Not much progress but at least the IRS cradle is ready.
I'm drilling and tapping all the control arms for grease fittings. Once that is done, I'll install the new bushings and reinstall them.
Since I was released back to unrestricted work, I've been working 70+ hrs a week.

I completely hear you on the zero budget. The Mrs is pretty strick about the usage of funds so I've had to be creative, trade work for parts, barter, sell parts I didn't need, you know, the usual suspects lol
