Pulled my frame out of the warehouse and drug it home. Quite a battle to get it in the garage!

Going to be working on it pretty much all weekend, so expect some solid updates over the next few days!

Busy couple of days. Met with my painter to confirm plans to paint the frame (doing it in my garage on Tuesday), so until then, I can start working on redoing all of the wheel bearings and seals!

Oil is leaking from every single axle, so I figured it would be best just to dig into it. From my quick inspection, the interiors look good - no major rust or anything, so it should be in pretty good knick.

Like most everything, removing, wire-wheeling, painting/repairing, is the mode of operation. Replacing hardware, seals, gaskets, and bearings as we go.

... and finished up one side. What a pain, but now on to the other side!

Also replaced the front diff seal, as it was leaking a little bit.

Tomorrow - finish up the other side of the axle and possibly get the brake lines redone before the painting of the chassis at 6pm!

And now the chassis is painted. I'm going to hell for painting a galvy chassis, right?

Just wanted an extra layer of protection to prevent things from chipping/rusting, and my painter came to my house to do the job. Bonus!

Naah, probably smarter than not painting.

Looking good.

Good meeting you today, and thanks for the beer!

Slow night tonight, but still made some progress. Ran fresh brake lines for the rear axle, and changed out some small fittings.

Major surgery on the front axle in the last few days. Learning the ins and outs of swivel replacement is interesting to say the least. I'm only planning on keeping the main swivel housing, but pretty much everything else is being pitched (brakes included).

Note to anyone else tackling the swivels: make sure that you put the rear oil seal, gasket, and lock plate on BEFORE the swivel goes on, and further, make sure that the gasket and lock plate are oriented properly. IT WILL ONLY FIT ONE WAY

Still need to test the end float, torque down the bearing to get preload and setup all of the lock washer stuff, but this corner is almost done!

Hustled this evening and was able to get the whole right front rebuilt and cleaned up. Good thing for 15-minute enamel!

You can clearly see that the swivel on this side is shot.

Thanks. Slow. steady progress! I'll need to retorque a few things one I get the radial arms bolted up, but need to figure out if I want to buy the front swaybar mounts now and weld them on to the axle or wait a bit.

My gut tells me do it now.

Didn't do too much in the last 36ish hours. Got the wheels put on the front axle and the harness pulled through the chassis. The later took a bunch of time to get the fish tape fed through the right path in the chassis.

Tomorrow, I need to go to the post office to pick up my package of ball joint covers from Bulgaria (I kid you not) which I will attempt to use as a gaiter for the upper ball joint in the Boge unit. The proper part is no longer available (of course) so I'm going to try to improvise.

Assuming it works, I'll get the Boge all assembled and bolted up, just awaiting a replacement axle bracket from the UK by the end of next week with the latest round of parts shipment!

Eric, everything looks nice and clean and you are doing a thorough job. I would suggest turning that 3 way brake junction 90 degrees clockwise as viewed from the top. The flex should come out of the leg of the T and the lines to the wheels come out of the arms of the T. That way the lines themselves can be routed tightly along the casing so as not to get caught by on road or off road debris.

Interesting. I redid it exactly as it came off of the truck.

Had a bit of time in the garage to see how on-measurement the "hand built" Richards Chassis was. Well, turns out that the R380 crossmember was about 5-6mm too long. So out comes the angle grinder and welder!

You should have just spread the frame a bit with a jack!

Nah, that would be way harder and would have damaged the paint for sure. Remember, this frame has thicker steel than OEM, so I'm sure that some of the variability is associated with that.

Received the YRM front swaybar brackets and got them all welded up. The RHS bracket needed a little work to get it just right, but overall fitment is great!

The front swaybar setup (amongst other things) should be arriving tomorrow so we can keep plugging away. Chassis will be rolling this weekend!
