Next question.... whats the best method to remove the upper wishbone long bolt? Nut came off no problem, bolt different story....

Heat on the bolt / chassis OR
grinder to chop the bolt first to get the wishbone out of the way then heat / punch and hammer time?
Or some other voodoo method :D

Swoakes SS1 DET Sprint Car plan for 2019 on

Hi Steve

Look forward to seeing your ss1 going faster (in Josh’s hands)😀 next year.

Perhaps some lobbying with CM regarding handicap/ ftd bonus etc from Scimitar gang could see you back for 2020?
