Make a long story short and show in pictures...

Frame was blasted, some damaged spots repaired by smike
Bulkhead also blasted and new panels put in.. amazing that I have tolerance for sheet metal welding.

I spend the better part of the first few weeks/month of quarantine (March-April 2020)stripping, cleaning, welding and getting parts ready for blasting and dipping..

Took a trip to Buffalo right around the beginning of May to have everything dipped (well everything at the time)
Convinced my wife it was a good socially distance activity to take the kids.. this was at the height of CRAZY...

Galvy process went well, no major warping, just some damage on the bulkhead from the idiot who strapped it down on the trailer  ::)

Frontier called and let me know they weren't happy with the result of the first dip, so they dipped again..
got some very good cavity coating that doesn't normally occur.. Very, very pleased with the results..

More to come...

get an account just for market place- i dont know how you survive buying things.  CL is dead.  niche forums people think they have gold. 

you dont have to add any info to it or add "friends"  my co worker was anti, but has a non used account just for auto sales ha

All contact is through facebook messenger. They mask all emails and phone numbers to prevent spam/phishing.
