After using metal prep on the frame, coated it with POR-15. Note to those thinking of using POR-15, don't use cheap sponge brushes, unless you have a TON of them on hand!

I'd heard how nasty POR-15 was to get off of the skin, so this is what I wore during application. I borrowed a cool hood from here at work, to keep my head somewhat dry. Basically, it's like a bicycle helmet with a battery powered fan in it, and a hood over it. Worked out really well!

good work.

The last and only time i used POR15 it took at least a week of scrubbing to get it off my hands.

Leafs back from the powder coater, and reassembled. I'm going to redo the clamps, coat them, and put in some rubber strips. Also got the U-joints replaced in the front axles. It was a mother to get the old ones out. Had to use the blue wrench to heat them up.

Everything is now coated. I'll be shooting the chassis black paint later this week. Had to figure out a good way to paint the axles, so I made supports out of 2x4's. Should work good.

Looking good.

But I think you may have a bit too much free time being able to make contraptions like that axle holder....

Very nice, one of my favorite years for a newly converted Ford nut.

Got everything shot with two coats of Eastwoods 2X chassis black over the weekend. Hopefully I'll have time this week to get the suspension assembled, and back to a rolling chassis, except for the brakes, which I'll do closer to final assembly.

Hello, I read through this earlier and I thought I might let You know a couple of things if You didn't already know. First a 460 and a 390 have completely different bell housings so there is no o.d. trans from a ford pick up that will directly bolt to a 390. Second the only disc brake parts from that 79 front axle that may be usable with Your current front axle are the hub and rotors. The front axle You have should have 6 bolt spindles,while the 79 would have 5 bolt spindles. This is where the caliper mount bolts to the spindle/steering knuckle. There are other year parts that might bolt up but the easiest way would be to just use the 79 complete front axle. It is a couple inches wider but I don't think it makes much difference.

I am working on a similar project right now Myself, but the front half of my frame was rusted badly just behind the front cab mounts, so for the ease of p.s. box mounting and a couple other issues I am using a 77 front half of frame, this way I get some slightly more modern ford features while retaining the frame length and width for the box. I know this doesn't concern You but I thought I'd add it in for kicks. Dan

I actually plan on using the entire front axle from the 79 for it's disc brakes. I am currently going with the stock front axle, and drum brakes, until I can get the 79 axle I have apart and cleaned up.

Well, got bit by LMC. I bought an upper coil spring mount bracket from them, since one of mine had the bolt broken off in it, I figured I'd just replace it. Well, it wasn't made right, the spring is REALLY loose in it, dammit. So, brought the old one in here to work, to have the machinist drill it out for me. So much for getting anything else from LMC.


Edit: Guys here at work saved the spring bracket for me. Thank God for machinists!!!LOL!

Bit by LMC: part II. The leaf spring bushings I ordered with that coil spring brackets were screwed up. They fit in the springs just fine, but they were over a 1/4 of an inch too long,so they wouldn't fit in the frame brackets. I had the machinists at work mille them down to fit. Definitively done with LMC.

Spent all day, getting the suspension put together. She is back to a rolling chassis! Here are the pics of the rear end. 2" lift blocks are installed. I won't install brakes or drums until final assembly.

Here is the front end. I still need an adjustable track bar, and a new drag link. The original one is installed now. Brake drums and lock outs will also be replaced later.
