    C987C2A6-F7EC-4AF8-808F-0BD709D4A7C9.jpeg The frame is pretty well stripped down. I just need to pull a couple more things for it to be ready to get chemical dipped and e-coated. A few things have caught my eye about the frame, though. The welds on it are pretty shoddy. They are really cold, too low wire speed, and lots of porosity. Lots of cats whiskers too. Also, I noticed that there are only exhaust hangers on the left side of the frame even though the line setting ticket says dual exhaust and the body has both heat shields.

    E7E98F88-34BC-4CEE-A5FF-D2C942F859EF.jpeg It’s been a while since I posted last. I blew out a knee, so that slowed me down some. I go in to get it fixed on Friday, so hopefully I’ll be back at it again soon. My frame came back from chemical stripping and e-coating and looks awesome. It’s completely coated inside and out. Should be good for years to come. I’ll be doing this to all the sheet metal as well.

    I'm jealous , about the frame not your knee , On the weekend I separated my frame from the tub. Your frame looks like it came out pretty nice . Good luck with your knee hope things go well
