    We also took the body and washed all the primer off with turpentine.

    Flash forward about 4 years and I have decided to take it back apart and put the 500 Inch motor that I bought from Dave that Damon built when they had DiamondBack Engines together,

    I got the motor test fitted but pulled it back out and installed the original 440 till I get some more money for parts....

    Over the last couple of days, I got the diveshaft loop installed, rebuilt the ford 9" that I stuck in it and put in a 4.10 Detroit Locker, with Mosier axles, got the line lock installed, roll cage installed. Need to put the CalTracs on it next week as it has SEVERE wheel hop.

    After I got it back, we stripped the body from the frame, power washed, degreased with oven cleaner, sand blasted, stripped cleaned some more and then finally painted the frame, underside, engine, transmission and everything else.
