And another update....rolling along nicely now
A few more parts were purchased.
One of the front frame rails.
Front frame rails cut and installed along with the rear cross member.
I got some cutting and drilling oil. It cut the drilling time in half!
The front cross member.
Holes drilled and centers marked.
Checked for fitment.
Ground clearance check. I raised it up to 1/4".
I rounded the ends of the front cross member.
Soapstone used for the more precise marking. This is one of the front axle pieces before being bent.
A test fit with the front cross member on the rails with the axle pieces laid out.
The two coupling nuts centered on the steering rack.
The steering rack all set up and assembled.
A slightly blurry image of the front end test for fitment.
The front end with the steering rack and steering pivot thingy.
My apologies for another blurry image. This is the bracket for the handle held with a clevis pin and clip.
Tomorrow comes the fun part. Welding it all together! Then final grinding. I will add some pics with tomorrows update. then the final update will have the whole thing painted and stickered. Stay tuned for the good stuff!!
