    Do you have plans for the old new shock waves? Nice work. I've found myself changing stuff and making myself more work for myself too. Haha

    A common theme I'm afraid. That's what was so great about swap meets! 8-)

    After blasting my door I found some ugliness and here's how I removed most of it so far.

    1/4" bolts stick of wood and a torch.

    using bolts and wood I applied pressure to the low spots and then applied heat, just enough to start the expoy primer to smoke.



    still more to do but its got curve vice flat. will up date as it progress's

    The damage didn't come from the sandblaster did it ? I've been down that road and learned my lesson well. Media abrasives warp a flat panel in a big hurry.

    Not from blasting, blasting is fine if you use small blaster, mine are 1/8 dia. with fine sand with low volume of sand , takes time but no warping. It took me 2.5 hours to do 1 door and still had to DA it a lot, no commercial blasting those guys just want to get it done and out of the shop IMHO. The more I look at the sheet metal on this truck the more I fine that needs repair. Sometimes I wish I had RatRod mentality towards my build, but its just not me.

    shock mount update
    After cutting out the the last ton of steel I having finally finished the cross member for the rear shocks.
    1/4" x 1.5 tube plugged with solid bar stock where shocks mount and in the center where I had to make a small cutout to be sure it would not hit the rear.
    In order to get the shocks to a less than 15 degree angle I also had to make a lower shock bracket, 1/2" plate was used.



    new tails pipes are done just no pic's

    Looking good. I like the way the lower mount bolts in 'cause when it's actually being driven you might find that the 10 or 15 degrees can be added back in to help smooth out the ride, I did. On mine the tops had another hole closer to the middle as well as lower mounts like yours. After driving the car awhile I found the rear suspension harsh, I first moved up 1 hole to gain angle and it was better slightly. So I then moved the tops closer together and it got better still. Maybe someday I'll get fussy and change the springs but it's good as is.
