finished "rustproofing" the underbody with eastwoods stuff, plus aligned the front with caster/camber adjustments, was going to test drive and check the toe but it started raining.
I did what Chryco suggested with the eccentric bolts and went fronts out/rears in.
Car was steering straignt, but the right front had too much negative camber. Hopefully I at least got it close.
After looking at the stock setup closely, am I right in assuming that the front eccentric bolt mostly adjusts camber and the rear bolt mostly caster??

Pulled the rear window and cleaned up the window channel.  The old owners used bondo as metal... :villagers: so now I have some more metal fabbing to do.

Gettine ready to pull the trunk pan, rear windon filler and fix the rust. :crazy:

Found a home for that 8-3/4 that came out of the stump-mobile....



We got all crazy and used REAL jack stands. The guys I got the car(s) from were VERY nice and lent the aid of their cherry picker as well....

Does that get a good turn out? Im going to my frist one in Marietta Ohio next weekend, loading up my extra E and B body parts, also have some cutlass 442 parts and etc

Is there a market for Mopar parts at these, do people buy them or am I wasting my time packing it all up there? Its not an all Mopar meet, so Im afraid nobody will be looking for anything.

also any idea on prices? Do ebay type prices apply or does it go cheaper. Ive done a lot of flea market shopping and selling and the like so I know what to expect, just never been to a car swap meet

It is the largest indoor swap meet in the country...I highly recommend you go to this one if possible.

There's a great market for these parts.  Pricing depends on the seller and the mood.

Got my top off my car and the new one setting on it and took some more chrome off and almost got a rear quarter off.  If it had been nicer might have got more done
Got a pretty good start on my M46 optioned Barracuda restoration but now it is on hold till I can gather more funds.  Still need a few parts for it.  SIU Graduate 75 AAS Automotive Tech, 94 BS Advanced Tech Studies, 1997 MSED Workforce Education and Development
