Slinter's Second Venture

I found this little prize before it got junked. Ladies husband had expired and she wanted it out of the yard. Have already had the Block Shop do the machining and provide all rebuilding parts for the 360. My buddy and I will soon assemble the motor and the I will start on the chassis. Have a ton of replacement panels from the states and have a good Esab mig welder. Should be interesting providing I don't get divorced.

BACK TO THE BUILD. Where I left off. Tub is hanging in garage. Half rebuilt motor stored at buddies place. Frame repair started.
I am attempting to press on new vibration damper. Crank has heli coil in it. Have made a home fashioned pusher. I was thinking of cooling crank (dry ice) and heating damper and then go for it.

finished the front half of the rotisserie cause I felt like doing some welding. Now I should get back to the frame.

My homemade welder works pretty well.

After pounding the frame with a sledge hammer and blowing it out with high pressure air, I injected a rust5 tratment into the inside of the frame. The frame is in good shape for a 80 CJ7.

I had a gallon of this Industrial Metal Primer hanging around so I liberally injected it into the frame. I think this frame will be preserved for awhile, lol.
