reassembly of part of the front axle.
it was not easy to compress the spring ^^.
the ground of this garage is of the ground, and a small wind and the dust of the ground this poses everywhere. suddenly there is dust everywhere on the new paint chassis :( 
I'll have to clean the entire frame with the sponge.

Hello everyone, here are some pictures of the work.
so I continue with the rest of the front train.
some pieces were already anti-gravel and other no, so much to do I have to iron.

before:

I saw that there was the side pulling driver who was twisted (probably an old accident).
so I took the tie to a garage equipped with a press to straighten the tie rod. Normally I'll get it back on Saturday.
I also controlled the front of the frame to see if he had moved, not nothing has moved, everything is right :)

Don't forget to ground your tank since you painted where the straps go, otherwise your sending unit won't work.

 

 

Hello ,  thank you wndsofchng06 :) 
Sorry I did not understand (or the translator did not translate well), what do you mean by "sending unit"?
thank you ;)

Windsofchng was saying that the fuel tank needs to be grounded for the fuel gauge to work properly.  Now that the tank is painted you should consider adding a dedicated ground wire between the tank and the chassis.
