Thanks for the update!  I'm sure you'll get it all done - with plenty of time to spare  ;)

Those new mirrors look really nice!

I reluctantly need to do my front end too. Not looking forward to it!

At the risk of eating my words later, so far it's going pretty smooth.  It's a big job of course, but not as bad as I had feared before starting.  It will be nice to have it 100% done, and all back together.  This is not a true restoration project, so I will clean things up and maybe hit them lightly with some paint but nothing too crazy.  I won't be scrubbing everything with a toothbrush, since it's just going back onto trails and will get mud caked again.

Of course, if something breaks again I will know for sure that it's my driving.   :banghead:

Or Thom's driving.

Well, I didn't want to blame my co-driver for all the rough miles on the first trip.  But he's good for half at least, hah!  I broke the front axle, but he found the hidden puddle pit that took out the control arm bushings.  I'd say it's about even.

Although, when they invented the phrase "beat it like a rented mule" they were thinking of Thom's driving.

as soon as I get the chance I'm going to see if the mirrors from a late 80's grand marquis will work on an Eagle or not.  One of the yards here have several of them but they have a serious weed and sunflower not to mention hornets and snakes. So until I can actually get close enough to the cars to get the mirrors off one I ain't the chance of getting bit or stung.
