Rear bumper looks good, only some cleaning and use rust converter. On the weekend will get 3 coats of black epoxy paint. Front bumper is toast and will have to find out, what I will do with it.

On Friday winch base and hotch receiver bracket arrived from laser. Looks good to me, I need to change a bit drawings, had bad calculations for the corners. A little cutting and welding done the job.
For the hitch I need to buy a 2" square tubiing and the hitch should be done. Finished reciecer tubing from scrap of 2".

I would be interested in seeing your drawings as well.

If you are going to make them public maybe we can get it where anyone can make changes/improvements, send the file to a local shop to have it cut/welded etc.

This is something, what I do not want to do it. I had to pay quite a lot of money for the drawings of basic things. So I bought software to make it by my own. Anyone can do it. Sorry.
And I do not want to sell it also.
Here are the pictures.

No worries man! I just figured it could save some redundant work/cost for others. Never hurts to ask eh :)

Wow, that is pretty tough, you know.

I used to use Autocad - for decades
I used Dussault Draftsight for the last 10 years and paid my yearly dues.

Never minded helping someone out with DXF drawings - FREE.
You may have your reasons - I have mine...

You are being a selfish bummer.

I know you have been friendly and generous on here previously, but ARE being a butt about this.

Did you read, what I wrote :D
I think I was clear, what I will do with drawings. If someone from members will need it, I will send it to him. BUT No public postings. My English is not perfect.
And pls SixSix use different language, I am not use to it or I hoped I will not find it in this forum.
Pls also show me, in this forum, were are public dfx drawings. Maybe I could not find any, as I am new here.

Sixsix my $.02 is give him the benefit of the doubt. English is not his primary language and as a guy who lived in a foreign country and tried to understand car terminology in another language - I will tell you it's not easy and there were many, many times where things were misunderstood in both directions.

Yesterday I have got leaf springs. They should be from the CHevy Blazer S10. The measurements should be OK. It is diffidcult to get some thing out here, as the namings of the cars are sometimes meesed up.
I need to press out bushing and ordered new, as the bolts are rusted and stuck. Had to cut those...
Bushings are different on either sides
RB - 117
RB - 231
there are some numbers on the stright leaf, I will need to check, what they really are.
