    Started putting new control arms on and needed to replace the mounting bushing/tube. Here's some pic's of the work.
    old one

    old one getting cut away

    new one needed to be turned down .100" to fit existing holes.

    all welded in

    a little grinding and back to the paint booth.

    I once used the lower crossmember for the radiator overflow tank---------Since the car used an antifreeze mix there was no rusting issues and it allowed a little cleaner area around the front

    I like the boxing and the triangular gusset on the backside. Should be hell for stout.

    Cool

     



    I also remember them used for grinding stands and vise stands. Youth, ain't it wonderful? Got a case of it the other day when one of the Mustang Boys was driving one of our old delivery trucks, called and said it was flooding and would not run. Told him the choke gets stuck sometimes and he should just prop it open. Mustang boy is in his late 30's and had no idea what I was talking about since he has never had a carburetor before. I sure felt old.

    Got the cab blasted and sealed with epoxy primer this weekend. Should have done a few months ago the heat inside my blasting suit was body melting if that's possible . One thing it sure show up a lot more little dents.

    Now to do some body filler.
