Made a quick lightbar cover and it doubles as a license plate holder.

That's one way to use what your taxes are paying for

Took the car out up on a local trail again. It did great except on the way home. The trail is pretty rough and I'd guess 10 miles ea way. On the way home we had gotten back to the street and came around a turn to a big deer. And as a deer must do it's deer thing it jumped out in front of us at 50-55mph. I hit the brakes and it promptly locked all 4 wheels up. We slid for 50ish feet and somehow missed the deer. After that though the car would shake the left front violently over 25mph. I limped it home and found the left lower control arm ovaled out the bolt holes and had come loose. With the lightly bent wheel it would make it wobble and shake. I tightened the bolt as best I could and it fixed it. I think slamming on the brakes did it with the big tires.

I am currently on the lookout for a shell so I can mockup a new front suspension. I found a 92 wagon for 750$ that I'll keep a eye on to see if it will drop in price.

One of the highest points in Sandiego

Fortunately, you are working with the 700/900 platform rather than the 200 series one, so a shell should be cheapish...

On your phone (if I phone) you select the favorite. Middle bottom. Then select the one you want to save

Made a night run to the desert and all was good. Even cruising around with the ac on because it was 104° at 9:00pm. Until I hit a few bad bumps and shattered a wheel. The wheel then broke my tie rod off the knuckle.

Edit: not one picture is the right direction lmao. I'll fix that later.

The whole front end was tearing apart. I added “braces” kinda booty fab but it’ll all get changed eventually.
