Not yet, I'm still working on getting the car where I want it mechanically. I also need to finish tuning it once I fully figure out how to do so properly, lol.

I had an old neighbor / coworker weld them up, he told me to just bring them to him when they were off and he'd take care of it!

I rushed myself when I installed them the first time, I just wanted to drive the car and threw them on. Not this time...

Nice guy and a good welder. Tired and getting sick last night. Didn't see that they are only welded on the inside. Why is that(just asking)?

The picture quality isn't the best, but they are welded all the way around. Once I get them smoothed out a little and painted I'll post a much better photo of them too.

LOL yeah that is a crappy photo. Oh well, I had to ask.
Edit:
No, just had to make sure there was not some info I missed. Something like if you weld it all around it will crack at the bushings.
:roll: For my lazy post!

He didn't weld them up too close to the ball joints, he wanted to make sure I could still remove them if they went bad. I really just need to take a better photo! Haha.

And I should probably just leave this here too... lol. As some already know, Chevy Hi Performance, March 2015 issue in the Reader's Rides!

I don't see that as a problem, but at least your sure that you can get the ball joints off. Sure seems like that would be a key place for welding. But when you think about it the main areas of flex are covered.

I've got some new ones ready to go on the car when it warms up. Sure would like to weld them, but they have everything on them.

I forgot about the rest of the photos I took when trying to decide which photo to enter for the calendar, so here they all are... God it makes me miss warmer weather. This single digit weather can go eat it!

The girlfriend also had this mug made for me for our two year anniversary. Don't know how I missed posting this!

Love your car. The hood needs to be painted imo

Some people like the hood, some don't. It doesn't bother me if people don't, it's just something I decided to play with until I can afford and justify an aftermarket hood. I was actually surprised how many compliments as compared to insults that I got, but I should have left it the clear coated bare metal. It gleamed like stainless in direct sunlight!

Maybe its just the fact that its rusty. Bare metal would be cool
