It's been a few weeks since I spent any quality time with Grace because I've been living my life on the run, on a different couch or backpacking pad every weekend. I was finally back in town so I tied up the loose ends on the subframe connector job.

|Connector installed with cut bracket|
|Both sides of bracket spliced back together|
|Endcap installed on bracket|
|Cuts in floorpan to create clearance for subframe connectors|
|Welds tying subframe connector to floor|
|Removing crossmember material|
|Beginning of welds from end of subframe to the tab on the right|
|Welds extending from the tab to the end of the subframe to add rigidity|

Unfortunately that's all I have regarding Grace. It will be slow going for the next little while due to a lot of travel and lack of money for the old girl. But I do have a bonus section for you. These are the most interesting vehicles I spotted during the past weeks travels to Utah and Connecticut.
|This Plymouth Sedan was found on Center Street Provo, in front of my favorite Pizza place in the world.|
This one was love at first sight. She wasn't the least bit restored, and was perfect in every way.
