Default started working on the '56 this weekend

with no time to wheel and no space to work on the jeep had to start something, dawn is doing all the painting. I've got a chassis guy setup to install the '67 camaro front sub-frame

I hope so, hopefully dawn has learned enough about painting. the main reason for the work is that it's dawns truck and to make it hers and so she can drive it.

update we changed over to putting a '84 C10 frame under the '56 body, few little twists and tweaks should fit no problem. the flickr link has all the updated photos.

also got the Jeep back on the road/drivable toasted the rear CV driveshaft, causing an abnormal shaking and growling noise

Don't worry there's still two tires on the ground.
