Thanks!
Redneck sho' nuff. Just finished the second leg, now for it to cool, bead blast, paint and reinstall.

Another fab-n-ship? No way, it's too much work for an old fa-- like me. I've put it off for over a week just dreading to lay down and figuring out how to get them out. Found out all you have to do is take 4 screws out of the motor, unbolt the struts from the legs and slide the whole unit out. Now, reinforcing the mount in channel the whole mess slides in may be a whole new ballgame. It looks like 4 bolts and it drops down. We'll see sometime Fri., Sat., or ...?

Sweet OC ! Nice shop too. Those legend cars look cool ! There are a lot of race tracks near my home,well for ohio any how. Obviously Eldora, but we have kil-kare,shady bowl,mid-ohio,Columbus speedway,all within bout 35 mi. I like to watch hometown fellas,with real jobs,n not really any sponsor $, they have to work on n race there own cars. That is how it all started !

Well, finally got the mounting channel off the trailer into the shop and reinforced with 2 pcs of 2" x 2" x 1/8" angle butted edge to edge and skip welded to the top of the channel. Got everything back together without any problems. Added about 24# total to the rear with the legs and the channel reinforcement, but nothing flexes when you put a significant load on them.

Disregard the messy welding table.

But you're young and full of p--- & vinegar. When you get older, you put the effort out for a little while and enjoy the benefits afterwards.

About 4 hrs work and now I'm finished with it. Being retired with time to waste is sometimes beneficial. Having the tools & equip. helps too.
