:) That's an unusually good-looking frame, John; no pits, etc. Did you use a skim coat of heavy-build primer-surfacer on it, or was it just that nice to begin with?

Nice work indeed; the pictures of projects underway are greatly appreciated by all, acting as an encouragement! [:p] [8D] BP

Bob, the frame was potected with oil & grease so much I had to use a putty knife and laquer thinner to clean. Just back past the trans. cross member. The rear will come later.

If that's the car in question at the bottom of your posts, I'd like to see a bigger picture of it. Looks good!
