Not much of an update, but I thought I would simply post some pics of the retrospective rework and progress, decided to get the frame powder-coated. Front, top, rear, left side, right side and underside. I took my liberty to have it done in Gloss Black. They used 2 mill thickness on the powder. Now I need to start assembling it.

It will definitely be the nicest one ever! :10 But be careful Mark or it will only be good for a museum piece, you won't want to drive it lol.

I think so too, I it is the best powder-coating of any part that I ever had done.

Yes, finally I decided if I am going to do it I might as well do it right.

I found some pics of the frame after i had it media blasted and finished filling the rust pits with Lab Metal then sanding it to prepare for powder coating.

Next will be the front axle assembly.

Let me see if I'm mixed up or not lol. The pics above were already black powder coated right? Then you decided to make it even better and had it blasted again, then did the filler, and will have it powder coated again? :confused1
