Since my last post I have made more progress on the Laredo which has been knick named "Reload".
I replaced the PNP switch so the backup lights will work. I overpaid $24.00 for the switch.
I picked up a set of barely used Firestone "Destination LE 2" tires for $150. These will be upgraded as soon as I decide what size and type of tire/wheel I need.
I installed Moog sway bar links in the rear and have the front links going in this week. $44.00.
I cut all of the rust away from the rocker panels, replaced the inner rocker supports and formed new rockers. There will be sliders or bars installed later on. $40.00
I installed new hinge pins in my drivers door, and it is as tight as new.$1700
All of the fluids are going to be changed this week.
This is what it looks like so far.
The to do list is as long as my arm. I will update as I check off the problems solved.
