You buy a body mount kit to mount a body, which cannot be accomplished without bolts!

Put the rear axle back on today so I could take the front off and get at that power steering mounting area and clean and paint the rest. Check out those shackles. That is why I bought a new lift kit. 2" width, that's CJ stuff, ain't it?

Got the front axle out of the way and got after the rot at the steering box. Removing that axle was quite the balancing act without a tub on and an engine still in place.

Just got back from the junkyard. Went for TBI parts off of a Chevy vehicle for my fuel injection conversion. Thought I had what I needed until I realized I was pulling off of an eight cyl. Ugh! Lol.

Was pretty burned out on all the patch work, but hung in there and got it pretty much done.

even the grill mount needed patchwork. After that, the patching is all done. I got a couple spots that I left open for cleaning out and paint accessibility, but nothing major. Next post will be of a painted frame.

So I got the frame all patched and rust-proofed. Here are some pics of just how bad my tub was. I spent a day chopping it up and getting it out of the driveway, and then cleaning and reorganizing after all the fab work on the frame.

These are shots of the 2nd stage of the POR 15 rust-proofing process. It is the "Metal Ready" application. It turns the bare metal white while it etches it. I guess that is the Zinc-phosphate at work?

All painted up with the POR 15 and then the Chasis Coat. The inside was banged loose all along with a hammer and blown out and hosed out, hit up with the Metal Ready and followed up with the Eastwood Internal Frame Coating. I used 2.5 cans of that stuff. I kept a half to get into the rails of the new tub going on. I had to drill 2 small drain holes up near the front after hosing and an access hole on the top passenger side about half way down because there are no openings in that stretch. (The Eastwood is green).

So that's about it for now. I'm working on painting things like the trackbars, swaybar and axels. Leafs for my kit will be here tomorrow. I've been mulling over how to do this leaf swap and paint the axels. It's a lot of flanangleing with no counterweight in the rear and I don't think I have the equipment or room to just sit that chasis on 4 jackstands.

Anyone know what kind of steel this is and if it is coated? They are brackets that came with my kit. 3.5" Superlift. I want to paint them but if they are galvy I need to prime them properly, (which would be using a self-etching primer)? If they are steel then are they phosphate coated? I'm using this oil based paint from TSC. They seem pretty light to be hot or cold rolled. I'm going to call tech tomorrow, but who knows how that'll go. Lol. Thanks!

Okay, they are Zinc coated hot-rolled steel. Anyone know what I gotta do to prime and paint these?

Nope. Orange and black. No shiney. Haven't decided if spray can, buy a gun, hire help, hire help for beer, paint in pieces, as whole, etc... I'm not much of a paint guy, but it is just a jeep, but I did put a lot of work into it. So I'm really up in the air on paint right now! Lol.
