  1. Please dont judge the welding!! Haha I only ever took a short night course and the instructor said "you guys will never weld, just stick s&$t together" It is solid though. Taking it to clean now, dry fit the front diff and that cut, ugly as it is seems to be perfect. Painting going well, clearcoat stage. Frame painting next!
  2. Thanks!! Hoping she looks sharp. I have done this with my 250 years ago, painted the underside of the plastics with black rocker guard. Turned out really well. Going to really help the orange underneath pop! I like the underside dark.
  3. So what grease is best. Will this stuff be ok for the es gears? And just a light amount like what was in there or load that sucker up? Lol Shocks and arms turned out mint!
  4. I am making headway with the frame though at least. Going to weld the front, bent and cut pipe today. And run another length on both sides near the footpegs where the plow mount was cut off.
  5. Bugger. They really rub inside and figured of the back shock needs no protection the front be ok without too. Is there another model I could upgrade the front shocks with? Like 420 or 4ppex shocks?
  6. That's what I thought. The bronco shock on the back doesn't have anything like that. It is totally exposed. That's what I was thinking, cut it way back.
  7. Question?? I have the front shocks apart. The plastic that is in there on the front shocks. Do I NEED that? Can I just trim it up to the top so the ring is still around the top for spacing but leave the shock exposed? The plastic really rubs on the spring and definitely will just rub the paint off. Thoughts??
  8. Got a spring compressor (highlifter) used for 30 bucks and finally got the springs apart to paint. Got time off work for the ol Covid so going to try to go at this rebuild hard in the next few weeks. Still working on the frame. Lol
  9. Just for you!! Lol I picked up a little sandblaster for the hard to reach spots on the frame. It is taking forever but I want to do it proper. It is really solid just alot of work. Lol And I took the last one for you @shadetree haha
  10. Still working on the frame but A Arms are getting the orange splash!
  11. It looks horrible but is actually really solid besides that front spot. I took the welding hammer to it and couldn't break through anywhere. Ya, frames are, they all rot out.
