Got some work done yesterday and tonight. Cleaned the outer parts of the steel rims I will be using, they are ready for the rings and paint. Also cleaned the drive flanges and hubs. Now I just have to pack the hub bearings with grease.
The rear axle is all but done; Received my caliper brackets from EORP and bolted them on. Now just need to add brakes, brake lines, and drive shaft, along with gear oil for the axle to be complete.
The front axle,
this is going to take a bit longer. Started building the front truss, it is coming along nicely. Made a jig out of card board and traced it to some steel, then cut it out using the plasma. Used a bender for the bridge, that thing is awesome! With my caliper brackets, I also received the heim brackets and heim joints. Cannot wait until the FJ40 has a front axle attached to it again. Now back to some school work, here are some pics.
