    This group's been quiet for a while so I figured I'd post an update.After much trial and error and a bit of profanity I managed to get the frame finished and the engine mocked. Wishing I'd added a little more room for the radiator but I can make it work.I had to box in the cab because it kept breaking at the A pillars because of the stress.Anyway I love where it's headed.

    Very nice John.  I must say that you were smart to get that RG engine since now they are a hot commodity!

    I'm glad things are getting back to normal. I'm sure that was quite the scare for you. I can't imagine it. Sending love.

    My subscription virus software won't even let me go to an infected site and I've been on here every day this week. This site is not infected.

    You're welcome guys. The brass is a great idea. I might try it myself.

    Hook and Clevis from Solder
    I didn't find these on the site so if it's a repeat I apologize.
    I needed tow hooks and a clevis for my Land Cruiser so I came up with the idea of using solder. It's pretty simple. For the hook, I started with .062 solder and bent it into a hook. I then flattened it a bit. Next, I used a hobby knife to trim it as close to what I wanted the finished product to look like. After that I filed the hook to the finished product.
    The clevis was a bit more difficult, I used a smaller solder, about 1/16" and using looping pliers I bent it into shape using a picture as a reference. It took about four tries each time to get what I wanted. You have to be careful not to hold the pliers too tight, as the solder tended to flatten quite easily, and I'm heavy handed. It also could have been because it was flux core solder.
    For the clevis pin I used a shorter piece and flattened the end and filed it even. When I got the clevis on the bumper I added a drop of CA to hold the pin in place.

    Welcome John! I'm with you, I just can't get into the whole winter activity thing. Running the snowblower is about as "sporting" as I get.

    Sad news. I've used him a few times. Wish I'd bought for the stash now.
