates in my 66 fastback. First I have to weld a couple small cracks around the seat belt hole i found while cleaning. What fun. Back to installing sound deadener and cleaning for now .

Got the dash apart on the Emberglo car to prep, gotta mask everything and repaint for new chrome.
Got the gauges cleaned, needles repainted, woodgrain bezel on. Almost to the halfway point.
Got the Nightmist car parts out of my truck bed, engine and trans are in dry storage & everything else in the car's trunk. All the interior is stripped. Got a replacement right door glass partially in.
Thinking about taking the Turquoise car to the local cruise-in to let the kids see some other people's toys and keep them off the video games and cell phones. Lots more pics in my Emberglo and Nightmist threads...

Looks like it all fit as planned.
The 18x 8.5s for the front only clear the ball joint by 1/8"
