No Limit IFS build progress

Here is the last thread to see any previous tear down.
http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/10...-question.html

After removing all stock components and junk I went through the process nice and slow to try and assure I didn't screw anything up. (I hope)
I still need two castellated nuts for my rack rod ends, I need to figure out how much too tighten down my springs in the coilovers, buy some grease to pack my bearings, mount the rotors and my calipers. But for the most part that is normal mechanical bull.

Here is the tentative future plan. I will move onto the back install the No Limit 4 link then remove the cab finish cleaning the frame, install plumbing and then move onto drivetrain.
Moved pics around in photobucket so I am just posting a link to the album

What Motor/ Trans are you going to run, and what lb. spring are you starting with on your coil overs?

I have 302 that I will be dropping in followed by an AOD (still looking for one). When I ordered the kit I told them my future set up I plan on running. The package for the rear springs said 200 and the front said 400 if I remember correctly. I hope that makes sense.

Very nice,………… and very nice work.
The coil over is certainly function and design at its ascetically pleasing best.

Your shop is way to clean.

I have a 400/ C6 w/ a Fatman MII, I put coil-overs on to test and needed 850lb to hold it up it rode great, I had 150 in the rear.
Very nice build pictures!

Beautiful! I feel pretty bad for not painting or having my frame painted. Yours looks great.

Keep the pics coming. Remember all those lil things are going to add up dont forget to keep a spread sheet or something to keep the bills in check.

Thanks for all the compliments. I was nervous while waiting for all the responses. I have done the build myself and have never embarked on something like this before. I got to thank FTE peeps, No Limit and Snook for helping a Novice like me out.

Which, in turn, is good for all the other guys just starting out that may be nervous on doing a full resto. My thoughts are "go big or go home" and build like you ain't you aren't scared! (even if you truly are) lol

I will get some more pictures up once I pack bearings. Thanks again

Nice Job, I am following in your's and the other guys footsteps, so it will be a lot easier with so much documentation. We are about to start stripping the frame to send out for blasting. Keep the progress coming.

Enjoy the build rzns it was a lot of fun so far with some po moments.

Remember to use the tech line at the shop. If they don't answer leave a message and they'll call back. I just got off the line with them and they are a lot of help.

I learned that they purposeful mount there coilovers upside down (left mine right side up). I can't explain it as well as him but made sense to me. Also answered a lot of novice questions o had to finish

Thanks Sam!!!

I am using Rust o leum Hammered paint. For prep I used wire wheel and grinding disks then brushed on. I used a spray can to get inside the boxing plates as much as possible.
