01-08-2011 10:17 AM Crossmember Welded
I got the crossmember and shock towers welded in and polished up.

The heat from the welding put the crossmember out of whack with the rest of the frame so I had to twist it a bit to get the crossmember parallel to the back half of the frame.

This put the side rails slightly out of parallel but I can correct for this with the body mount bracket locations.

01-04-2011 05:58 PM One Arm Done
I got both arms welded.

Everything twisted from the heat and needed to be beat on to get lined back up.

Had to redrill all the sleeves as well as the heat ovalized the sleeves.

I got the passenger side polished up , grease nipples installed and the bushings punched in.

12-25-2010 06:33 PM LOWER CONTROL ARM COILOVER MOUNTS
I got all the bushings and sleeves done for the lower control arms.

I started to tack the coilover mounts to the lower control arms.
Just need to cut some ribs to go between the control arm and the bolt tubes.
