Ready for paint
What did you paint it with?
It’s not painted yet. Going to zinc prime it then shoot it with enamel Just got done strapping it with 3/16 steel and new hangers and mounts Also straitened and trued it up
What steering are you going with? I see a hole in the crossmember for a Saginaw setup but no mount on the frame.
It’s a Saginaw gonna paint first its all fitted up just not on yet
Scared to scratch it but started the assembly Gonna be a great project
That looks great!
Looks great. I have three questions. Did you straighten it at home? If so how? Why did you decide to strap and not box?
I'm trying to come up with a plan for mine.
That looks nice. The Red really makes the frame detail easy to see.
Thanks guys. I did straighten it at home and have some pics I can share you might find the method a little crude but I managed to get the results I was hoping for, as for the decision to strap rather than box that was easy. Looked for years for the right jeep project every newer boxed factory frame had rotting problems but the older c channel frames were in much better shape. The sides of my frame looked to be in great shape so being a 3/16 frame I strapped it with the same. I also 3/16 plated the front crossmember and wrapped it onto The strapping. The two motor mounts were cut free and re welded to the new strapping My front and rear shackle mounts were junk as were the shock mounts so it was easy to weld new ones onto the new steel. All in all I am very happy with how it turned out
Thanks for the info and please keep the pictures coming. Again, great job.
Things are going together well. Waiting on a few parts but all the running gear is fitted up. Body mounts fabricated and will be installed this week. Hope to mount the tub before the end of the month. Time to decide on front discs or not.
Hey guys anyone have info or a picture of where the spring and link for a t18 emergency brake hooks to
Mine didn’t seem to reach anything that made sense. Ended up hooking to rear body support. Looks and works great.
There is a thread on here that answers that exact question. I’ll do a search.
Isn't the return spring internal in the drum ? That arm is for the cable
Thanks for the video. Build Typical jeep rigging no engineering with that set up
Wired and fired up getting close just power steering pump and bracket some miner tuneing then a white knuckle ride.
