Added some extra plate on the underside of the chassis front hoops and some fishplate on high stress spots.  Chassis welding complete.

Front bones and rear link tabs welded.  This tennis elbow is really slowing me down.  Grip strength is like 50%...

Put down some etching primer on the wheels and chassis.  Had to pull the tires back off so I could re-sandblast the wheels and the other set I found in better condition.  Going to follow that up with a shot of sandable primer before I apply the final color(s).

Was sandblasting the rear brake parts and notice the Ford logo.  I would think it would only come on factory installed parts.?..
If so, thats not bad for an axle from 1978.

Well after a few tweaks to the front cross member and repainting (the additional welding pulled more than i expected), I got the car back to rolling status. All grade 8 hardware and top locks. Front wheel bearings packed and all seals and brake hardware installed.  I can now call the chassis complete.  Got the wire wheels painted in the final color.  Slowly prepping the body for some basic flat black primer paint.   Engine and tranny prep in the queue.
