If you 're lucky they'll put the frame in the straightener, move it waay to far, and cause all of the paint to crack and flake off Then maybe they'll offer to buy a new frame.

Trust me Scott, you aint the only one that has to do things twice. It happens to me all of the time! Just like the other day when I put new ball joints in my front end that I plan to use. I found out the hard way that you don't back the nut off on the bottom joint, it ruined the threads. Had to end up cutting the nut off just to get the joint off so I could go back to the parts store and buy another new one. Not a lesson I'll soon forget.

The longer of the two short pins fit perfectly. Almost like somebody knew what they were doing! THAT repair had a happy ending!

glad to see things are looking up on the build. I'm waiting on some stuff to arrive this week. My chassis saver shipped Monday, I bought all the parts to rebuild my 80 gallon compressor yesterday so I should be back up and running soon. I updated North East FL 4x4 - Home so check it out, you'll have to reregister because I upgraded to vBulletin. Everyone should check it out and join. Don't matter if you are from North East FL or not.

Nick- I hope you get your compressor up and going. It's an important tool and it sounds like yours is a good one. I'll check out your web site again.



GOOD NEWS ON CLAY'S FRAME!! I called the shop and the owner told me it was done... pick it up tomorrow. He got the diamond pulled out of it and got the rails straight. He was sounding kind of nervous and I waited for the bomb... but he was worried about the fact that he boogered up my paint job! HA HA HA HA HA! That crappy paint job... he said it's perfect. Cost is... is... is... $100! Oh Thank God! Truly, I can't wait to get a wirewheel on this beautiful frame one more time!

Scott you sound excited. It doesn't take too much to make guys like us happy does it.

Glad the frame turned out so good and not costing any more than it did. At least the new paint won't have years of grease and dirt too. Betcha use that POR15 this time don't you. After all you can't have Mike poking at you with that stick a second time.

Good to hear your frame was a quick tweak. Now the real work begins.

Thanks Guys... Yeah, 'Ol Mike hurt me with that stick! I was actually thinking this time... wirewheel down to the lacquer primer, scuff it GOOD, REAL GOOD, and shoot it with the Valspar. I've never had a problem with Valspar. The only difference in my usage THIS time was painting over the lacquer primer. I must not have scuffed it enough. I'm not planning to take it down to bare metal again. The topcoat HAS to come off, and it might come off with a pressure washer. We'll see... I might change the name to Clay's Eternal Frame Resto!

LOL. I'm taking my frame down to the bare metal now. It sucks. I'm using Klean Strip and different wire wheels and Nortons Rapid strip. The Chassis Saver should be here this week and I can get to painting the frame. The frame was black, after I removed the black there was a very tough blue paint on the frame, could this of been from factory?
