Reconstructive surgery

 So we continue making our rounds,  the patient, a 1970 S that has been in a coma for the last 14 years.

A physical examination reveled that the front suspension pan needs to be replaced, no donor parts for this procedure, they have to be brand new.

We'll start this operation by removing all that's in the way, the gas tank has been sent to the boilers, and new filters and gaskets have been ordered.  With all obstacles out of the way, we start cutting all rusted metal, and get it ready to fit the new metal.

We have done this many times, but it's never safe to say that it takes this much time, after all, a 41 year old may have been around the block a little.

During the operation, we found that it has kissed a light pole, though the damage was repaired, the removal of the old part is going to take a little more loving.

 When it comes to parts, every one has their loyalties,  some to brands, some to names, and I always hear that they all fit real good............If the car was an inch narrower ....maybe.
But this is what we do,  we'll make it work.
