Chapter Two

Postby Camarogenius » Thu May 18, 2006 8:05 am

Okay, this is the start of chapter two. Nothing much to post pics of yet, Just alot of wire brushing, and grinding on rivets.
My Shop has fallen victim to family Drama/politics, so I'm still working outside, But I WILL NOT BE DEFEATED!!! I'll continue to work outside if that's what it takes to drive a Tremor!
It's been said that a project is worth exactly what you put into it, so that just makes mine worth a little more!

Haven't cut the frame yet. Just grinding and priming. Nothing worth pics yet, but I'm still alive and at it as much as I can find the time for.

Well, I cut the rear frame rails. It broke my heart tolose the home for that huge 40 gallon fuel tank, but it had to be done. Almost done getting the frame cleaned up, just some rivets to deal with. I should be buying steel this week or next.

Wow my frame looks naked!! Finally got everything off of one side of the frame, and just a few more body mounts to go on the pass. side. I'm not touching the front core support mounts yet, because they're integral to the front spring hanger, and I want to move very carefully here, to preserve the strength of the front spring hanger. I think after I'm done with this post, I'll run upstairs and post a question about front spring hangers, maybe troll for some pics.

Hey your body mounts looked like FUN. I had the same problem, they pretty much fell apart :D or had to be beat into submission :twisted: . I have a similar problem with working outdoors. I have a big garage just never liked the cramped up feeling of being inside. I know it sound weird. I just always worked outside (before garage) and I guess you cant teach someone as stuborn as me :D anything new. Keep the pics comming!
