I wanted to paint crossmember first. Original was still in the Eagle, so I had to get an other one. I did some searching and found a much better one.



Almost rust free but dirty...



Did some cleaning and painted it. Not perfect colormatch, but close enough.



Found also better right wheel hub. Bearing of that original hub sounds bad, it has been changed sometime in the past (in Switzerland).

Done some cleaning... And I had to take a "new" strut rod from my other Sport Eagle... Threads had gone.
Found an upper radiator hose.. it may be from my V8 Eagle... like that painted heat shield... But it did not fit this -80 sport wagon... Had to restore original junk.



I got it repaired...



Upper mount is different and this has that round cut in its side...
