    Frame looks to be in really good condition do you plan on painting it or powder coating it? Another tip on bagging and tagging your parts make sure you write on the bag some description that will make sense to you several months down the road, trust me you will forget...Lol

    Definitely! Will do.

    The frame will be painted a satin black. Along with the other front end components.

    New addition to the garage, not sure if I'm going to keep for a work vehicle or just flip it yet, we will see. 20170629_195537.jpg

    Yes those clean n strip discs are great for paint removal to bare metal. Have done two cars myself. Look at Leigh HighValley Abrassives online. Great place for all kinds of sanding and cutting wheels. Took about eight to do a whole car.

    Well made some improvements today. Took an old rack and cleaned and painted it. Got some fresh wood to make the shelves. Started getting my parts put up neatly. Clear up some floor space! Also built a rack for the front of the car to sit on, seems pretty sturdy. Not my best work, but serves the purpose! Also got the welder cart assembled and started unboxing the welder.

    Nice rack for the front of the car wish i would have made one of those. Shelving looks like it will hold a few parts. Does help to keep the work space organized. I never did cleanup my space was to focused on getting the car done, but as a side note did find my flashlight.

    Some progress made this weekend. Tore down the radiator support, front sheetmetal and brackets for blasting. Nearly complete getting the parts together for blasting. Need to locate a good drivers front fender and a radiator support. Front fender has had extensive work done to it already and the radiator support mounts were broken.
