Couldn't see putting the old sway bar bushings back on so went to Autozone and grabbed some nice new ones. Didn't realize that the bushing bracket that mounts under the steering box was offset, so had to modify the new one a bit. Wasn't a big deal at all.

Paying down the lift purchase, to make room for a wheel/tire purchase.

Debating on what to do with this. Either: a). Leave it alone, don't worry about it, or b). run a bead of clear silicone between the bracket and frame, or c). run a bead of silicone between the bracket and frame and weld the ends shut.

I'm just worried about creating a greenhouse effect and rotting the frame out. On the other hand if I don't seal it then water will sit in there.

So here begins my first abortion on this project. Not too proud of the work done here, but not too proud to put it up. If I were to do it again, I would probably draw it and build it from scratch. In all, it will function.

Still getting use out of that filing cabinet that I garbage picked for the tub work! Best freebie I've ever grabbed. Lol.

Lipstick on a pig. Yeah, I paint my POR 15 right outta the can! Had just enough leftover from the frame coating. FYI if you clean the rim really good and put wax paper between the can and the lid, it will stay liquid form and you will be able to get the lid off no problem, (I was worried I'd be screwed coming back to it two weeks after first use). Just watch your storage temp.

And this is what we built today. Notice the squirrel terminator half way up. It's not really all out of whack, it's just an illusion because of there being three hooks on two different levels. Everything is straight and in line and overkilled! It was swaying like a spring standing on that concrete, but not one leg lifted up even a bit. Lol.

Been a while since I updated. Haven't quit working on her though.

Rear bumper/crossmember prep and mount. I cut a piece of 3/8" flatstock to fit inside the box frame and sit flush with the end of the frame. Welded that in all the way around. Didn't have any squarestock so took 2 pieces of angle and welded those together, which I welded to the flatstock for the bumper/crossmember mount. Welded the bumper/crossmember to the mount all the way around and then "extended" the frame into the bumper/crossmember with 3/16" plate and welded that all the way around. Also had the channel lip flush to the bottom edge of the frame open and available for a weld and also drilled a hole in the bumper/crossmember for a plug weld to the angle mounts.

Took apart the rear brakes, ran the new ebrake cables. Lost the equalizer bracket somewhere between teardown and fabwork so jimmied one up quick just to make the connection and check it out. Correct replacement bracket came via ebay yesterday.

Took a day in there somewhere to go to the boneyard and pull my tbi and harness for the fi conversion.
