My shipment of 6 more cans of Zero-Rust arrived yesterday and since the weather is supposed to get cold in a couple of days, I got some more painting done. Just have five more pieces to do tomorrow!
10 cross pieces 6″ 2.5″x2.5″
For the casters: 6″ 2×2 and 2 6″ 2.5×2.5
For attaching the car to the jig (various lengths):
2 @ 27″, 2 @ 23″, 2 @ 19″, 2 @ 16″, and 2 @ 13″
These are all that remain to be painted for the Jig:

Went out and bought a plum bob and crayons from Harbor Freight. I wanted to get a sample measurement of a couple of key mounting points referenced in my manual. I was 7/8″ off and believe it is because my body is not yet completely level. Before starting on the floor pan this winter, I need to level the body as much as possible and record as many key measurements as possible for reference when re-assembly.
Been busy prepping and painting the body jig. First, I sanded off the weld-thru primer that was left over, then cleaned the metal with Eastwood Metal Wash, then used Prep Step and finally painted with 2 coats of Zero-Rust.
Here are the two 11′ pieces of 2×2:
Here are the T pieces of 18″ 2×2 welded to 6″ 2.5×2.5 pieces:
Here are the 2 6′ pieces of 2×2
I still have more pieces to clean and prep for painting, but needed to order more Zero-Rust and will need to wait for that to arrive to finish painting the parts of the Jig.
Still trying to find time to clean and paint the Jig before Winter hits! Been busy with some other projects and family activities. Hope to find some time this next weekend to prep and paint the Jig before moving on to the body work.
