The frames in the driveway! I just need to find a place to put it besides under tarps. I'll post some pictures in the morning tomorrow.
The insides of the frame rails are muuuch cleaner than the frame under the jeep now! Pretty much all the rust on it is surface rust that can be ground off or sand blasted. I wish I took a picture of it in the bed of my friends truck. An entire frame in a 6ft bed looked hilarious going up 95. The frame was only 270!
Should i use an angle grinder to take the rust off or buy a 24 gallon air compressor off cl and get a husky sandblasting kit to clean it up? I'd like to start stripping it this weekend. Any input would be appreciated! I want to do this once and do it right
Have you tried welding yet? I have a few small things to work on, but no welder or experience with that (yet) either.

I tried a couple of practice welds on an old busted leave spring from a boat trailer but nothing extensive yet. It's really not that hard just as long as the surface you are welding is clean enough. I'm picking up an air compressor tonight worked 7 hours today and got an xmas bonus at my other job. I'm definitely going to try and sandblast it with the home depot kit to see how far I get.
Small world! It's a great school but everyone is definitely only business focused haha. Turns out the plug on the compressor is a 240v instead of a 120v. I might call an electrician tomorrow to see if someone can upgrade one of the outlets in the basement. It kicks out 9 cfm at 90psi though! Only $140. It's a sears oiled compressor.
Well I found a 220v dryer outlet down in the basement. Anyone know how to wire up a new outlet? I just need to swap it from the 4 prong outlet to a 3 prong. After that the frame starts getting cleaned up inside and out then POR 15'd
The white is neutral along with the green or it will just be bare copper. The black and red are your hot wires. So then just hook the black and red to the hot on the plug. Then the white on the neutral on the plug. Then ground the green or bare copper to the box.
If you decide to repair the old frame and need some help let me know, i help run an R&D shop along with 4 other engineers in nashua 15 mins from lowell ma. If you want some tips or some help welding let me know.
