One side done, now I need to wheel the snot out of it to see if my assumption is right.
Might tie the other side together this weekend

Did the crawl around today, Tinkertoy is no worse for wear.
Finished the other side of my girdle tinker project. Time will tell how much of a difference it makes. As it stands it seems to be an improvement.

Beautiful 80 degree day is a pleasure to be out in the sun doing some tinkering. On to some buggy tinker time

You even painted it. Don't be afraid to hit some of those other front end parts!
