Semi-gloss black is better then flat black. Did you get it finished?? PICS>>>

Jessie is good people. Most of the time when I go to Tio Leo's, he's already off work so we don't get special treatment.

We typically go there ~twice a month. It's one of our favorite Mexican restaurants.

Just let me know if you need an address/phone number. It's best to call me first incase I'm making a hardware/supply run.
^^^Same goes for today and possibly tomorrow^^^

Wow.. Someone stole your fender..

I was at Jason's all day working on the new frame with him. My face is sunburn now....

If he ever posts the great pics you'll see.

Perhaps I can help you next.. Now that you fixed the welding mask...Depending on my work schedule.

Keep the pics coming.

Betcha' wish your girlfriend was as dirty as my Jeep!

Well, the frame is now sandblasted, primed and painted! It looks pretty stinking sweet if you ask me.

Anyway, we wrapped up the sandblasting and final touch ups today. We pulled the birds nest (yes, its true) from the frame channel and sprayed it down with air to get all the sand off. We had an issue with the spray gun at first but got it resolved. The frame is now sitting nice and cozy back in my garage looking good.

I am hoping to have both axles completed and installed by the weekend of the 12th.

Remnants of said birds nest


Painting begins!



All done
