Wet sanded and buffed the drivers side door, mounted it on the tub and installed most of the door hardware, glass run channels and wing window. Removed the passenger side door latch mechanism from the drivers side and installed the correct latch mechanism...oddly it worked but I would have figured it out when I hooked up the paddle handle.

Installed the tailgate latch hardware, seal and the tub plugs.

Watched it rain.

I bought a new to me fold and tumble rear seat and due to having to add the latch brackets since mine had the fixed seat I bought a mildly built 304 to help carry the extra weight

Fixed a vacuum leak. Installed rear shackle hangars, shackles, 2.5" springs, bushings, and ford 8.8 rear end. Cleaned the garage, sort of, painting the hard top and windshield frame. I'm tired

Drove it tonight for the first time since September, the new suspension is awesome, was rock steady at 73MPH! I am loving the shackle reversal.

I'm in the same position. I feel his pain, but am still stoked that it actually runs.

The old tub is cut up and off. For such a rusted tub, it didn't want to go easily. Frame and body mounts are in great shape! Now have to cut off all the PO spring over stuff. More cutoff wheels needed, at least 20 more...
