January 12, 2004: Well, I've got the suspension parts ready to install now.
They turned out glossier than I would have preferred, but that's what you get for doing an initial coat of chrome paint! I did have to pay to have the rotors turned to remove a spectacular amount of rust and I've installed new Porterfield R4S brake pads. The spending has begun but I figured both of those were reasonable expenditures. I am resisting the urge to put stainless steel brake lines on the car - at least for the moment.
Frame update: I've decided to have it shipped directly to my work instead of to Denver. This saves me a day of driving across mountain passes although it does almost double the cost of shipping. I think the total cost works out the same. It's being picked up tomorrow afternoon and should be delivered here on Monday if all goes to plan. Let's hope so.
