Betta ya don know Skipper were the term CRUD comes from? No i didn tink so. Well one of the very first nuc reactors was built on Chalk River. When they open it up for inspection they found a yellow deposit in the bottom of the reactor and didnt know what it was so they called it Chalk River Unidentified Depoists CRUD.

So Skipper you have rust not CRD.

My computer gets totally freaked out when I have more than one browser open, and it overloads. Thought it was gonna BLOW! Here's the last pics of this sequence...


The rust is deep down in the grooves and cracks. I need a different wheel to attack this. Wifey is on the way home from Church, so she will stop and get me one. In the meantime, I used a wire brush by hand.



Hand brushed.



Other ugly spots cleaned up.




These are both very good products. I bought the Metal Ready as part of a "kit" when I bought the POR15. It's all gone, but I'm using the bottle. I'm pouring Ospho into the bottle.



Notice the immediate reaction to the bare metal! It foams up as it etches.




And this is the worst spot on the frame. It has Ospho on it. There is where we're at... waiting for it to cure. Probably done for the day.



I'm going to have to address the entire frame. I had hoped to avoid that, but no way around it.

It COULD be CRUD!

I think I would rather have yours! I got into mine today... ALLLLL the way in. It is still much better than Clay's, but it has some holes in it that will require welding. I was going to take some pics, but I got to moping around too much! I guess, since this Jeep was in very good shape, I was expecting there to NOT be any significant rust. And now I'm disappointed. I don't WANT to do another major build. I just want to drive it.

I have never been so profoundly affected by an election before. I fear for everything this nation was founded upon.

Skipper, truthfully I fully agree with your take on the recent events. IMO the good old days are behind us, for years we have been creeping in the the left lane a few years back we made the left turn and now the powers that be are shifting into high gear going down that road.

No one knows were we will end up at since its uncharted territory, but that is beyond our control.

George it really isn't uncharted territory. Just take a trip back to the once great Roman Empire. The thing that undone them was apathy among the public, much of which was being supported by those that "would" work. Also the powers to be knew that if the people could be kept somewhat comfortable and happy they would go right along. Just look at the entertainment the public could view in the coliseum. Another thing that helped the fall was the absolutely corrupt people in politics. The good decent folks that should have been involved wanted no part. See any parallel going on with today? There are many other examples to be mentioned but I don't feel like typing that much.

We saw what is important to both the voters and those in public office. On one hand freedom is being limited, i.e. health care, where you taxes are spent or better said wasted and many other things. Now turn to what won. Gay marriage and smoking pot. Gay marriage is a very small group of people but look at all the attention that was on it. Smoking pot was not big deal, actually those that use it may find they were better off with it illegal after they start paying taxes. Oh and the right to be born!! It always seems to take it on the chin. So on one hand it's fine and dandy for one man to stick his penis in another's rear end and be legally married, boy wouldn't that have rallied the troops on the beaches of Normandy to know they were fighting for that but that innocent little child really needs to be murdered because after all it may be a burden to the mother or even unwanted.

So yes George we've been here before and every time socialism is tried it fails. The one time when individual freedom and personal responsibility was tried it created the greatest nation of all time. Some of us that are older saw some of that nation. It's fading fast now though. Our great Constitution is being trashed and no doubt God looks down at us with disdain. Many on here are not happy with what has happened. Some are. For those that are you have that right and I'd never try to take that away but when those decisions go against our founding documents and move us away from being a representative Republic we do have a problem and the rights you cherish are in danger too. I don't have the grasp on things to know exactly what the Founders intended but I think we've gotten off track, cause we're looking too much like what they fled from in Europe, England and other places. Those people wanted to have freedom. We've taken what they died for and gave us and let it be taken away. If this nation is ever going to be what it was intended then those that care need to first get right with God then show others that it truly is the path to freedom.

Sorry Scott to get your thread going this way and I sure don't mean to be offensive to anyone. I think all of us are thinking some of the same things. One last thing. If everyone in this nation had raised their kids to be responsible and decent people the way you have we sure would not have the problems we do today.
