The crossmember you see in the back will be replaced with a CPP unit. Rivets are cut and that's ready to come out.


Firewall is bare. A lot of these holes will be welded up.


November 5,2010 Off to the sandblaster.
Hope the cab doesn't come back looking like a piece of swiss cheese...lol
Actually, the cab is extremely clean. 0 rust above the front windshield. 0 rust on the cab corners.
The worst area is where the windshield wiper motor mounts to the cab.
Weird place for it to rust!


Swaybar installed


New big brake kit ready to be installed (13" rotors)


Power steering box in place along with stainless steel brake lines

Waiting for the dropped spindles (back-ordered)


"Smooth" front bumper
November 19th, 2010


New tubular trailing arms versus the original style


New 'dropped' trailing arm crossmember. Note the exhaust cutouts


Start welding holes for a 'clean' firewall


Ready to prime 11/26/10


Zero rust - the black spot on the left is a paint spot that was left from the sandblaster


Primed


This is the original grill. I sanded it and chromated it - this grill only weighs 3 lbs.

Alot of the components I used were CPP including the tank, springs, shocks, brakes, trailing arms...
