    Got another decent size order in. Plus looking for some advice. I'm going with a 16x8 0 offset wheel. What is the best tire combo to run I'd like to go beefier in the rear. So floor pans and frame rails are at the house to start on when I get home. Plus those wheels will be ordered next month. Then a mandatory sandstorm pic.

    Got two packages in for the great work to be started when I get back to the states. Sway bars. And goodies to rebuild my r200 and my new bearings and seals for my rear hubs

    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?
