Hey everyone, here are photos from day 8, i got the shafts out and the pistons and I am now ready to send off the block to be machined, sadly I wont be able to be take pictures while it gets machined so thats one process i wont have documented. I found one more small issue today that could of been adding to the problems. it seemed that on the piston spacing rings that go inbetween the shaft and the piston instead of it being a complete circle one of the halfs of the circle folded into the other one and they were overlapped and started to break down and thin out. I have some pictures of the overlap to show what im talking about.

Hey everyone, I finally have the frame almost completely ready for painting. I have been sanding down the frame and pressure cleaning it. I bought a system from KBS coating that is a 4 step system, Step 1 is a clean, Step 2 is a rust remover, Step 3 is two coats of a rust seal and blocker, and Step 4 is a black top coat. I have a picture of the system. The engine block is currently at the machine shop along with the crank shaft and control arms. Im ordering the master rebuild kit and will have pictures of everything when they come in.

Hey everyone. So today i reconditioned my shock absorbers. They were completely all rusty and had a bad looking decal on them. So i took the decal off, used 320 sand paper and prepped them. And then sprayed them with 4 coats of a nice high gloss white.

Hey everyone, so today I started removing the dash and organizing all the wires. I bought an ideal wire marker booklet at home depot and I really recommend it for anyone thats going to be doing wire work. It makes it really easy and helps you keep track of it all. Ill put a picture of it up. I also took the oringial 1/4" screws that hold in the dash and bought them in 6" long screws so that way i could keep the dash held in place but pull it forward 6 inches exposing all the wires so i can work on them as I go. I only have a few wires left and Monday i will have it completely out. I also got the steering column out. Next I need to remove the heater since i live in south florida and it doesn't get cold ever so I won't be needing a heater.

That's a great idea to use the 6 inch bolts!

are you going to just replace the windshield frame or try and fix the rust on yours?
