drilling different materials require different methods... some many people can not grasp this. different tapers of the bits, cutting lubes, and speed of the bit

Used a standard 118 drill bit and variable speed drills trying to turn the bit as slow as possible without stalling the drill. Same way I always drill steel and have never had an issue in the past but the drills were not meant for drilling holes that size.

The bits I broke off were smaller bits that were under 3/8".

Only issue with this was the steel was harder being that I was drilling into weld, my bits were dull from years of use and I didn't have cutting oil until I set up the drill press. Drilling by hand didn't work because I couldn't get enough force on it to bite until I go the old 1/2" iron worker drill from the farm but by then the hole was not true because part of the hole was the original cast and part of the hole was new weld and the bit "walked" into the softer metal because i was drilling by hand.

Well it's taken a little longer than I hoped and part of it was due to a 1 month vacation in India. That's being said 1 have 2 complete driveshafts. The rear one is just waiting for a centering ball and then the cv joint can be put back together. The front one is currently drying and waiting for the second coat of paint and then it can be installed.

I have also started dabbing up my front bumper. I have gotten about 1/4 of the way through it today.

Before it can really be driven the exhaust needs to be redone, a wheel alignment check, rear embrace caliper springs sourced for the eldorado caliperd and a return spring for my driveline brake. Anyone know where a guy can find tension springs?

front drive shaft with a little bit of cheese factor



Front bumper

All tacked up and fitted.



Post welding and grinding. Ran out of mig gas. Still wanting to drill some holes on the lower skid and possibly do some dimple die work.

washed off 7 years of dust tonight. Felt pretty good.





Transmission is being a little goofy. OD light was flashing and it was a dog to get going. Seems to be having some issues with a couple solenoids. So have to do some troubleshooting tomorrow and see if its just dirty contacts or if I have to drop the pan again and change out a solenoid.

I have full coverage mud flaps which is technically all I need. The front frame and bumper height is fully legal. Lights etc are as well. Mufflers being held on with wire and bungee cords.

I plan Bo build some removable wheel coverings that are integrated with the mud flaps and tie into the front bumper over the next while.
