It is offset in the garage and tomorrow AM I will rig another one in the center so I can just hoist the frame up and onto the stand. No reason to break my back when there is an easier way!!!
That's why I love my tractor, but I do wish I had a garage to put the frame in...the BMW gets that spot, though.

If you get the chance, Paul, head up to the Palomar Observatory. An Army buddy and I stopped to visit his aunt in SD in '93 and his cousin lives up by the observatory...very cool, but watch out for the rattlers.

If you ask around I'm sure you can find a duddy that will loan you his, use it to pick the frame up .

Back from San Diego and called in sick today. Beautiful out. Finishing prep work then get the frame up on my stand this afternoon. Hope to spray the Eastwood internal coating this evening and epoxy on Saturday since it will be in the mid 70s. Will post up some pics later today.

I talked to Barry over at SPI... great support! He said wiping any overspray with acetone will be fine as long as I follow up with W&G remover before I spray the epoxy.

Wear gloves and a mask (note a dust mask) when dealing with acetone. You can get the 3M Automotive (6000 Series) mask at home depot.

Acetone is NOT good for you!

Well, it's up on the stand and it rotates. It won't stay on its side, but that was to be expected. The angle iron flexes a LOT more than I expected! It looks like it will work for the intended purpose. Stand is firm and does not wobble.

I got one frame rail sprayed with Eastwood's internal frame coating and it goes on nicely BUT it runs out every little seam, etc!!!! I taped up the holes but it still runs out. I wiped it as best I could but the external frame definitely has green hue (color of the coating) in certain areas. Now I need to find out if there is gonna be a chemical reaction when I spray epoxy. Keeping fingers crossed.... Guess I will call Eastwood in the AM.

But I gotta say, I looked in every hole with a flashlight and small mirror and it definitely covers every square inch inside the frame!

Transforming garage into poor mans paint booth. Wife is already not happy. She said, why does the whole house smell like paint?! That was only the internal frame paint. She is not gonna be pleased when I spray epoxy and top coat.

Looking good!

Be sure to tape up the door to the kitchen because the AC will suck that smell in and disperse it evenly throughout the entire house, the only habitable space will be the "doghouse"

I sent you a PM about the rear crossmember.

How many cans to do the one side?

And you're not alone, my wife doesn't understand that sometimes work needs to be done in a garage and that it isn't just another room in the house. She wasn't overly thrilled when the house began smelling like brake cleaner.......or saw dust......or hi temp paint......or......well you get the idea. Needless to say, when we build our next place MY space will definitely be detached from the house and hopefully not within "yelling distance".

'84 CJ-7: Yota axles (spartan locked front, e-locked rear) 4" BDS, 1" Daystar & 3/8" shackle lifts, 35" X-Terrains on steelies, YJ Tub & family roll bar, heater blower upgrade, 4.2L w/MC2100 & Team Rush, Warn 8274. Rebuilt 4.2/4.0 hybrid, AX15 and twin sticks/clocking ring waiting to go in.

The advertised position for a topless, dirty jeep girl has been filled......by my wife. Thanks to all that applied.
<------------and yes, that is her.
:-D
