#4, Boge Turbos on front end. Oem Boge stuff on back. Various bushings were
done, this was about 3 months ago.  Ball Joints need to be done.

Rear Caliper arms were sticking. E-brake cables were replaced approx 5
months ago. Rear Calips might still need a rebuild (I left the e-brake very
loose and have been leaving it in gear).

Scary how you can point to the weak spots on my car without actually seeing
it! I'm very impressed.

Not a bad idea to put the 200q on jackstands. Unfortunately, space is a
premium. At the very least, I would have to keep it registered/insured or
rent a storage facility.

It *is* a shame to let it go, so this week's project is to look into the
options. Thanks.
