Thanks!  Its getting there.  


Today I got the tranny bolted in, the rest of the brake lines ran, e-brake cables hooked up, tie rods painted, steering box degreased, and the brakes bled out but the front brakes wont build pressure.  I bled the brakes out after figuring out that I had the calipers on the wrong sides. Just need to paint the steering box now!

I finished the clean up on the steering box today.  I pulled the pitman arm and the steering knuckle and blasted and painted those.  I wire wheeled the steering box and painted it aluminum.

That looks like some great welds. What type of welder setup you use? That pan is awesome!

Thanks! Not too bad for a shade tree mechanic

I am using a Hobart 135 with 75/25 mix and .024 wire

Been working on Stitch....lol Patched up the rusted area along the seal and fender bolt area using some pieces from a car that was cut up

Gordon's 1962 Gulf Blue Ragtop - Page 3 1895310

Also got most of the rust on the passenger side cut out and patched. Still have to deal with a few areas along the seal
