thanks guys, hopefully i can pull off top three again this year and @thebeal we might have to take advantage of that this year lol











well i got the frame torn down and blew some black in her, started to fix the big hole the previous owner cut for a stack, made my light mount to put in the grill, the mini front bumper is built, put some washers behind the steering gear to get rid of some of the slop
i just got the 3/8 heim joints in the mail friday to finish off the steering

im not sure what type of tranny is in it, a 3spd hi/lo if anyone knows the madel it would be awesome cause it needs some seals, and the tires do look good on it, but we got some paint on her and some mock up/assembly

Is that front axle steel or cast iron? Also, can you upload a pic of the steering setup at some point? I'm curious as to what makes these things tick lol

Paint looks great though! What color you thinking for the body?
