So today is my 50th birthday and I can think of no better way of celebrating it than to start some real work on the Hot Rod.  At least more work than just pulling things out of boxes and looking at them.

I stopped by the store and picked up a few more supplies and got started on the painting.  I have chosen to paint the suspension and the frame blue for now.  I may end up having it all sand blasted off and powder coated later but for now it will be rattle can blue.

I got going with the upper and lower control arms and the bushing sleeves.  Tomorrow I will knock the surface rust off the frame and prep and prime it.
