< BACK Chassis Restoration Begins NEXT >

Here's the chassis without the engine after it was rolled out from under the elevated body. It had spent a couple of hours out in the freezing rain before I cleared enough space to get it inside. Its 17 feet long. At this point space was at a minimum.

Here's the frame after a dozen bags of sandblasting fun. And then after 3 quarts of chassis black paint.

Here's some of the front suspension and brake parts in process.

Here's everything all painted and ready to go back together.

Here are my parts from Fusick Automotive. They had everything I needed for my fram and suspension rebuild. On the left are the leafspring bushings.

Here we have the steering linkage fully dismantled, restored and ready for re-assembly.
