I did not think I was going to go this far, but I was only fifteen or twenty fasteners away from pulling the frame so why not. Need to pick up some jacks and blocks from my uncle tomorrow to get the back a bit higher. Should be able to pull the frame out Sunday if all goes well.

Going to pressure wash the frame, POR 15 it and top coat it. Then put the frame back under it. Also need to replace some u-joints and check the brakes,this might take awhile.

Had a lot of loose paint and undercoating on the frame. Scraped and sanded it then wiped it down with alcohol, used the recommended metal prep next. Washed the prep off after it reacted for thirty minutes and waited for it to dry. Only did the passenger side, hope to finished the driver side Saturday.

Rain,rain, and more rain. Tropical Storm Cindy is dumping lots of rain on us for a few days so the frame top coat is on hold for now. Did pick out a top coat for the frame from NAPA. A friend of mine used it and liked the results. It is kind of what you would see from the factory, which is what I wanted.

Pulled the front axles to replace u-joints and a few other things. Waiting on a few parts from BJ's. Cleaned up and primed the housing.

Decided to top coat the frame because the POR15 I used has no UV protection in it, and it will get a white haze over time. Sanded it with 320 and hit it with two coats of chassis black from NAPA. Very happy with it. Came out nice.

Built a body cart so I can wheel it in and out of the barn. Also wanted it safe when we start cutting out the floor pans.

Pulled the body out of the barn for the first time on the body cart. Rolled fine, but you need two people to keep it moving in the right direction with the four swivel wheels.

Pressure washed the underside of the Wagoneer today. Just want to get all the dirt and grease off. Not worried about the undercoating. I think I want to use a product called Raptor. This is the before pic.
