Got my wheel cribs in to make wire wheeling the underside easier. I have a pair for the rear but since i dont have brakes i decided against using them for now20170525_165450.jpg

Been trying to decide on the rear suspension and after much consideration i decided to stick with leaf springs and upgraded shocks. So ive ordered 4.5 Mid eye leafs and blisstein shocks from SOT so my who suspension matches.. Just cant justify a 4 link for my build. 

 

Im also debating on what to do about wiring...I really want to go American Autowire but i probably can slavage the wiring in it...but id like upgraded fuses and well new wiring so i dont have to chase deamons

Got the top of the cowl welded back up and cleaned up a bit. Also got frustrated with how disorganized and filthy the garage was so i organized and cleaned up to make room. MTF Eleanor kit should be on its way soon

Well you always learn lessons the hard way. I was very frustrated welding my cowl covers in. It was spattering really bad and i have no idea why. After i ran out of wire i went to tractor supply and bought some Hobart wire and all of a sudden my welds started working better with way less spatter...So now i know to stick to name brand store bought wire. . So i have a lot of grinding and cleaning to do on the cowl

Weird.  I wonder if it was contaminated with something.

Related: I've noticed at work the MIG tends to splatter when it's on an extension cord.
