Picking up the new rim from powdercoat tonight, here's a better pic of the destroyed one. Think I'm going to make a patio table out of it.

Got new FK spherical bearings to do the yearly rebuild on the knuckles.

Sent the ORI's in, one of the rears locked up but it wasn't the typical issue. Mine was a lower cap o-ring not the main seal issue like many have had. All four are completely rebuilt and upgraded to the new seal style, and I had them add some more dampening to the rear 16" struts. They should be back tomorrow I think. Also have resi's to add to all four corners.

Built some fancy tool holders for a buddy, cut a few extra out, keeping one for myself.

Hopefully going to try to straighten the hood where the tree I hit broke off and landed on it. Luckily it hit the chassis tube, if it would have been back 2" my brand new radiator would be toast in that area.
