Rook is on a distinguished road

After 6 months of measuring, studying, planning, and drawing, parts are finally rolling in about everyday. Since my last post, I have been working on cleaning up the rockwells and putting fresh paint down to stop them rusting. I also got the brakes put together.

Here's a sneak peak at what to expect on the axles...

I ran into a huge hiccup that cost me several days of work on the axles when I got to the the spindle nut. I knew they were 3", but I didn't know they are octagon... together it's a rare combination that required ordering a special tool online. Yes, I could have used a hammer and chisel to knock them loose, but that's not how I roll unless it's an emergency or I'm broke on the trail and can't get the right tool. Oh well.... I'll have more pictures later this week.
