the Projekt has Begun !!
Hurray my projekt has begun !!!!
This Weekend my jeep turned from somthing drivable with rust. to
a frame and a pile of parts.
yesterday where the frame was on axels,with the engine mounted. it looked like a doable projekt.
but Today with just a bare frame , broken bolts and rust
it feels like i am in over my head.
the frame was in pretty good shape exept from some broken ībolts and some rust in the rear of the frame.
my plan is , to bring the frame and axels to work, get them sandblasted, paint axels and springs, bring frame back to garage and fix rust, holes and broken bolts.
then back to work and antirustprimer then blacktopcoat.
i will then start putting the axels on again and end up with a drivable frame.
then the rebuilding of the Chassis begins it will need replacement panels all over the bottom and needs to be sandblasted and have a new paint job.
i just hope that it doesent take too long to get it back on the road, i will not be modyfying alot, just lifting the dana 300 up and adding a roolbar.
i am looking forward to drive a restored jeep instead of driving somthing that would have fallen apart in 5 years.
i hope that all of you that have done frameup restos will , post help and ideas , an i promise that i will post pictures of the progress.
My jeep is just a big pile of parts.
