    I had a couple hours tonight to start welding the front end parts together. A few pics are below. I ended up using a spring compressor's 5/8" bolt to help align some of the suspension tabs. It's good to finally have some parts welded together and square..










    Kid was happy too:

    I was always told to 'measure it with a micrometer and cut it with a chainsaw.'

    Thanks for the responses and welcome. It looks like my next real 'free time' to work will be Sunday when the wife and kid go to a party for a few hours. I was reading through RickS' plans earlier tonight looking for places to screw up something. He does a great job on his plans of putting 'PAY ATTENTION.'

    It appears a nice steel stud/MDF build table would really help with making sure the frame is flat and square. My weld table isn't quite big enough to fit the larger frame sections, and it's definitely not perfectly flat.

    Build table examples on locostusa website:

    I got a box of goodies from Rick today, and I spent about three hours on the internet cross-shopping hardware websites and ordering precision heims and jam nuts. Fun fun!!!
