Default Progress on the Moscow Mule

I've spent months cleaning, sandblasting,drilling,welding and grinding on the 65 chassis components and frame. I am replacing all the suspension with 1985 C-10 suspension . Replaced all brakes,bearings,and seals in rearend.Completely overhauled the front suspension with all new bushings,tie rods,ball joint,calipers and brakes.
Yesterday we got one step closer.A buddy and I laid down some primer and paint on frame and chassis components. I couldn't be happier to finally be assembly some clean parts. I think it looks pretty good for a couple amateurs in a thrown together paint booth in my shed.

And I had a sense of accomplishment when I oiled the door latches last week.
Indeed it looks good!
