Clean frame, add POR 15 <-------phew...done
Checking crossmember holes to see if repair needed due to stripping ( only have five bolts in, wonder if previous owner stripped the inserts ).

Evaluate the current springs. <------replaced.
Replace fuel tank skid. <--------replaced.
Check interior of tank for sending unit float malfunction. < New tank and sending unit/pump added.
Now....that being said.....step ONE....clean all the junk out of the garage...figure out WHERE the kids put all your tools over the last year, recover what the neighbors took...and PAINT THE FLOOR
Guess what I got today for a smoking deal of $250.00? A Ford 8.8 with 4.10 Limited Slip with full kit on it. I had a mechanic that I know look at it on the trailer before I offloaded it and he was amazed I got it with breather, lines, good rotors, clean brakes, etc.
Remember this photo from an earlier thread? Here is the victim...
I have a hard top forit also, and that will be fixed next.
The soft top has a zipper issue that needs to be fixed, perhaps I will take somewhere to fix it rather than buy a new one. I do have to fix the windshield steel to hold the screws better...I think I can get some inserts for the screw bases and sink them in the window frame to eliminate tear out.
Anyway...thats where it sits.
