Nov 5, 2011 update on P71's 1973 AMC Javelin

Driver's Side Blacked Out

update image

I also finally got around to scrubbing, sanding, and painting the wheelwell on the driver’s side to match the passenger. Yeah, I know the suspension is still rusty looking. The brake replacement became a front-end rebuild when I figured out I already owned spares of everything (upper and lower control arms, upper and lower ball joints, uprights, and steering links). The lower control arms are getting beefed up, then I’ll paint all of the spares, and have new bushings (poly? graphite?) pressed in. Then I can disassemble what’s on the car and reassemble with the new stuff in one day. The car’s already in the air and have all the parts, so not doing it would have been dumb, especially considering the car has the factory 1973 ball joints on it…
