Right. I'll tell ya what though, grinding rivets off that hold leaf spring brackets on is tedious as hell. the torch removed 6 rivets in less time than grinding off one rivet. So if your time is valuable like mine is I would rather spend a few bucks and be more productive in a shorter time frame.

Not much progress lately but did get some parts.


Look for some serious progress this weekend. Glen says he's gonna help so that means double progress right? I'll be laying frame in no time.

I got all the link tabs welded on so that part is done. Now it's on to mounting bags and figuring out where and how to mount the compressors and tank. Then it's just wiring, plumbing and doing the front.

No for now it's just some plates for the top and cups to fit into the spring pocket, the bag just replaces the coil. It wont go super low in the front without some serious modding but I just want to get rolling for now.

Small update, I've been slacking on motivation on week nights to work on this but did do a couple things.

Mounted some shocks


got some new brake lines bent, cut and flared on the rear end


I did order the tubular front crossmember, tubular a arms and rack and pinion steering setup. build time is 2-3 weeks so I got some time to get the motor out and get all the old front suspension off. The engine has been leaking oil for what looks like a decade so cleaning that thing is gonna be fun!!

I have a brake line bender, I didnt even get it out cuz I'm gonna paint over them and cover it all up. Thanks for the offer though, I thought about being super baller and doin up some combo of stainless and steel braded lines, lol. I'll do that when I go with a rear disc setup.
