  Cleaning up the old leafs. Rust, dirt, and nasty crusty rust. But, the overall condition is not bad. re useable for sure.

  Cleaning up the shell rubber. Good condition but out of shape as the pressure did some pancaking of the rubber.

  Notching, then grinding the extra width off of the Jeep leafs. I changed out two. The last. and the 3rd. The last is a cradelling leaf, and the 3rd seems to be one of the last major leafs.

  Cutting the notches for the leaf springs. This is simular shape and material for in between the leafs. It's actually garage door weather guard. The only differance is it's slightly wider and it's vinyl. Simular to the original material.

62's Complete underside painting and stuff.

  It's the 2nd of October, and this year the weather seems to be holding out. Most likely caused by NASA's rocket to the moon, again... Guess the weight of the rocket moved it's axes, and changed the weather... LOL :-).... Hmm, could be???...

  Anyway, this was also another productive week. But, this week dosen't seem to have any "home early" days in the schedule. Guess, it's gonna be Sunday, and the later afternoon Saturday... Guess we will just have to want and see... But, we did get a bunch done. Pictures below along with a video.... Inbetween working on the car, and working at my job, I have been verry busy working on the video files from the first to current... But, that one will be unvailed after the car is finished.

  But, these cars are really never finished. There is always something to spruce up, replace, or make better. But, for the most part, we are progressing good this year. See ya next time...

  Here we are lifting the ax up into place across the axel. This is the type that goes on top of the springs.

  They are heavy. Very heavy. This is what is called a 9 inch rear. Back in the day these were popular for hot rods. (NOTE: The term "Hot Rod" means a combination of parts not made for the car. Not necessarly a fast car).

  Bolting down the U bolts and shell. The shell presses against the bottom plate. They must touch. The U bolts are super tight.

62's Re installing the axel.

10-09-13
  Hi Ya everyone!. I had to also work on my pick up truck this week. It was down, and waiting. I did get that fixed, and what time was left I worked on the 62... I did get some things done for underside, but not yet to the door body work. It really isent that big of a deal, but, I want to get the surface rust off and primed for the winter. I would also like to get the car off the jacks for the winter. But, time will tell.

  We still have a bunch to do, but, that can be done in the cooler weather. So, I am hoping to get the car at least the underside done before we have to call it quits for the winter. But you know, we do get nice days during the winter, and I do have a indoor project planned for the car. The seats. Hopefully, if all goes as planned, The seats will be ready, at least to a point for the spring.

  It seems next spring/summer will be the car painting time. Hopefully, the booth will hold out for another winter... With that said, we continue into this winter until the weather get's too cold to do anything.... Here's what was done this week.... More, next week. The weather still looks decent.

Video will follow a shortly...
