Well the frame is tacked at 23 1/4" on the stretch.
Rear end is out.

Next steps:
Rear brakes
Brake cylinders
turn the drums
new ss brake lines
rear brake hose
shocks
mount the air bag holders

then to the front suspension...Batmobile

I sealed some areas where I don't intend to be welding and also that will be hard to access once the rear suspension is back in-place. Also sealed the airbag mounts.





Blue? Well I kept thinking about the blue hue comic book hair for some reason...wait I think that was Superman...well, whatever.

well these dang axle housing bushings were quite the pain, but finally got them swapped.



rear end is finally done, just need to plumb the brake lines




waiting on the airbags - should be here this week



Finally sitting back down on her own shoes....down on the bumpstops





Happy with how it turned out. Probably should have thrown some rear discs on it, but maybe for later....
Finally on to the front suspension ....more to come...
