That looks like some really cool (and expensive) stuff. Glad you're making progress.

Not too bad on pricing considering what all you get.

Still need to get a power steering rack from an sn95 or a Fox. If anyone has a spare one laying around let me know. I donít need it to be good . More or less to hold the wheels straight as long as it had tie rods with it.

Out with the old, finally got started on the rear section , Iím gonna cut out the inner wheel wells (I have new ones) and then Iím gonna get to grinding and scraping all the old rust, also gonna be removing all of the unnecessary brackets Under there I donít need. I also need to cut out the upper shock mount panel as well. That should be ..... fun..... more damn spot welds lol. I actually ended up having to cut the leafs themselves to pull out the diff and then cut the bolts from the brackets. It was fun haha. On to the next step. Once I get the rear end back under it and set up. Iím gonna install the sub frame connectors and then fully weld the floor in.

Then I gotta go back up front and weld the top of the fender mounting brackets from the apron to the cowl panel so I can put the fenders back on.

Slowly moving down the line.

Grind grind grind , got the rest of the leaf springs out and took out the bolts. Got as much of the surface rust off as I could today. Gonna take a smaller hand grinder to get more of the crevesis. Then I can move on to cutting out the shock tower panel. Once I get that all situated Iíll rust prevent the rest, prime it and then partially undercoat it.
