Guess what showed up 45 min after power came back on

I bought a generator in 2017 when the state had a tax break for hurricane preparedness week in June.

Hurricane Irma hit in September and I was the only one in my small subdivision with a generator running.

My house had a generator hook up outside of the garage. I was able to run everything including the central A/C unit except for the electric stove. It was totally worth buying.

Got those damn subframe alignment dowels installed, and all but the rear lower bushing supports. Those are just going to stay off I think. No amount of prying or lube would get the small half properly seated. It's really tough for me to get leverage on them with just jackstands in my garage.

Subframe braces should be a snap to throw on tomorrow before I torque everything down. Then I can spend the rest of the week fighting the front brake calipers and wheel studs.

The bottle jack for my truck spare tire really saved the day.

They were a real bitch to get on. I used a spray bottle with water and dishsoap to lube everything up. I then partially threaded the screws and used the ends as a leverage point. It took some doing, but that allowed me to get them lined up.

Thanks for the tip. I'll probably take another stab at them when I install springs later on.

The car was up on blocks in the driveway for 3 days as I struggled to get the damn thing on. Day 1 I installed every other component of the Stop-the-Hop kit. Day 2 I finally finagled the the passenger side supports on after hours of cursing and trying different methods. Day 3 the driver side went right on in 5 minutes with absolutely zero issues.

You’re putting the IRS braces on now and then doing springs later? You’re going to have to install the IRS braces twice... I read that here a while ago and didn’t think I would be making any other changes to the suspension at the time. I ended up doing the springs and installing my IRS braces all over again. You may be aware but food for thought from someone in a similar situation as yourself. Good luck with your installs

She got strapped down and run out. Decent numbers. Fuel was causing it pull timing up high.

Went to install an oil separator... the hood was frozen shut.
Car thawed. Separator installed:

I started to take the stock decklid spoiler off tonight. Driver's side came up too easily; passenger side is stuck on hard. Need more heat and time.
