Re: Lime Wife's 67

Wire wheeling, scraping has been my business lately.
Got the frame mostly clean going over it with one of those paint stripper wheels and sanding to get clean metal. Doing it a section at a time so i can prime it before it has time to rust. Having it sandblasted would have been smarter. lol Also patched a piece of the frame where to p.o. done something torched it beat it something where the auto trans cross member bolts up. I also cut out the left over manual trans cross member ends they didn't remove.

Re: Lime Wife's 67

Small update. I finally got the frame cleaned all the way and primed. Working on cleaning the front suspension parts now. In the what was i thinking... I seen the dust shield had some rust holes in it so i decided to make me some patch panels for it. It actually turned out pretty good was kinda a pain though. A little dolly and hammer work and it will be ready to clean up.

Re: Lime Wife's 67

After the work above on the dust shields i'm getting new. While cleaning them i found more holes. Sometimes i work harder than worth it to save a dime. But anyways i have been busy cleaning the rest of the parts for the suspension/frame. All primed up and ready for warm weather to spray some paint.

Re: Lime Wife's 67

When to install my spare tire winch and it doesn't' fit. I must have not checked when i welded in the two middle cross pieces so i had to remove it and cut out the angles. This time i made sure it fit before and after welding i also just used a straight piece instead of the angles looks better to me. Got it painted and ready to install.

Re: Lime Wife's 67

Painted the sway bar and the brackets. Worked on removing the rivets to bolt the brackets in place loosely.

Re: Lime Wife's 67

Sway bar is installed, re-installed my spare tire winch mount and installed the winch. Fits great now, brake lines are probably next.
