Been working on the Mutt lately and started off by stripping the chassis and getting it ready to cut out the pans.

Once I got it stripped down out came the old pans and also snatched out the torsion bars and spring plates.

Didn't get much done today but I did pull the torsion bars,plates, and caps from this old swing axle rear end so I can get it all cleaned up and ready to install in my axle.

You made those pans look awesome! Did you use a sandblaster on the pan before you painted it?

Thanks. No sandblasting just a lot of sanding and wire wheeling for what seemed like days.

This weekend I took a break from the chassis and spent some time on the body. Got the molding, door handle, and fender holes welded up and smoothed.

Little more progress this weekend got some engine pieces painted.

Started off by getting intake parts sandblasted and cleared them to keep the machined look.

Then shot epoxy on the rest of the parts to get ready for color.

Then came the color.

Not much picture wise but the Mutt is still moving along. The metal and body work is slow and boring for pictures but here's a couple just to show progress is still being made. Got the gas lid cutout and filled along with the passenger side door handle and molding holes.

Also found some old damage to the rear quarter which required grinding out a ton of old bondo.
