Finished welding up the fish plate and have the shackle hooked up for the first time. Seems the rear lifted 2 inches. That's OK cause I have some lowering blocks!

I tried to get a shot of how close the shackle is to the fender. It's about an inch away. That's alright cause I have a couple inches to play with as far as moving the body back and I can modify the shackles so they're rounded off instead of square. That should give me the clearance I need.

Once I figure out my welder problem I'll finish up the other shackle and the fender work. Then I'll move on to making a roll bar / cage and finish up the body work so I can start painting / rebuilding the chassis.

It's getting there!
