To do are not to do

Man I am so itchy to get started doing my chassis build. Got the front IFS crossmember welded in still need to add two more pieces of boxing to the chassis to beef up where the strut rod mount is. Got a cardboard template setting where this go,s. I do have the metal cut for this now, plan on welding this in later today. I have a delimma about to build or not to build. At this time the interstate is in the process of buying me out for part of the I269 project. I feel like it may be easier to move with a striped down chassis rather then a chassis which is partly assembled. Below is a picture of the front of the chassis with the cross member welded in. What you guys think you think I should go ahead and get started are wait.

I would go ahead a make it a rolling chassis, definitely easier to move, plus you'll be that far ahead when you get into your new abode.

One more thing...you better work on it if you feel like it... as my project slowly creeps along, some days I just don't feel like working on it, so I take advantage of the days I do. That's just my 2 cents worth, hope it helps.

You'll have to stop by my house some afternoon and check out my 56 all 1000 pieces. When you are going south on Malone I am the second house from the water tanks. I'm usually there if theres a light green ford ranger in the drive.
