Canít believe how much an 1 1/4 axle flexes with only two bearings. Adding 3rd bearing to middle of axle.

Third bearing installed. Reverse and neutral light drilled and installed into headlight bucket. Thinking about putting these belt buckles onto the wing. I have one for each branch of the military. Trying to figure out best way to put them on. Pop rivet but would see rivet.

Down to bare frame. Reinforcing motor mounts and other brackets. Final weld up.

Had trouble getting engine out so made side access. Just un bolts and slides out. Still need to drill bolt hole. (Last few pics)

Welded gussets in and final welddone. Next is to clean up some of my welds and clean prep for paint. I am using two $20 POR15 starter kits for paint. They are $20 each. So $40 in paint cost. Thatís cheaper than say rattle cans. And por15 is rock hard as nails.

Enjoy

I remember that Por15 has always been your go-to paint for your builds. It seems to work really well
