Sounds like a better deal anyways. You can sometimes haggle with these guys and get free shipping even when they're not running a free shipping special.

Skiz - you seem to keep an eye on CL for stuff, let me know if you ever run across any blue denim seats or seat covers.

Also got a new windshield frame and cowl seal today from Morris. Also free shipping!

Went back out to do some more body work this morning, but ran out of welding wire, so I decided to switch gears and start dropping the suspension out in preparation for my lift kit which will be here on Wednesday. So I got the jeep up on jack stands, and cut into the rear crossmember to spray some penetrating oil on the bolts holding the shackle mounts on. I have a new crossmember to go in also, so I'll tackle that now too. 3 out of 4 bolts came right out, and the bolt that snapped, that nutsert popped out when I was banging on it! I'm still amazed at how good of shape the frame is in here! Below, you can see how much dirt I got out of the inside of the frame!

I've got everything disconnected on the rear end, just gotta pull the bolts out of the spring hangers, and I can roll it out. Only problem is, they won't budge! They won't even turn, and I've almost mushroomed the end of the bolts pounding on them with a sledge! I've had to burn out rubber bushings before, and it looks like I'll be doing it again, once I get a new tank for the torch!

I've had good luck squeezing a cutoff Wheel in between the spring eye and hanger to cut the bolts.
Always a PITA no matter how you do it.

On the plus side though, I kept my garage from filling up with black smoke! It's out though.....

I can't stand this coating that is all over everything, but it sure saved everything it was on! Got bright shiny metal as you can see on the rear axle! I've noticed it melts off easily with a little heat, so the rear end will get cleaned up And painted with Por before it goes back in.

Looks about the same as every time I have done it too. I guess I should have mentioned that part also...

J/K, glad you didn't hurt yourself too bad. I've done that with a knotted wire wheel a few times. That usually takes awhile to heal.

What is the black stuff? Some type of tar?

It sure seems like tar. It has the consistency of roofing tar. It's certainly not regular undercoating. It's kind of like pulling a well preserved saber toothed tiger out of a tar pit!

I would guess undercoating. The PO of one of my jeeps put it inside the tub, gasoline was the only thing I found that would remove it.
Nasty stuff for sure. Possibly Ziebart also.

I have heard of people using roofing tar as undercoating. It sure looks like you have a messy job ahead of you.

After my undercoating had pealed and flaked away I was left with a brown colored flakey, powdery substance!! But not to fret. I threw some dry sand at it really fast and hard and it took it right off.

What I got is so thick and gooey that you could throw gravel at it at warp speed, and it would probably just absorb into it and become part of the coating!
