For those of you who have heard Beer and I talking about my re-build I thought I would share some photo's of my progress; these are from my 1983 Toyota pickup.

I have removed all the front end components and stripped them down, cleaned, metal etched and painted a rust inhibitor on to be followed by a final top coat of chassis black.

This sample is the driver side upper control arm before cleaning, inspecting and preserving.

I'm now busting 34 years worth of rust, dirt and grim from the front of the frame; (it's the part I hate the most as it all falls on you at some point).

Enjoy!

Looks good, how long do you think it will take to finish the whole truck?
