;D---- The kit looks sweet Bob. Can't wait to see it in person. I agree, I would feel like a kid on christmas. Only it would be more like a kid waking up in a candy store with the easter bunny on christmas day.
I had some time to work this weekend.. I pulled the trans pan down and replaced the filter. Last time i was out something just didn't seem right.
Today I removed the old trans cross member. I pulled both front springs and shocks. The upper and lower control arms are off. The brake lines are out. I pulled the front axle out. I installed the new upper control arm mounts, trans mount and skid plate. There is a whole lot or drilling to install these. The news skid plates wrap all the way under to the rockets. They bolt to the seam welds under the door. It seems pretty beefy. I cut the old upper control arm brackets off. I just have to grind and clean up.
I noticed some rust on the drivers rocker that i will have to address soon.
Sorry i didn't get any pictures today. i was too dirty to grab my camera. I will try to get some later. Hopefully next week end is as nice. I can finish this up.
