Re-taped all the holes and installed the support bracket to the chassis. Then installed the steering box and pitman arm. Time to start assembling everything for the last time hopefully.

10-02-2010 02:53 AM Chassis Painting
Painting started off very well all was looking good until I sprayed the clear lacquer on I was following the instruction form the paint shop what a disaster in places the paint just peeled off like a banana skin.
Went back to the shop to talk about what went wrong he said painting is always hit & miss and he would do it for me of course for big bucks. Made me think he gave me the incorrect info in the first place. Sanded the whole chassis back and started from scratch it came out heaps better this time, I left it a few days between final & clear coating wet sanding between.
