Front suspension done!
Well, today was a great day! I went to the local independent parts store (great service) to get various consumables for the build. Got back around 10:30 and started working around 11ish. I started on the right (drivers :-)) side and installed the lower control arm, then the upper, then the shock then.... remembered that the 2012 car has new headlight brackets that mount at the top-front mount of the upper control arm... yay, I've already torqued that bolt! Out it comes, headlight bracket on, re-torque bolt, good. Then I installed the upright, easy... sorta. After the right, moved on to the left (repeat). The main annoyance was the sway bar, it was very hard to install, but I got it in the end :-D.
