I'll let the pictures do most of the talking
After some cutting:
The top part has been cut away.
We'll finish Friday:
Casualty of the day:
The plan for Friday is to weld in a 1 1/4" black steel tube in that hole made by the torch then put the top on, then put the side on and weld the other end of the tube, weld it all together inside and out, then put the bottom on, then a nice rattlecan job and I'll wire brush it someday when I have enough funds for POR-15.
Oh yeah, and I dunno if I mentioned it, but one of the reasons I failed MA inspection was cuz my tailpipe was rotted away so it was split in half, not a problem anymore (and I won't hit any rocks):
Anyone wanna make this click free, go for it.
Comments, suggestions, etc. welcome.
Also if anyone could tell me where to get a new bushing and sleeve for my stock shackles without ordering new ones (If I need new ones I'll go MORE 5/8...anything that is endorsed that much must be good but I'm trying to stick to a budget).
Been up since 6am today, got work tonight til tomorrow at 9am...Good thing I'm not working on it tomorrow, I'll need some SLEEP.
