    Thank you, It really doesn't take that much extra time to detail what your working on. Just think ahead of the process when assembling.

    Got all the suspension parts and pieces cleaned, rebushed and crossmembers built plus painted. It won't be long and new frame rails will be on the way.
    Which I cut the flanges for the engine bay and set them up and mag drill for suspension mounts then pre-paint the inside of rails. When I get the rails
    done and suspension plus axles under it I will post some photos then.

    Many things like the air tanks are new because of too much crud in the old ones and air valves basically the same.
