Last week end I spent most of the time working the yard. I did get to work on my car a little bit Sunday afternoon though. Here are some pics of the latest progress on the body work. It's mostly done ... Just a little bit more sanding Wink .

This weekend Leatherneck came over to help work on rear upper and lower shock mounts. Very Happy

Before he got here I disassembled the car so I could get caught up on some welding. It was a lot easier to do it this way I think.


I'm pretty much finished with the welding on the frame now... just some odds and ends, I have all the parts gathered now for the back soooo... on with the fab work........... Very Happy

David doing a little de-burring on the lower hiem on the shock...


Doing a little work on the upper shock mount...



Tacking the upper shock mounts...



Here is the lower mount... I went to the trailer supply store and got a shackle for a leaf spring... As you can see these are not fully welded yet, I will do that with the arms off.





Fitting it to the car. We tacked them to the car and then put the shocks on.
When we let the weight of the car on to them... mine fell off... Embarassed The upper will be double shear. I will post a few more pics as I can.



All done and out in the road Very Happy . The body isn't mounted yet so it looks a little lower than it will be when it's done.





Thank you very muck Leather, Rick and DG. You guys have been especially helpful in getting this big part of this project behind me. I have set a goal of the last weekend of June to have it done sooooooooo I better get busy again Cool

...And all that time I thought Leatherneck was the girl in the picture. I'd have needed some help, too if that was the case!!!

LMAO!

Looks super cool. You must be getting excited now. It's awesome when things get to the point where you can actually see the end of the road ahead of you.

Looks fantastic ... Very nice work.... Great attention to detail...

Love the dimple die & The "Squeezinator" …. Gota get one… “On The List”


Must be nice to have the expert help out there to give you a hand from time to time...

Very FEW of those helpers around here...
(Just all you long distance helpers ... and boy am I thankful for that.)

Anyway after going back through all 9 pages ...
I have one question... How many times have you installed and removed the body?

I’m betting it’s like a NASCAR pit stop by now…

Thanks for sharing your progress…Get R Done …. Soon …..

Grin N’ – Ear To Ear …
