The progress you can make in a week or two is admirable ZZ! I just want to know how you keep your shop so clean with all that welding and grinding going on? When I spend even and hour or so fabricating, my place starts to look and smell like an old foundry!

Heh, heh, I just swept it before the pics, every day a dustpan full of grit. Lots of crud hiding in the corners and on just about everything else. Once the Packard is gone, I'll get my leaf blower and blast everything out the door - or further into the corners Yep, it does stink of burnt metal, the smell of progress

Rear suspension all sorted out, just need disassembly and finish welding. I used the F100 Ubolts and mount plates to mount the control arms and save $$$. The shocks came from the donor too, they had been recently put on it, in good shape, heavy duty ones, why not.
Axle mounts are just tacked for now in case I need to adjust the pinion angle later.



Two days worth of grit production from fabbing the rear suspension....

Great work!

Yes, keeping the shop clean as you go helps. It still gets dirty. They don't show that on TV.
