An industrious dunce is often more successful in life than his learned neighbor.

 The dry fit today went okay - I've had to let go of a lot of my obsession over parts fitting perfectly to get here.  The right side fits really well and after I take this all apart, paint the spring plates and put it back together, it should be good to go.

I have one spare spring plate in the event I somehow screw up the two that are currently on the subframe.  The one I worked on yesterday is toast and has been tossed into the scrap bin.
A loose fitting of the trailing arm, urethane bushings and nuts/bolts.

Doing this conversion was a lot more work than I'd planned - especially where modifying parts that are marketed to 'fit' together was required.

Next steps - I'll take this apart, prep the spring plates for paint and, weather permitting (supposed to be 63ºF on Tuesday), I'll get them painted and then let them dry/cure over a long period of time while I sort out the pan situation.
