Well... The weekend is over and I didn't get as much done as I'd hoped!! I started my front end rebuild Saturday morning. Spent a while pulling off the old junk. A lot of sweating and swearing. I had to cut off the drivers strut because the front bolt was siezed (after pounding and spraying penetrating oil for a couple hours!!! - Finally cut it off with the sawzall and called NPD to send a new one).

I haven't even gotten to the passenger side yet :( I spent most of my time trying to take care of the rust and cleaning up the wheel well. I ended up coating everything with POR15 + ChassisCoat black. Then I topped it with undercoating. It turned out pretty good.

Getting the f*#@ing spindle off the old upper and lowers was a major pain. I still need to install the new sway bar, the strut that's coming and assemble the new disc brakes, but everything else is done on the driver's side. New brake lines etc...

Oh what fun! Probably have at least 2 more weekends before this is finished up. :(

Looks good! Dont feel bad about it taking so long. It will be well worth it in the end because its like anything else, if u rush too get it done, you will make mistakes and it wont be as nice.

Dang! this is a job I got to do on Hoss soon myself. Looks good, patience is the key. It took me a fair amount of time to re-build the rear end in Hoss. I'm moving forward now to the transmission then the front end. I like the under coating job.
