front end complete(so far)

PLEASE READ ALL PAPER WORK WITH YOUR NU PARTS Well everything is on the front end as far as I can go. You needto purchase or make your own struts in place of the springs IF your building your car from frame up.CE say NOT TO INSTALE SPRINGS UNTIL CAR IS COMPLETE!!!. So next for me is to get the rear spring mounts and shackels installed.Then we paints the whole thing!!!!!!!!!!:coo l: stay toon.........

Slite updates.

OH Ya almost one year but not much to show I have the chassi outside through the weather and the front spindels got rusty.So I just cleaned them up and put on a rubber protective coating.I purchased the stuff at harbor freight tools.Suppose to be a tool coating.Anyway I see if this protects the spindels.Anyway I purchased most of my Street Rod Head Quarters.But all the rubber components like ball joint rubber covers and the leaf spring rubbers are all cracking badly.No I'm not happy.Has anyone else experienced this?? I'm taking pictures and sending them back to SRH to see what they say.The frame has only been through one newengland winter on t he rottiserrie!! I can't imagine what will happen whe I start to drive the car!!

Well those parts weren't designed to sit out in the weather year around. Everything that is sitting out should be covered, painted, and greased where necessary. Why not get some cheap plastic tarps and wrap the project up over the winter, and duct tape it on to hold it? All the bare metal that got the rubber coating will more than likely be a real pain to remove later, and if all the rust wasn't cleaned off, it will rust from underneath the rubber coating.
