Once I get the hub assembly taken care of there will only be ONE thing standing in the way of getting the car running again: those damn exhaust bolt studs. I may just drill them out and call it good, though that's a lot of work. Unless mossymonkey's dad has a better idea. (hint, hint) ;-)
Now to try to put together an extra $60 (I think my dad's going to spring for the blower motor).
