Woo-hoo! Just dropped my '77 Ghia off at the shop, don't know how long they'll have it...I need to take the key down to them before I go to work in an hour or so. Also refreshing them of the details. Getting the strut rod mounts replaced, finally, and a few holes underneath patched up. So hopefully "Phase One" will be well on it's way this week.

I don't even wanna get into Phase 2 and 3.

Indeed.

Day one update: Shop owner called me and informed me that he's almost there. The passenger side strut rod mount came off without a hitch, and was replaced fine. He ran into some trouble with the driver's side mount, though. A nut inside the frame rail wasn't cooperating, so they had to cut the rail open and get to the nut. In doing so, the fuel line needed to be moved, and unfortunately since that's so old, it broke. So he's got a new fuel line on order for me, and the mounts are now in place.

Cutting the frame rail open though...that's making me a little uneasy...

As long as he welds it back on well, you'll be all set.

The car's back in my possession. It's better now too, don't have the clunking to deal with anymore when I apply the brakes. Whew. Only cost $550 for the job, so that's a big plus. Now I'll get to take 'er out a little more often.
