Be sure to coat the inside of the frame to prevent it from rusting from the inside out. It will take approximately 2 cans to do the job. Part #88-1150-1
You will want to remove the 50 years of road grime, rust, etc., before applying POR-15 paint. (If you are not on a budget, you can sandblast the frame and powder coat.) Part #88-0269-1
Once you remove the rust, apply your POR-15 Degreaser and Metal Ready before painting. POR-15 will dry very hard and will not rust, giving the frame a new fresh look!
Now that the chassis is looking fresh, it’s time to start assembling the front suspension.
We have chosen to use the following upgrades-
Tubular control arms: 21-187
QA1 Coil Over system: 21-174
Front sway bar: 57-10298
Rack and Pinion steering: 53-125
(Eckler’s offers several suspension combinations.)
Now with the front suspension mostly completed, it’s time to start on the rear.
We have decided to use a Ford 9” rear end from the 9 Inch Factory. (Ecklers part # 21-238PC)
We have chosen a 3.73 gear ratio, 31 spline for this ride.
Eckler’s offers several combinations of this rear end to fit any need.
