    That is good to hear that the ins took care of you right away.

    That is strange that a mech shop took so long.

    I would not install the poly bushing in the control arms.

    Poly tends to bind in moving part and also tend to squeak.

    Finally I have door pulls. I was surprisingly harder than I though it would be to install these.

    Just received my front license plate bracket. I do not like it. I will not have a front plate on unless I get a fix it ticket. 5CE5D0D4-FDD9-45CD-B8BD-71483544AD42.jpeg

    I feel for you, front license plates are such an after thought. I am lucky New Brunswick did away with front plates last year.
    Your Camaro really looks good

    Is there another way? Better way? I love the blue/yellow plates and want to show them off.

    How bad was the rubbing issue? Is it a steering thing or does it rub when you hit bumps? I'm curious cause I'm getting ready to buy some front springs for my 78.

    Nice car by the way!
