Well........ I am back at it!




The frame has been sprayed with chassis saver and is ready to begin assembly! Next is the axles and springs! Should pick up the pace!

Looks good. Did you blast that frame? How does the Chassis Saver go on? Spray can or gun?

Frame was wire wheeled 3 times! Once before accident again shortly after and then again just before I sprayed the Chassis saver on! I was happy with the finish the night I left but while it dryed it lost sheen and ended up dull in areas, apparently I applied it too heavy! I'm more concerned with corrosion then appearance any way so no worries!

Good to hear you're doing as good as you are and it sure does beat what the alternative could have been Is the shop still being sold?

good for you Mong! The older we get, the harder it is to make it back to full capacity but attitude makes up for some of that.

look forward to your next attack... on the Bronco.

Frame is looking really good. Inspiring patch work as well. I'm glad you were able to push threw rehab and get back to it. Subscribed to what I'm sure will continue being a great build.

My D60 was a dually unit so I had to remove the wheel hubs and swap with another D60 I have, it took 1.5 hours just to get the wheels off, I blew up 2 1/2" impacts and finally ended up using my 3/4" Impact. What a PIA.....
