    HPD60 ready to get the grinder treatment:


    Leaf mount gonzo:


    Halfway through the rest of the long-side factory garbage....not really a good angle for grinding off that inside weld...the 4.5" grinder does not fit into the space between the bracket and the knuckle too well...decided to eat dinner after this and go back at it tomorrow or Monday:


    Oh and my rear-end is now much more comfortable thanks to PA's black friday sale!

    Not bad for $14.

    Are you stretching the rear? Or will the marks on your frame just straighten the coil? Looking forward to seeing the front stretch.

    Then my early Christmas presents arrived.....39.5x13.5x17 IROKs


    I like!

    Have you started running your numbers through the calculator?
    Looking good!

    Impact:
    The rear will be about a 5" stretch depending on how much the new tank lets me set my axle back. The front will be about a 2" stretch.
    No need to run my numbers through a calculator. With the TMR 4 link kit they figured out all the angles for you.

    More work today.
    Hacked off the rest of that stupid enormous long-side mount:



    Had to hack the short-side mount of piece by small piece as there is not much room to work in there:


    You'll notice I also took off some of the cast spring mount....I need to figure out how far in I can go. I need to get a coil bucket in there somehow. Any tips/tricks anyone wants to pass along would be appreciated for sure!

    Cleaned everything up nice with a grinding wheel...blew one up nice...still blowing pieces of it out of my nose! Safety glasses FTW!





    Off to Canadian Tire to get more of their on-sale 15pk cut off wheels before they are gone!
    Went through 6 of them yesterday and today.

    Yep TMR used this front axle but they did ORI struts up front so they did not need to put a coil bucket.
    They'll have what I need, I just need to see how much of the cast housing I can cut off without affecting where the tube is pressed in/welded.

    Did a little more work this week off!

    Finally got that bastard of a front trac-bar bracket off. Killed 7 cut-off wheels, two sawzall blades, a flap-disc, and a grinding-disc! What a bastard!





    Cleaned up the rusty rear frame where the TMR Customs 4-link brackets need to be welded on.
    Look at that.....I found some actual metal frame under all that salted-rusty goodness!!!!



    Look at those nice brackets....fit like a glove...but I really would expect nothing less from the boys at TMR Customs!



    Next I think I'll clean up some more of the frame...I've got a few parts on the way that I'll post up when I get...then I wait until christmas time and buy my MIG and burn these babies on!
    Like I said...slow...but steady...

    Thanks guys!

    The realization of how many flap-discs it is going to take to clean the frame up is down right depressing lol.

    Thanks for the tip man. Unfortunatly they don't ship up here. At $2.35/ea compared to CT at $9.00/ea it is quite a bit of money.

    Looks like you're cutting with the slighter thicker CT sale discs. They're a whore.

    Stock up http://www.canadiantire.ca/AST/brows....jsp?locale=en

    And PA has the thinny's that go on sale for for 99 cents. I load up.

    POR15 is your friend.. Paint right over all that rust, they recommend it! AND it will never rust again... Another one of those, now is better than later when all your new shiny parts go to crap because of our climate.... They have Canadian dealers, it's easy stuff to get.

    For the amount of discs your going through you could just buy a torch set. If you have a compressor you may be half way to a plasma cutter as well. Keep up the work.
