what to do with an opportunity?

im in the middle of fixing my frame meaning ill have the body off it...also im going to have to re center my engine...so ill be disattaching lots of things and exposign a lot of areas im not used to.

while i havde the bod off and the moving the engine around what do the experienced D90 mechanics think I should do while i have the opportunity with the body off?..should I change anything? be aware of anything special but basically just wondering what I should do to my truck as far as maintanaince while i have the opportunity...

thx everyone

Galvanize that frame and anything else you can!

Curious why the engine needs centering?

Galv the cage pieces that attach to the frame
Stainless brake and clutch lines. Gas tank is plastic so it should be fine. I would do a new fuel pump though if you are doing all the lines.
Get a galv or alloy gas tank skid cradle.

Not sure how you are removing the body but if you are taking the bulkhead off separately I would fix even the slightest rot. Possibly even rhinoline the outside sections that would be under the hood.

Also since the engine is out I would be inclined to get ceramic manifolds.
