Today, I removed the old calipers, and it was a wise decision to replace them altogether, they looked worn, and the rubber seals were completely hardened out.

I also had a nasty fight trying to remove the front shock  Next try tomorrow, but with power tools

some small stuff which needs replacement:








the discs look nice, which is good since new ones are expensive for this car (but at least available):




the shocks sucked:



new KYBs:



installed at the front:



some more shopping:




4th time in a few months that I had to remove a brake booster, I'm almost getting used to the job:








the old calipers, new ones are on their way:

Today we placed the rear shocks, installed a nice horn cleaned and painted the swaybar brackets, removed tranny pan + gasket (to be replaced by a deeper pan with drainplug), and been looking for some more work (and found it )










I will also replace most exhaust brackets, looks neat at the road approval test if there are lots of new parts udner the car...

I thought it was just the print on my shirts deteriorating, they used to be in 3D but are 2-dimensional nowadays

OK now the Imperial is gone, I can now focus on the lesser Mopar to get it on the road.

The leaf springs and rear xle will be removed + cleaned up, and chances are that a rear disc setup will be installed.

The car is about as dusty as this topic was getting:
