Bummer... talk about a series of unfortunate events. Still, it looks awesome. I am definitely adding that to the "Mods I Want Someday" file.

Awesome work. Is the attachment completely flat or is there a slight bend, I can't tell by pics? Great design, something I need to do

It's flat! I finished welding it today and bent some handles that I should be welding in this weekend.

Almost done with the frame repairs. Started on the last of the spring hangers.

Cut the junk off.


Made a repair piece.


Welded it up from the inside.


Welded it up from the outside, and cleaned it up.


Added a 3/16 strip to the bottom edge.


Ready to drill holes for the hanger,weld in nuts, and close up the rail tomorrow.

Started stripping the front end in preparation of new suspension, ball joints, steering and to get the brakes working.




The good news is the bearings look new and grease fresh BUT the op didnt replace any seals so ill throw in a set. Front calipers have seen better days and only one side actually worked (the other was full of milky looking sludge and was seized) Both slides were gummed up and hardly moved which wouldn't have helped.



The reason i decided to install new ball joints was the old ones were REALLY stiff. IM not sure what the pre-load is supposed to be but these needed both hands and full force to turn. Its no wonder the power steering goans. Of course having no bushes in the springs, sway bars and no shocks made the front end feel loose as hell.

Got up at 5 on our national day and got the hell outta town in the 7. Reunited it with the 8 then went to the beach for a barbie, CJ style of course.

Damned 7 has an intermittent cut out fault, suspect the coil is shot. Tomorrow I'll swap with the 8 and serif it goes away. Nothing worse than irregular faults, drive a man to drink.
