I've been pretty busy with work lately and haven't gotten much done in the last few weeks, but I did get the power steering box mounts located and welded in place.

After that was done I tore it all the way down and cleaned off all the remaining paint with aircraft stripper. I also washed off all the grease and oil. After that I hauled it to T&L irrigation to have it galvanized. It was dropped it off on a Monday and they called Tuesday afternoon to tell me it was done. I'll let it sit for awhile then I'll get all the threads cleaned up and get some paint on it.

Also, while I was waiting on things for my cousin's 78 i drove down to Houston and met with clubtroy. I bought the frame and dash panel out of the 40 he is currently parting out. I gave up on the junk frame i had.

If you take the running board supports off, the bare frame easily slides into the back of a full sized pickup.
