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.
Well I tried to get this done, but it turns out the Grand kids end up on the All-Star Baseball team and have more games for us to watch. Anyhow I bought some MP-200 Direct-to Metal primer with activator. The application went ok. After these pictures I sanded all the fenders and a lot of the small dings and dents went away. There still some small ones left that I'll have to get after probably grind off and fill? I found that you must clean the spray gun right when your done because that primer sets up pretty fast. And it did sand very easy as advertised.
Put the fenders back on for final smothie work. The joints filled in nice by the head lights. No buldge out on driver side lower panel. Hope to primer sat. Got a primer that goes on bare metal and is high build and easy to sand. Working on rear fenders also. I want all fenders and running boards ready for paint.
