Powder Jim, Powder.

Frame looks great!!! If you lived closer I would probably be trying to figure out how to swap frames in the middle of the night.

Love the super black chassis paint! Missouri clay mud should rinse right off!

I thought your frame looked far better than mine!! I may someday look into powder coating. It does seem to be a good process but for now I'll paint. Maybe my next project to restore, like that 68 Bronco .

No rolling chassis yet but the makings for one. I painted most of what I need to mount the axles and drivetrain. Shackle mounts and shackles, engine mounts, shock towers and crossmember. Used the same paint and primer as I used on the frame. Just beat the rain by a few minutes. Now I can start putting things back together again. Maybe I should have called this build Humpty Dumpty!

Hey Jim. Things are lookin' great! Yeah yeah- I'm still here. Just too busy with school work to get much done at home.

How come all of those painted parts aren't galvanized?? :P Just fooling.

Looking good Jim, everytime I look at your rack I kick myself for not building one

BTW, between me and my shooting buddy in Houston, we ordered a 1000 bullets for the 223 this weekend along with 15 pounds of powder. We plan to bench test the two types to choose the more accurate of the two and follow up with an order for 6000
