Ok so here is some updates! I got my slave cylinder ordered, sending unit ordered, fuel lines ordered, tank straps, exhaust system, and skid. All on the way! Also i was in BMORE for a football combine (won strongest man and got invited to the ultimate 100 showcase met the national record set in 2006 at 29reps at 185 on the bench) and while i was there i went to the harbor freight and spent 500$ between me and the old man. And if you have ever been to a harbor freight you know 500$ is alot to spend there. I got an inline sander a new DA an abrasive 40lb blaster and some Cutt of wheels some spray can under coating a regulator for my air system in my shop 100ft of airlines and to much more to list. The sand blaster has made my life 1000x easier it peals paint and rust off of anything i blasted a whole fender in about 5 minutes my old blaster would have taken about 10hours to do it, and that is no exaggeration. I also am going to pick up some metal to build a front bumper with this weekend because there is no way i am droping 300$ on a bumper i can build for 40$ and some time. So ill post up some pics. Enjoy

Anyways i got it back to the shop and got it measured marked then started cutting. I ended up with a huge piece because he was out of 4x2 so k got 4x3 but i am glad i did. Anyways got all my pieces cut and cleaned up then welded them on and got one side cleaned up. My buddy who is one of the most im mechanically inclined guys i know was able to teach me how to weld in like 5 mins. I was Absolutly amazed he knew how too. He can't change a light bulb without messing something up but he can weld d&)@ well!

Brickwall! Went to mount up my body today and got it on and all lined up and pretty looking went to start putting the bolts in! And guess what!? The PO decided it would be a great idea to what looks like he ripped the bolts out so every single mount is rusted out and stripped! So i decided to just go up a bolt size re thread the mounts a size bigger and proceed like that so 30$ later for new bolts and washers i will try agian tomorrow!

Ok so havent posted in awhile so here it goes! First of i have just been introduced to scrap yards and they are full of good finds! So my junk yard finds are. Battery tray retail-100 bought-10+time and paint. Fuel filler and bezel retail-100 bought -15. So i made out good there. Also i worked out all of my mount issues and that is cleared up now that is all mounted up and body work has started. Also got the front end mocked up and aligned which was exciting. Going to be blocking them for paint soon. Also had to cut fenders to fit exhaust but that took about 2 seconds. Also when mounts the grille we had to cut out and remake the mount and breaker that holds it in place so the was frustrating but hey good progress being made! Also as of July third i am a licensed driver! Thumbs up!
