More Suspension Time

On the eve of July vacation week in the pouring and incessant rain, I have talked Linda into helping me update my blog. If summer ever comes, it would be nice to take a break from cars in general. So, the Rambler is the first wave of the furloughs. But we did make progress recently (see below). I am grateful for all the advice I've received from Robert B. and assistance I've had from Dave W. & Huw P.

John,
Its refreshing to see the quality work progressing on your project. The detail work on the trunnions really sets it off.
Looks like Dave has a handle on the welding.
