Not much to report for the past week (judging by the activity of this thread, not likely a problem ).

I stopped by yesterday and the car is "almost" apart; all the trunk trim has been removed and the bumper and tailights were also removed to save them from damage while the work takes place.

They still have to drop the subframe, not so much for their repair operation, but as a favor for me to be able to pull out the old subframe bushings and replace them with the Ireland ones. You've got to love that kind of cooperation

They also discovered that the differential mounting ear was starting to crack (remember that this car was only autocrossed just a handful of times and never by Sue).

Just a couple shots that show the naked trunk before work commences.
