Haha ABSOLUTELY used the hoist! Those days of heavy lifting are long gone.... I have several dollies in the shop I use to move heavy stuff around.

Going to call today a success. Forgot to include an aluminum pan in the shipping box, so first thing was sit the crate back on the ground and open it up. Zip tied the pan so it wasn't just floating around inside the box. Buttoned it back up and put it in the truck. Called around and got some rediculas quotes. Texted Martin and he offered to use his account and set everything up for less than half of what I was being told. Big kudo's goes to Martin for customer support. So with that behind me I could get on with important stuff like make wheel studs. As I outlined before made a stop on my chop saw and cut ten 2-3/4" lengths of allthread. Deburred them, screwed on the jam nuts and welded the backs, effectively making a bolt. Screwed them into the flanges with some loktite, torqued the suckers to 80 ft/lbs. Chassis should be a roller tomorrow.

This heat really saps the energy out of ya. I'm just happy most of what I've been working on is in the house. Not sure if I'll be happy once the electric bill comes in for June. But gotta take the good with the bad I guess.

I can see the heavy use of the welder being reflected in my electric bill. The heat does knock me down some, but I try not to over do it.. cramps in the night are no fun... stay hydrated..

Forgot my disc aren't drilled. I'll carefully transfer the pattern to them. Without having a center to work from I'm stuck with doing a transfer rather than physically laying out the pattern. I'll remove the studs in one axle I just put in. Sit the rotor on the axle hub using a concentric ring to center the rotor and use a transfer punch to mark the location. It's a dual pattern 5x5 and 5x5.5... time to slow down and get it right..

It took time but the hub drilling came out good. Mounted the rotors and brake calipers. The steel 15x15 5x5.5 pattern (ford) wheels don't fit. They bind on the calipers.. I stuck my billet wheels on to make the chassis a roller. Everything on this build seems to have it's own fitment issues that take time to over come. Like I knew I would need rear u joint caps.. they came in and I stashed them somewhere. Took me an hour to find them. I need to call a time out to clean the shop and trash all the boxes I've accumulated. But I'm enjoying the progress...
