    Yesterday I finally got the old strut rod bushings out, I had to pry out on the rubber bushings & cut them with a razor knife & remove them. Then I was able to get enough angle on the sleeve & washer to grind off the end of the sleeve that was mushroomed over the washer preventing it from coming off.



    I feel like a kid on Christmas morning waiting for my new parts to arrive. The adjustable strut rods & power disc brake conversion kit from OTR Racing should be here today & on Monday.

      Nice to see it coming back together, Mike!
      Will you go with the OTR spring perches too?
