Two days of 10 hours each day and progress is being made!

Pulled both rear shock/springs off. Sway bar end links removed.

Driver rear control arms: Pulled off, de-bushing’d, wire brushed, rust converted, and painted chassis black. Given poly bushings and re-installed. Not yet torqued - coilovers arrive tomorrow.

Passenger rear control arms: Pulled off, de-bushing’d, wire brushed, rust converted, and painted chassis black. Still need to have bushings installed then re-installation into car.

Didn’t really think I would be doing any restoration on this project but so far so good! #1 - screw this stupid tool:
