Well got more stuff done today. I’ll give you the initial plan for the day:
1. Paint back half of frame
2. Do cab mounts
3. Hopefully start working on box mounts
The other day in school, I donated blood (red cross came in and did a blood drive). My body, apparently, did not like that so much, and I ended up passing out (while I was standing up in my engineering class) and fell and hit my face on a table. I hit my front teeth, which thankfully didn’t break or get fully knocked out, however they were loosened. So I had to go to the dentist and get my teeth fixed and they said no heavy lifting for probably hopefully 2 weeks. So putting the bed on would be iffy as to whether or not I could do that.
So here is what I proposed we do since we didn’t have much time before lunch:
1. Do body mounts (cuz we could theoretically get it done before lunch)
2. Paint frame when back from lunch.
3. Work on bed if we have time for it
Dad said sure, why not, that makes sense. Famous last words.
Instead, we got the old body bushings out and when we took those out, we also took all of the metal touching the bushings with it. So that threw a wrench in the plans. We were able to fix the body mounts (replaced the top part of the body mount, primarily where the bushing touches). So all in all, the body mounts/lift was an all day affair.
Since we couldn’t completely remove the cab and front clip because that would entail taking out radiator, misc lines, steering, etc, it made welding the new pieces in an absolute PITA!
