    Second that! Not bad looking welds, but turn up the amperage and get better penetration on those welds. They will be stonger and look even better.
    Burn it and beat on it

    No, just the frame.

    On the diff housing welding, I had my Hobart MVP210 maxed out, but turned it down for the tube welding, will keep it higher next time.
    Thanks for the input!

    Shifting into overdrive, working to get this red pig on the ground, a lot more updates coming soon!

    Chili and I got the front axle in place! Gonna start mocking up the 3 link arms to get the brackets set and figure out how much stretch I can do.

    Thanks Eric!

    I Completly disassembled the rear hubs; replaced parking brake hardware and backer plate/dust shield and new bearings and seals.
    Installing new bearing cups required two set-tools and I did not want to pay $100 for tools I would prolly only use once. So I made my own using the old bearing cups, then flapper wheeled the sides down so they barely fit. Worked perfect!

    if you ever need something turned like that, i do have a lathe that makes quick work of things like that for a more precision fit.

    Other than painting the calipers and the diff cover, the rear is ready to stick!
    This weekend I'm picking up 30' of 2x3" tubing for the rear back half stretch and will widen my trailer with the rest of the stock.

    AFTER~

    Crap I see something wrong already. You might have to redo a few things.
