Tom you might have missed this on page 5. Wink

It only looks smooth because of the 1/2 gallon of filler -primer roll

I'll do the subframe just like this rust puckered oil pan. I'll load the primer on really heavy and then sand it off leaving the holes filled

I spent Saturday with Bob.. The 1/4 ia coming out totally awesome.. My camera failed to focus on any of the closeups of the tig welds Frowner Next time I'll try harder..( no its not cuz of the empty box of Bud Light wiseguys) I think Bob and I have agreed in the interest of mixing things up and because of the fact that he's a killer tig welder that we are going to remove only the rusted radius on the drivers side and leave as much of the original 1/4 as possible... just for the heck of it.. (This side was dented at the rear etc so for this side this was the best choice)

I'm not redoing the belly but thought you guys might like to see how a set of original shocks and lower brackets that I got ( this car had air shocks and traction bars) match the rusty patina to a T.. Looks like the shocks are originals in there don't it Wink

Tom, any chance you could get some close-ups of the shock to axle plate mounting bolt head and nut so I can look for the correct ones to use?

Those are "T" bolts and I changed mine because the traction bars took the place of the plates and had u-bolts..Mine are regular spring shop "T" bolts but I can have a look at my other cars..I bet that AMK co. makes the correct "T" bolts.. I'll get back with you on them..

Tom,

Thanks for the T-bolt direction. What I am trying to determine is what bolt and nut was originally used to attach the shock absorber to the plate under the axle.

Spent as much time as I could sanding.. WAY more work than I had suspected.. I wetted it up for a gloss visual.. Back in the day I'd have base/cleared a sand job this nice!
I'm less than half done and about 8 hours deep.. Roll Eyes
