Thanks guys! I have actually done most of this on the curb! I only just got access to a shop space a month ago!
Yes the 400 will stay in it, I will be replacing the rings and bearings first though.

Lots of progress today, I actually got everything done today that I wanted to get to this weekend.

Started by pulling the rear axle and got the rear onto the trailer.






Then onto pulling the trans and transfer case, I dropped them with the hoist as one piece.


Here she is pretty much ready for scrap


And the frame in it's home for now

Correct, I still have a couple holes in the floor to fix, and the passenger rear 1/4 had a crease I cut out.
I have a patch panel lined up for that and plenty of sheet metal for the floor.
Then I have to get the underside of the body cleaned and undercoated.
Then it will be ready to install and ready for the paint booth.

Sorry I hadn't realized that I did not mention that yet, it is sand blasted then powder coated and baked.
The coating is actually plastic, very durable, completely water resistant and very nice looking!
