More progress on the frame replacement. Old frame is out. Now it's time for removing the rearend and front suspension stuff.

I saw a couple of bad spots on the frame but had no idea that the area between the inner rocker panel and frame was so rotted. You really can't see up between those 2 panels because it's only about 3/4" wide.

Glad I went and got a new frame.

I do have a question though. What's the easiest way to remove the front and back springs if there is no weight on the frame???
