Re: My new project 86 Silverado

went to Tractor Supply and bought a bunch of grade 8 bolts/washers/nuts
they sell them by the pound, so it's the best place to get bulk grade 8 fasteners.
i will use these to put the frame/suspension/truck back together, nothing but grade 8 going back on the truck.

Re: My new project 86 Silverado

Looking sharp man! Can't wait to see it painted!

When I did some painting on my truck for my mirrors and stuff my dad suggested using coat hangers because I never would of thought it, made it look like I had my own little paint shop.

So when you plan to be finished with priming and painting? Sometime this week, and start putting everything back together next week?

Re: My new project 86 Silverado

ordered upper control arm cross shafts from rock auto ... the originals were damaged...

probably going with Mcgaughy's 2.5" drop spindles, may go lower will decide soon

looked at auto parts places today (auto zone, advance auto, rock auto), and to replace all the brakes up front...rotors/bearings/seals/calipers/hardware/pads will be way more than 250.00

Mcgaughy's front brake kit is only 256.00 at http://grunionfabrication.com so if I can't find a whole brake kit cheaper than that, i'm going with it

The joys of sanding and priming honestly I wont lie, yeah it might have been quite the pain in the butt to do, but nobody can ever say I didn't sand down and prime my own truck. Would I do it again, thought about it, but I probably won't

Just be patient with it man take your time, and if you have electric sanders definitely use one, if you don't have one I suggest go buy one, trust me I handed sanding the front fender of my truck then I found we had a sander, yeah let's just say once I found that sander I haven't turned back. We actually have 2 now one for me and 1 for if I have a friend that helps me.

Re: My new project 86 Silverado

yeah, I have an air DA 6" sander, and a 1/4 sheet electric sander.
damn DA sander takes a crap load of air, i may buy me a electric DA sander, quieter and i don't have to listen to that damn compressor run constantly..

Re: My new project 86 Silverado

Definitely man! I know I love my 2 electric sanders work like a charm, the thing I'm not looking forward too is when I get my new bed and have to sand that down....but oh well it's going to have to be done either way.

Re: My new project 86 Silverado

turned the frame over, and primed the top side
primed the rear diff housing
re-primed the cross members/engine mount brackets
primed the springs

didn't have enough gumption to actually paint. will do that tomorrow for sure.
that way i'll have the rest of the week/weekend to put the control arm bushing in, etc. etc. and be ready to start hanging parts.
slowly but surely...

Re: My new project 86 Silverado

That's looking real purty. I wish I could do that! I'm laying under the truck sanding and painting my frame. Having everything off and accessible would be really neat. Keep up the good work!

Re: My new project 86 Silverado

If you don't mind me asking. What is the difference in the three spray guns you bought and how much were they. Did you buy one for primer and another for paint? Do they have different tips. Just curious why you bought three guns. Educate me if you would. I am hog dumb when it comes to this area.

Re: My new project 86 Silverado

it might not be of much help, but i've heard of people removing the bump stop in the rear, not sure if that was just to drop the rear 5" or 6"
