Kent that brings up an interesting point. Would it of taken less time to pull the body off, blast it and then por 15 rather than leave the body on? My 109 is due for a similar frame treatment and I'm reluctant to pull the body for fear ill never get around to putting it back on!

That would be the case for me! If you go so far as to pulling the body off, you should just have the chassis galvanised.

Probably not. We were able to disassemble, clean, and paint in just two full saturdays. It probably would have taken longer if we took the body off, but I imagine the reason for that would be because we would have taken advantage of the complete disassemble and done more work to the individual parts, effectively turning this into a full-on restoration.

Yeah we have already crossed the line of doing too much, but pulling the body would have been a lot more work especially when ship fitters sets in. If the engine and transmission were still out when we got it, it would have ben damned tempting because the bulkhead needs work. But the goal is to get it going with a decent foundation and nothing more. It can't live in my garage for too long and Kent wants to drive it anyway.

Will try make time for an update tonight, otherwise it will need to be tomorrow. Just wanted to say that we will be at it again tomorrow from 7-11am in order to have a realistic goal of getting the suspension put in next weekend and getting the truck running since I can't work on it the following weekend and the conclave is the next. If you have the time, please join us

Ok, I captured images every 3 seconds of yesterdays wrenching session and then came inside and deleted them afterwards (by accident - don't ask). So no time lapse this time, sorry.

Ron, Bill, Jason, and Jonesy came to lend a hand. Ethan did an amazing job of keeping himself entertained all day. Jason remind me next time to introduce him to my neighbors 4 yr old - they would get on famously.

Ron pegged away at the engine hookups and Jason and Bill rebuilt the steering knuckles and put the front axle back together. We ran into an issue with interference between the hub and the caliper which we need to solve, but it was otherwise a good days work.

Kent put POR15 on more stuff, installed the bump stops and tried to get the exhaust hooked up. The header has a larger output than stock piping, and is also pointed too close the crossmember so we'll take it to a muffler shop once it's running to get sorted, but we did get the existing pipe we had expanded so it would go onto the header and do some test fitting.

I am not sure what the hell I got done. Seems like nothing. I had to go buy some metric taps and other supplies (and lunch), and then a trip to the muffler shop, but don't recall getting much else done. Oh I got the rest of the wheel studs pressed in...

Jonesy stole some tires.

At the rate we are going, we are at risk of not getting this thing done by conclave so are putting some time in tomorrow. Tomorrow we hope to get the fuel tank in and the rear brakes buttoned up and if we have time, some more hookups at the engine, and I still need to get the a-arm ball joint pressed in. We can't install the suspension until the bushings come in.

Thanks again to everyone who has lent a hand.

Thanks to all the guys for coming to help out. Another great wrenching session in the books.

Only the cool kids run mismatched rims. And the lazy who don't give a damn what their rims look like.

You might be on to something about the shoes.

I don't think the project should be pushed to meet a deadline. Conclave would be cool but there will be other events.
