Didnt snap any pics, but i did get work done. Of course, it was not without the usual setbacks. I'm now playin the game of "i took these parts off the car two weeks ago, where the hell did i put them...." I spent a good portion of today trying to track down where i put the front shock forks. They still havent turned up yet. And three broken bolts in the rear of the car laughed at my drill. Oh well, i did get some things accomplished.

this is getting more than annoying....i cannot locate my shock forks anywhere. i took them off the car a few weeks ago, prepped and rust treated them, painted them, then put them in my garage. then that is the last i can remember seeing them. i'm considering picking up another set off ebay so i dont hold myself up, but i know as soon as i do that i'll find them

Alright, time is not on my side now that december is basically here. My goal now is to just get the car rolling to put it in the garage. I'm going to start putting things on the car just for moving purposes and then install them 100% once its under cover. I will have the front of the car done today. I did run into a brake line problem on the passenger side yesterday that i will need to address when its in the garage. The brake line nut is rounded and i cant get it to separate from the brake hose. danteisme's 1996 DB8-Found and Rebuild Thread-imageuploadedbyag-free1417360716.130970.jpg

This looks like it will be a huge pita

my Sunday progress. ran into a few issues, the main issue being that rusted up brake line that i will need to address eventually. the other being the position of the shocks in the spring assembly. my air compressor is dead so i assembled the springs at my parents house. well, now that i have put them on the car, the brake hose mounts arent quite where they need to be. i'll get that straightened out when the car is in the garage.

need to get the rear trailing arms assembled and throw the wheels on and get a team of people to push the car up the alley and back into the garage. i'll just zip tie up the parking cables and anything else that happens to be hanging down not bolted where it should be yet. once it is under roof, i can fix the little issues with the suspension and then really tear into the rest of the car.

also got most of the garage ready for the car. most of the wiring is finished, still need to reboard the one section by the breaker box, i fixed all of the leaks in the siding, just need to clean out a few misc. things and put some more stuff on the second floor of the garage (dear god is that second floor handy lol) might need to scoot the bikes over a tad more too.

stupid question because i cant remember now....the parts have been off the car for so long. the brake hose mounts on the front shock assemblies, do they face towards the front of the car or towards the rear of the car? i want to make sure i get it right when i get the car in the garage so i dont have issues routing my brake hoses later.

got some good news relating to getting parts. found out this week our xmas bonus will be going into my bank acct, and next month i just realized i get 3 pays instead of the usual 2. both of those combined i'll be able to get a lot of the bigger parts on my list and a new clutch for my truck (its not happy right now). none of this helps me get the car in the garage faster, but who doesnt love getting parts for a build?
