How cold was it in Larryโ€™s garage? ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ‘

Not bad at all, as long as the door is shut!  His heater keeps it nice.

Thanks!  It should be an asset.  We have a couple more items planned to add to it for more functionality.

We got a lot accomplished this week.  Final cleanup on the bumper with primer and paint.  Got it installed today.  It all went together as we planned.  We got it all mounted up with 5 grade 8 bolts per side so I'm pretty sure it's not going anywhere.  

 

After blending in a couple of welds we shot some self etching primer on it.

We then shot the parts with our favorite semi-gloss tractor paint.

We let the paint dry since Friday and installed it this morning.  Bill packed the bearings and installed a new hub seal I picked up the other day at work.  

 

The workbench was rolled into position so we didn't have to carry it across the garage.

It's on and swingarm installed.

Closed and locked in place.

Thankfully our measurements were on the mark for the tire location.  Left light is not obscured by the tire and as a bonus the tire does not block the window in the door at all.  Just a couple of inches in where the tire is widest.  Much better than the tire dead center like it was.

The hub and lock side of the swing arm.

Light is very visible.  It will still be when I put the same size tire on the wheel that I have on the ground.

I had to take the truck out to test the action on the latch on crappy washboard roads.   So I went 9 miles back into the wildlife area the west of our local reservoir. The Banks sticker was a joke by my buddy Bill.  He said it "needed" something right there. It's coming off.

The driver's side.

Had to take the obligatory poser shot at the bank of the Arkansas River.

We still need to build the basket for the fuel cans, table, step and close out panel between the bumper and body.  Much smaller projects we can knock out indivdually.  

 

Super happy with the results so far.

Looks nice but I always thought the Arkansas river was pretty.

Oh and bumper looking good as well. :)
