Mines just a hobby so it's been in pieces for like 2 months. Replacing all the bushings stereo etc....I had to send the rear springs back because I ordered ones for like 800 extra lbs which I don't have, so it's been a slog but ive had time to clean off the rust and undercoat as i go alongYep, that's a no brainer, unless you just really, really like kool tools?? which I do, but not money well spent for me.. I started the job with insufficient tools,, it got a little ugly?? so I took it to a gent who spent a few minutes on the lathe, making his own tools... easy peasy! course I haven't gotten the bill yet,,, lol, I don't expect it to be too bad,, this guy works in a large ag industry shop, but they do everything.. he's a friend/family and is borderline genius... oh, and I'm not very patient to wait on my new tool to arrive. I was ready to "get er done!"
