    Gonna start cleaning up the diff on the outside getting ready to take it apart to check her out and get her cleaned and sealed back up. Still waiting on t3 to send my rotors and spacers to finish my front hubs...god they are slow.

    So got some more stuff done today. Gonna start sanding the hood tomorrow I decided I'm going to keep the cowl hood. So time to fix the fiberglass areas. I was in harbor freight today and the sandblasting cabinet I wanted had the wrong sticker on it. So instead of 179 i got it for 119 plus 20% off that. Score!!

    So I got a decent bit of stuff done today. Cleaned the front hubs, cut the dust shields painted both, got my front and rear control arms buttoned up. Here are some pics. My hubs were terrible

    Looking for advice before I buy new wheel studs. I am replacing all 16 of my studs during the resto. Should I go with the OEM length or should I purchase the extended ones. Need a answer pretty soon as I am almost done with the front suspension. I will be postings a bunch more pictures in the next couple of days. I ended up taking my rear stuff to a local machine shop and they got the spindle pins and all the bushings out for 40 bucks so I am happy.

    I will be using ls1 accessories for my swap. And I believe I'm going to go with the cxracing full kit. But I'm extremely far off from that point in this build.

    I was going to go with fully adjustable ones. But I did pros and cons and it's just not worth 500 extra on top of this build for a Cruze around car.

    So I took a sawzaw to the first pin. It's almost like it's welded in the strut tower piece. So I'mma get some heat on it and try to get it expanded a little and punch it out. Any tips on those bushings?

    Track I tried to use my press but I can't get it level so it isn't really working. I only have a small 12ton manual press. Would it be worth buying the tool for 60 bucks?

    Yessir the pin is out. And I have been putting penetrating oil on it for about 3 days or so. And yeah the mount kinda blew my mind as to why haha.

    Alright guys I have two questions I've done alot of research on the spindle pin, mine will not budge an inch even with a hammer, how should I get them out.. Second on this diff/suspension mount have y'all ever seen them wrapped before like in the pic.

    Thanks Richard and track.im trying my best to work on it as much as I can before I deploy in July because it's going to sit for awhile and I'd like it to be in a good place before I leave so I can stockpile parks while I'm gone.

    Another update. Ordered new front rotors from a 300zx and the spaces from T3 and got the new s12w calipers from O'Riley. Plus all of the suspension is off and the diff is out. Ordered all new red poly bushing which should be here soon.

    Got a good bit of stuff done to the car since the last post. And hopefully all the suspension and the diff will be removed tomorrow.

    Socorob I am going fuel cell. I hate that spare tire well. Waste of space. Thanks for the offer. I need to find a matching lock set for my doors and hatch.
