Time to get this 300E on the ground

The final piece of the puzzle showed up yesterday and now it’s time to get it on the lift. I’ll post updates as I go.

awesome stuff!

You're not going to have fun installing all that stuff.

What springs you going to use? Or you air bagging it?

Did you roll the fenders yet?

I don’t think I’ll have to roll them but if they don’t clear enough then I’ll roll them as needed
