How many cans did you need to cover an axle? Are you going to paint the frame with it?

I'm having it done by a local sand blasting place that will be painting them with an epoxy paint. I'll post some pictures when done.

Cleaned the fuel tank and a few more pieces for blasting and powder coating. I decided to have all the parts powder coated instead of epoxy. My garage is starting to feel a little empty without all these parts!

Galvanizing

Took the frame and front bumper to New Jersey Galvanizing this morning. Very early start leaving the house at 3:30am. Had to pick up the frame from a building I put in the night before to avoid any morning dew. Arrived at Newark by 5:30am and by 6:00 am the the frame was off the trailer. Awesome process, just a little damage by the forklift but they had welders there to fix it. Now getting it ready for powder coating.

Thank you David, another step closer. This is the FINAL plan minus the black back door, going to keep that grey. I have the rims and just ordered the grill, now just a few more hours!

Powder Coating

Just finished unpacking the rest of the parts from powder coating. The frame is there now and should be back soon. After having some creative differences with my master mechanic (My Dad) we have a come to a decision on the rest of the build. I was going to use the original 3.5 V8 and add the edelbrock manifold and 4bl carb. I also purchased a newly remanufactured R380 from Ashcroft along with a V8 bell housing and clutch kit a couple of months ago. These plans are now changing for a LS3 with a 6L80E. I was also going to use a NAS factory style AC dash and custom fit a Vintage Air unit but that has changed to a new Puma dash/bulkhead w/ AC. In addition I decided to go with a Puma tub and all new Puma seats. So, I'll be posting more stuff for sale soon. I wonder if anyone else changes their mind on a build as much as I have!

Powder Coated Frame

The frame is back from powder coating. They did a great job of going over the galvanized frame. (double protection!) I'm going up to Rovers North on the 21st to pick up a ton of stuff so I can start putting this back together. I've been bombarding the For Sale section lately trying to make room for all my new stuff. RN has been extremely helpful as well as a lot of other members on here. I'll keep you posted.
