Guy's, On July 20th, A bunch of old cruisers who cruised Hopkins in the past, are getting a reunion cruise together in Hopkins, MN there is a facebook page dedicated to this. We already have the blessings from the mayor and the local police. The Cruise will begin at 6pm, after the Hopkins Raspberry festival ends.
I think this would be a great place to meet each other, cruise around and there are plenty of places to relax and chill! and it's on a saturday

Spent last night and a good chunk of today working on the bucking bronco.

Here's the war zone....it's times like these I hate living in a shitbox with no garage. Getting the spindle off was easily the most frustrating part....I eventually went Clarkson on it and beat it to death with a 5lb hammer and a drift/wedge to separate the rust fusion with the steering knuckle.



Took the right front axle out because I noticed this U-joint was bad. And boy was it BAD. It's pretty much metal on metal all the way around. The worst part was the retaining clips had rusted together so pounding them out was quite fun....lots of pb blaster and wire wheel on that one.



Steering knuckle and right front axle out....note the upper ball joint stud....had to take the angle grinder to it after everything else failed. It had, you guessed it, pretty much rusted completely together with the camber bushing. It's getting all new balljoints anyway.



So yeah, that happened. Gonna press out the old u-joint and balljoints. New ones on order from Rockauto....then we do the other side.

Also working on some minor cosmetic stuff and interior issues. Pulled the dash and steering column covers apart to fix an intermittent ignition switch that was causing my radio to turn off every time I turned the wheel. Also got some 4x4 emblems and a new Ford oval for the tailgate and fenders off some old F150's at the junkyard. Gonna hold off on those till after paint though.

I went to get my tires rotated today and when they lifted it up on the lift one of the rear leaf spring brackets was rusted and busted off.
