            progress update

            I cut out the crap on the right side (passenger) and got it all cleaned up. As I cut the one side of this diagonal brace loose it simply fell out as the welds on the other side were nothing more than a big glob of bird turd. I've got some of the new pieces cut and will get them in place today. Dave

              so how long do you have to paint this gem......turd, before the show ?? have you got time to rebuild the hole thing before the show ??
              better keep track of the time you put in, no telling what might happen when the guy that sold it see's it. you are getting $$ for the weld repair work right.
              thanks for the help
              ......or..........
              hope i helped

                  Boot to the head!!!!!

                  OK. I weld for a living but it's mostly diameter restoration on ink rolls for printing presses. I wouldn't even try to compare my skills to any of you guys. I'm an ex Ford mechanic of 10 yrs. and found more money when I took this job. I welded as a hobby before that. But my point is I consider myself an amateur for the most part, but I still couldn't weld as bad as that idiot even if I tried. He might as well have duct taped that car together. In fact, that might just be an improvement. Maybe Elmer's glue. When I was wrenching for a living, that POS never would have made it in the shop. That steering linkage is just plain stupid. The Moron that out that thing together needs to have the possible consequences of his actions explained to him/her. putting that kind of work on the road is simply inexcusable. If you're going to learn how to weld, don't learn on something you plan on driving down the highway.

                      Horrible welds and engineering

                      It's alwasy amazes me how long some things will last with horrible welds jobs done and outragous ideas. After some of these engineering jobs fail, some good welder will be asked, What happened and can you fix the problem?" Then that poor welder will set back and ask why in the **** did someone do something like this and now wants me to fix their crap. You're right, some people shouldn't be allowed to come up with ideas like this let alone attempt to weld junk like this but at least these pictures are cheaper to laugh at that paying to listen to a stand up comedian.

                        don't be stupid, elmer's glue won't work, Dave is MUCH better than that!
                        I was thinking Gorilla glue !!!!
                        Dave, is he paying you for all your labor? Seriously, I would have just painted the car, that's all you'd be associated with. Of course, knowing you and he IS an old friend, I wouldn't want him to get hurt either, and would do what you are doing! Thanks for the pics, keep 'em coming, and God Bless

                          Got the right side part way done today

                          Given the time frame (less than 30 days) and materials at hand, I came up with what I thought would be functional, yet fairly quick set up for the front end. I started welding it up tonight and will still make some caps and maybe another gusset or two, but here's what I got so far.

                          If any one has any ideas or suggestions I'm all ears. Dave

                              Wow Dave,

                              You get all the "Good" jobs. Not much I can say that hasn't already been said. You know my position on this kind of work being done by amateurs & fools. 'Nuff said.

                              I realize that you are on a budget, and have time constraints, but if you are looking for ideas on how to get this rig done and functional, take a few minutes to surf around Kelderman's site for the different suspension brackets, and crossover steering on the Fords. It may help.

                              http://www.keldermanairride.com/lift-kits/

                              If you had leaf springs on all 4 corners, I could send you in a different direction:

                              http://www.gearztv.com/index.php?em2...2463=&ek=97442

                              Check out the custom drop brackets on Sgt. Rock. It may give you and idea on how to tackle the back end without having to fab up either a Hotchkiss or 4-link w/Panhard bar setup.

                              Front end, you're still looking at longer radius arms to get the axle to swing in the correct arc to make everything work.

                              Don't forget to keep checking your u-joint angles & keep them in range.

                              Good luck.
                              Later,

                                If you're going to learn how to weld, don't learn on something you plan on driving down the highway.


                                i don't think he is trying to learn. i suspect he thinks he is a great welder. most likely welding on all his friends car's and trucks as well. this cant be a one time thing. this guy is all about stupid.
                                thanks for the help
