well my dad was off for a few days back in march so he helped me remove the tub. I am going to be ordering new sides for the tub, por 15 under it or a roll on rubber coating. not sure yet. The frame will be sanded, and por-15 will be aplied to it. But I found a f*****g hole in the rear of the frame!! looks like ill be buying new pieces for the rear. Oh did I mention...I HATE TORX BOLTS!! aha

For your frame repairs, check out these guys: Auto Rust Technicians. Make sure you check the whole frame very thoroughly for weak spots. You're not going to want to remove the body again. Also, make sure the body mount tabs are in good shape.

I went around the frame several times for about half an hour with a hammer pounding away on it. the rest seems very solid!!

I would look into getting the inside of your frame coated while the tub is removed. I've always been curious about it and with all that rust, it seems like a good sandblasting plus some coating would prevent anymore.

Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.

Good idea Kodiak, iv been thinking about doing that. Probably going to clean up the outside of the frame then tape up all the air vent holes with tape, flush then poor por15 in the frame and just keep rolling it to distribute all the coating.

I have heard of people using an old sock or undershirt + a broomstick or lacrosse handle. Just a thought...

well getting up to date finnaly. Sorry guys that I havent posted a lot of pics of the dissasembly. well be taking more as time goes on tho. back in april I had gotten the exhaust off, header, drive shafts, gas tank and rear axle off also got the rear leaf springs off, but the bolts in it got rust welded in there, even smashing the bolts with a sledghammer didn't help!! so we had to cut them. sanded down a section of frame that looked real bad to me but within a minute got right down to clean metal!! It looks wors than it actualy is. Although about a foot of the rear frame must be replaced. kinda expected that.

And so I am now finnaly up to date!! tomorrow will upload the pics of the front axle off and gona try to remove the engine. to remove the trany I had to deal with a striped star bolt on the passender side from the bellhousing to the engine, used a die grinder to grind the head off not the best way but hey to worked!! to remove the trany since I didnt have a transmission jack I used a regular car jack and a little old fashion mussle! always does the trick So guys what do you recomend to me for painting the engine block?? what type of paint should I go with?? also what is the average price to rebuild the head for the 4.0 here in canada??
Thanks!

Lots options with paint, Rustoleum has a high-temp enamel for engine blocks if you wan to go cheap. In my opinion color wise, don't go with a tacky color like orange. I think a light silver would look good against the blue engine bay.
