Paul, I spoke to Barry at SPI and he said *do not worry* about flash rust, the epoxy will encapsulate it and it will be fine. That is one thing I like about SPI, they deal strictly with primer and clear and thats it.

Paul, you're doing an awesome job! It looks like I'm about a month behind you on my project, which is good, because I can learn about what worked for you and what didn't.

Thanks Fred. We are probably at the same stage because I have not torn down my CJ yet. Once I get the spare frame prep'd I'll start on that.... and I am slow...

Had some leftover 2x4s from a basement project so decided to use them to build a stand for painting. Have not dropped it on yet, but think it will hold up fine.

It might be tough to get to the inside of the frame with that setup maybe hanging the frame to paint it might be easier? I see shops do that all the time on stuff they paint they hang it for easy access to everything and with the holes in the frame you won't have anything touching the hangers so you have full access without the frame touching things.

Looks like you bled DeWalt yellow. I really like their tools

Looks like he has it set up for rotate. That should work great

Glenn is correct, I welded a pipe to some angle iron that will bolt on each end of the frame (stole the idea from Dave). Will be able to rotate the frame 360. After I get two coats on I will push the stands in and rest the frame on it, unbolt the angle and spray the areas covered by the angle.

I do like my DeWalt tools!! I like my new Hobart welder even more.

You know Jim, it never crossed my mind to use them for that! I guess if I turned them around and weighted the lower crossmember with some sand bags it would probably work fine. Thanks!

Will the frame clear the inside braces?

Yep! Rear horse is wider than the front one and each crossmember is 4" wider than the frame. And I made sure they were tall enough that nothing will catch at the bottom when I rotate it. At least that's the plan. Guess I will find out if I measured correctly once I take it for a spin.

I like the setup, Paul. I'll be using that idea, after I get my frame repaired and sandblasted.

I think I may go out to the garage and monkey it up onto the stand. Will let you know if it collapses.

EDIT: Changed my mind. Too tired. I have a 8" steel I-beam that spans the width of my house, you can kinda see my chain hoist hanging from a 1/2" eye bolt I attached to the beam. 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!!!
