Brake fluid. Put it on a rag and rub it till it's clean. Works great.

Simichrome is a great polish for plastics as well as metals.

I finished up the brake booster line, the rear half of the exhaust, then dropped the rear subframe out to rebuild it with all new poly bushings. I also got my new brake lines in!

On to the subframe. i didnt get alot of pictures because burning the bushings out leaves your hands pretty nasty haha ..

all new bushings and diff mounts, as these were shot. I was relived to see that the torque tube teeth were still good as well. Also ill be rebuilding the axles.

Once i had all that done i figured it was time to let my buddy mark take a look at the tune and get it dialed in for me. With the help of the guys at  haltech when stuff started acting funny we got it all figured out.. but first she needed a bath!

DYNO TIME! I actually hate dynos, it seems so harsh to hear the car just taking a beating while sitting still.. nothing compared to actually driving it haha.
