    I've decided to call her Lucinda.

    She's Lucinda steering
    Lucinda body mounts
    Lucinda wiring

    The more I look the more things I find...

    Fingers healing nicely - in case I didn’t mention that, broke my ring finger on the winch install.
    Bit grabbed and twisted the drill, jacked the finger. Didn’t know it was broken until the next day, never seen a human finger that color :lol:
    Found some more oddities today while tinkering on Lucinda.
    The body mounts are really a mess. Almost all are only hand tight. Some are sitting on small channel iron spacers some are not. The ones on the frame in front of the door openings don’t touch anything.

    I pulled the monstrosity of a rear bumper off and found the rear body mounts are also damaged and not actually connected.
    I noticed the brackets for the tail lights were still behind the back panels and a small radius crack opened up easily into the original hole when properly motivated with a small ball peen hammer. They were just covered and bondo’d over. 126A7D7A-6B19-4D3F-8159-6B4E045A00E3.jpeg 9FE5E434-9F31-40D2-854D-D007E10838FC.jpeg
    This old girl’s gonna need a little more work :)
