got some more time in on the duster, most of the metal work is done. got the underside coated in chassie black from eastwood. only have the hood left. fenders are in primer ( no pics.) started tearing down the rear end to get it ready for paint. previous owner ( not ted) did a hack job moving the leaf spring perches. as soon as I loosen the u bolts they fell off the housing.
here's a few pics.
