I was surprised to see the frame in as good a condition as it looks to be, considering the condition of the tub.

Speaking of the tub, wouldn't you make quicker work of it with a sand blaster? Equipment rental places have them. Of course, your budget may not allow it, but you could have it all done in one day.

Will be following this one!

woke up early to do some work before football.
grinded the front end and removed the P/I/T/A motor mounts. was fun till the rain came. and dry lightning got too close for comfort so i painted the bear metal and packed up and went back in the house to get ready for practice.
enjoy.

I hope you realize that you can never slow down now and since you've committed yourself to a timeline for completion you've put pressure on yourself.

Did you learn nothing from Scotty on Star Trek? You should have told us, "It'll take at least 6 months to get 'er up to full power Cap'n!" Then when you have it done a month early you are the miracle worker.

We're all living our dream through you.
