The timing for the pan work is a little iffy...I want to get the IRS conversion done and then paint everything at once but it might not quite work out that way...flaky people are fucking up my progress.
It seems like the pan will get done/painted and installed along with the front beam, and then the rear end will get done later...I'm going to check with the shop to be 100% sure that's how it'll work out. Probably better because then I won't feel rushed to get it done all at once.
I dug through a pile of torsion bars and didn't find any for a Squareback. I decided on site to buy new spring plates so I left the dual spring plates there as well.
Later that day - after consulting with a few others, I figured out what I needed to buy and did just that...I have to get this thing moving forward in a big way. I found trailing arms in Indiana, and almost everything else was purchased new. All I need now are torsion bars and axles. I should have those secured by Monday.
Engine parts finally shipped and will arrive on Wednesday.
I'm looking forward to next week - lots of fun stuff coming to the door.
