Been way too long since I did an update on this. I have been working on it as time and money allows, hour here and there. So far I got the rims back from powdercoat and replaced all the missing hub cap clips and had the tires mounted. They look nice \:D/

I have also been working on cleaning up the undercarriage. Wire wheeled the surface rust and coated the belly pans to the back end so far. Sealed up nicely and will hopefully keep it from rusting, or at least slow it down.

I also had the reduction boxes, spring plates, backing plates etc blasted and are now painted. I also got my rebuilt trans out and flipped the differential (was built for a lowered bus originally) so now it's ready for axles.

Hoping to get the rear drums turned tomorrow.

Thanks guys. Hoping to put the reduction boxes together this weekend, waiting on the bearings. I thought all the ones I pulled out during disassembly looked good, that was until I cleaned them up and they were all pitted. ](*,) So now I am at the mercy of parts. Slow and steady.
