    So before I put the 1/4 back on I plan on spraying rust bullet on all the areas that get covered. Any advice would be appreciated

    I like your K-Frame stand. Did you have plans or did you draw it up yourself? I plan on making the same thing so any plans would be great. Looks like you have the job well in hand:)

      I'm assuming that you kept the original outer wheel well housing.
      If so, how was the fitment of the new quarter to the wheel housing?
