Should have it all ready by the end of tomorrow! Pics then! But to keep you guys happy, here is some pics of a 1948 refrigerator I am doing some drawing on for my boss.

    Been kickin butt on this truck!! Between school and finals and work and spendin time with crazyhorse55, I've been real busy, but since I've last updated I have pulled the whole front axle and took it apart and cleaned it up, and I have gotten all new bushing/shackle kit for it, ready to be put back on! I can't wait to see the stance! Hopefully I'll have the axle installed today, and y'all will be seein some pics! Updates later today!

    Forgot to mention, got everything motor and tranny ways bolted/tacked into place and they are ready for final welding, and I got the front clip and some dash parts in primer! But as far as todays updates go, I haven't gotten as much accomplished as I would have liked.. It started out as a struggle because the U-bolts didn't want to go on, and then after we got that problem solved, we just continued to run into more and more problems.. So, the front end is close to being re-installed, It'll be a day or two (Due to school) Before I have updates
     
  24. There's good days and bad days.

    Keep goin'..........
    1st time it moves under it's own power will make it all worth it!

    Then at 7 tonight.. I finally got it re-installed all the way, right down to the grease zerks.. And it was on a school night! Haha!

    Got all new bushings and shackles and grease zerks and got the springs lower, and new main bold for the springs, new clamps for springs, and new bolts for bushings, so I'm all set to be safe!

    (Sorry for the crappy picture, there isn't much light that late in the shop)
