Kinda outta order with the Por15 on it got anoxious to see what it would look like when i was doing the tranny and tcase..flipped it chased out 2 more wasp nests and pressure washed the Underneath. Gonna wire wheel what I can this weekend and sand blast the bad areas. Replacing the old axel and moving the disk brakes over to my rebuilt one. Have new brake and fuel lines and sending unit on the way too. PO cut out the ebrake cables so have new ones coming too. replacing all the t bushing and body mounts with poly too.

So from the get go this was more of a restore/fix rust make a daily driver project. Frame was solid and mechanically for the most part was in good shape. Had either a carb or vacum isues causing it to bog down under wot. No biggie. Like most of my projects it's suffering from the dreaded creep. Why not fix this or that while I'm this far in etc..😂 so anyway the frame is back on the new front axel, tires and replacing leaf bushings. Finishing up the motor shortly and dropping it in. pics of that coming soon..so the body work is what's gonna be the challenge. Still on the look out for a decent used tub to sacrifice.
