You sticking with the IFS or going SA? Please say IFS so I know that you are still a Toyota purist... :o) Doing my frame was perhaps the most annoying part of my build! The entire frame was thoroughly covered with that nasty tar-like undercoating that was popular around here in the late 80's/early 90's. Talk about a major PITA to remove!!!

I wondered how you did yours. I do the same thing. Getting in all the nooks and crannies takes a while but about the only way I know of doing it with out blasting it. Drive train looks great.

this is not the way I do it normally do it ... usually I start with a bare frame , sand blast it , and go from there . My trekker I didn't sandblast , but it was a real nice , nice frame to start with . I really wasn't planning to go this far , but I just cant seem to come to terms with just letting the "little things" go .. I seem to need to fix them ... I think I have some sort of disease or phobia

Joel has been a huge help on this .. and to keep up with him today we had to mount the tranny and engine to get the positioning for the new mounts .
I used some round tube I had , worked out great ...

ok , so now we're done with the fitting of the engine .. time to make it perdy

first I started with removing the pan .. for those whom don't know , the original oil pan and pick up on the 5Vzfe wont fit this application . so as you saw in the previous pictures , I already powder coated the pan I need ..
With the pan off , I can now drill the new dipstick location .. and install the new holder
installed with a little red LOCKTITE just for "piece of mind"

Are those "cheater marks" on the cam gears that I see so you don't have to re-do the timing later?? Just kidding, I do the same thing!!! HAHA! I hate having to re-time dual cams!

I really need to get some of that chrome powder to give it a whirl! That stuff looks really good - makes the gold pop really nice too! I particularly like how it looks more like polished and cleared aluminum than it does chrome (or at least that his how it come across in the pictures)

of course ....
I ordered some clear coat for the chrome powder , suppose to make it look more like chrome . I was kind of going for a gold and silver look , on these , and I think I have achieved exactly that ? I'm really happy with the colors , and I think it's going to go great with the brown engine bay color and exterior

You do have every nut and bolt out of that frame. You are making some quick work on this truck.

also checked the rear harness for damage , and re wrapped




POR15'ing the frame , you need to remove all the "lock" clips , so this is what I use to lock the harness into place

straps not yet tightened , as I may need to move the harness one way or the other
