Dropped the frame section off with the sandblaster today.  Hoping to get it back together this weekend

Wanted to say thanks to Brent for helping me out today.  We were able to get the frame back together and outer fish plates welded on.  The outer plates are 1/4", going to do 1/8" inner plates as well.

Haven't updated this in a while due to working 7 days a week for the past 6 weeks on 3rd shift.  I did manage to get my fuel cell mount done by chipping away at it a few minutes at a time.  Rear suspension is also done aside from shocks and proper shackles.




Built myself a cheap press brake for my HF press and used it to bend up the straps for the cell.

Bed sides at the minimum. But don't think I'm going to run the whole thing.  Probably just build a spare mount and some storage back there behind the cell.
