Ok, I think i've decided I'm just going to take it down to the frame, and sand that down, give it a few coats of POR17, replace what i find broken, pull the tranny/t-case and sandblazt the both and paint them. (when i painted them in my install i left some dirt on so it's coming off) i REALLY wish i had a sandblaster that i could use for the frame, but the beadblaster i have access to is a contained one. anyway for all the wires from the body to the frame i think i'll just clip thme and get some plugs, to speed the rebuild process up. any ideas/tips? i might even have the body painted while it's off.
