    Got her back on the road after installing new:
    1. Clutch (reason for the service outage)
    2. Billet steel flywheel (SHO Source)
    3. Three flywheel guide pins (they were missing and caused the clutch to shudder on take-up and fail in 7K miles)
    4. R & L lower control arms*
    5. Passenger CV half shaft*
    6. SHO-spec steering rack*
    7. Power steering pump*
    8. High pressure PS line
    9. Driver side tie rod end*
    10. Front strut rod bushings, poly*
    11. Heli-coils in stripped, lower oil pan to MTX bolts
    12. Gloss black paint on subframe
    13. Front struts
    14. Front strut mounts*
    15. Front sway bar links*
    16. Rear strut mounts*
    17. Rear strut rod bushings, poly*
    18. Rear sway bar links, poly bushings
    19. Alignment
    20. Wheel balance

    * Replaced by LLT warranty from AutoZone or O'Reilly Auto Parts (thank you)

    And a few other incidentals along the way in refurbishing the car to make 500,000 miles possible. Now I will be addressing the aesthetic aspects to help her look as young as she feels now that the suspension is tight and quiet and the clutch is buttery smooth again.

    The SHO had been parked since August while waiting for the time from Thanksgiving to Christmas that I could have it on jack stands in my garage for the extended service and refurbishment. It's good to have her back!

    And my SHO was just one of six cars I worked on while I was off for Christmas. My daily driver BMW 335i got some attention too: new Bilstein B8 front struts (to match the rears), strut mounts, sway bar links and thrust arms (equivalent to the SHO's front tension struts, but beautifully cast in aluminum) and the low-pressure, in-tank fuel pump (access to the tank is easy through a 10" plate under the back seat).

    Wish we could get Bilsteins for our newer MY Fords :( Such a dearth of options, and not that difficult to develop!

    In my book you are a Superman :hail::hail:

    Spent money on mine for the first time in a few years. Not that it wasn't needing it, but due to a bad heater core, a strange scraping noise from a front wheel well and the oil lamp flickering, it has been growing Moss more than anything else. Time to dust her off and replace that heater core!

    With help of a fat anti-sway bar, the no-jack-required 6:00am brake job.

    Was ready to put on a new hose and caliper, but only needed replacement of stuck slider pins. I mis-remembered the caliper and hose I had was for the other side, anyway.

    - add to that a steering spindle with Timken wheel bearing.

    Time to do something with the 1992 SHO back seat I've been storing for about 16 years...

    [​IMG]

    Noice?

    Hint #1. Look at how the back part of the seating area panels gets wider. On 1993-1995 the leather panel arrangement is reversed, where instead the front is wider...

    Hog rings all removed around the edge. The seat has additional through-the-cushion retaining at the seam across the seating areas to get to, but none on the sides of the panels.

    [​IMG]

    Hint #2:
    [​IMG]

    Some passenger side foam, which doesn't get sat on as much...


    Hint #3:

    I opened the garage and smiled, because I see no more chrome.
