Yes, many thanks to Nick and Clyde; absolutely could not have done this on my own, and it was really cool to able to take advantage of Nickís knowledge, garage, and tool collection (all of which are pretty formidable).

Havenít had a chance to drive the car much but it feels great so faróa lot tighter, and definitely firmer, but not bad at all.

Looks like fun! I recommend double checking the caliper bolts.

The look on Josh’s face when he was pulling out of the garage and remembered that we’d spread the calipers on all four corners was priceless.

Yes I had that realization as the pedal went straight to the floor and the car did not slow down at all.

Fortunately for me and Ks car, I was going pretty slow and remembered to use the handbrake.

The look on his face when I snapped the bolt on that brace wasn’t bad either.

Fortunately, Nick's garage opens on a very flat alley.
