I can't believe it took calls to 5 wrecking yards to find me a control arm.. WOW

The new one is $200 to $300.. the used one is $75.... But I figured they where the same on all the trucks and vans up to 93...

I might get the Yeep truck back next Wednesday..... I don't want to guess how muCh this is gonna cost me...

I found out that the last owner made 4 trips in it. that's it... 3 to Florida and one to the Olympics in Atlanta.. so it has barely moved in 10 years... that probably explains why the ball joints are junk and the wheel cylinders dried out and leaked...

So we are thinking that the 63 000 miles on the odometer is original ....

The thing is... the way they are mad they hold water... it's not really the salt..

If they would have put drain holes in them.. the water could escape and not sit there to make rust... they have that lip around the outside that is just a water trap...

Well... it has a broke top control arm.. so it will get replaced tomorrow.. we found that out when we went to take the top ball joint out on the drivers side...

By tomorrow it will have 4 new ball joints, and two new rear wheel cylinders...

Now I find out I have to have an appraisal for tax purposes because it is over 20 years old before I can transfer it into my own name... grrrrr

Then that's it for safety... I did all the small things last week...

It has a holding tank for grey sink water.. and is not big enough for a dedicated toilter.. so it will have a portable one in it...

33 Gallons.. WOW  124.74 litres at 1.20 a litre... = $150 to fill up .. WOW

And i bet this 360 and thermobog will barely get 10 - 12 MPG I bet...

I spent the day underneath it.. the wheelwells in the rear needed some attention, and I have to put in a window regulator.

Next week it gets all four ball joints and wheel cylinders in the rear..

I hope maybe the end of next week I will be able to drive it..

The darn thing looks like it has a 30 gallon gas tank... it is behind the axle and is HUGE...
