    Nope, bolt in swap. Did find a nasty valve cover oil leak hiding behind the old booster, but that was an easy fix while I had all that out of the way. I can lock up the front tires on dry pavement without putting a lot of effort into it, something i was not able to do before.

    been working on my trailer, adding fenders and whatnot.

    this is what I am starting with, 18x7 flatbed


    in the process of building some drive over fenders, since the sheet metal fenders it used to have were torn off by driving over them.


    Built these brackets:

    which were then attached like so:

    then built the frame of the fender itself.

    thats as far as I got, will finish it next week, work has me busy right now.

    yeah its big enough to haul just about any common car or truck. Have had 2 different f-350s on it, a 93 cab and chassis with a 12ft flat bed and a 99 cc dually.

    Although, I often drive a F450 hauling a 40" gooseneck for work, so trailer size is all relative...

    lol, yeah, nothing pro, but lots of hobby stuff. Built several winch bumpers, a trailer, lots of tools and little stuff.

    buddy of mine scored me a 6'x3' and a 8"x6' piece of 1/4" plate for 15 bucks. Bumper building is fixin to commence after I get the trailer fenders finished.

    so, part of what I said last post was correct.

    [​IMG]

    fenders are progressing, but I ran out of steel, so have to wait until monday for the yard to be open.


    However, in the meantime, something else has started.

    (yes, I know I have a power steering leak, and a bad axle oil seal, the oil seal is 3 kinds of a RPITA and the power steering box needs a seal kit)
