My sand blaster guy had to go into the hospital again, so I guess I got to paint off myself. My wifes brother said he did a couple of cars using a citristrip paint remover product. Smells like lemon. So I got a bottle and so far its working pretty good. The drill you see is a THORS SpeedDrill my DAD had when he was building tanks for WWII. I put a new cord on it , cleaned the comutators and she works like a drill.
This is one heavy duty drill with a half inch chuck. You dont what to use it around fumes the thing sparks when drillen. The pic of the rear spring is a new set I put on. Speedway had a garage sale on 3 inch lower super slide leafs, 70 bucks off. With the frame sitting there bare I noticed the driver side about inch and a half lower. So the old springs had to go.
When I was at the bone yard i took some brakets off a Ford Explorer for the front brake lines. At the time they looked as I might be able to use-um. That I did. I first tried to weld them on the frame, but my little wire welder didnt have enough poop. So I drilled holes and taped um for a #10 screw. Did good. I also drilled and taped the holes for the clips to hold the lines to the frame. I used a stainless braket kit from Speedway. Bad news from my sand blaster guy, he been in the hospital for a spell, lost 60lbs, looks it, so I guess thats why he handt been answering the phone. We talked for a while and he said he could do the cab in a couple of weeks. His prices doubled, I guess he got some Med. bills. Ill give him a go after a while and pay his price, wish I could give him more, he is a good ol boy. On that lact Pic I went over those welds another time and got a lot better coverage.
