Sequencing of events

Please steer me toward a detail oriented thread regarding "after the frame is done? I would enjoy reviewing the any or all threads regarding the suitability of rebuilt '69 axles in todays world, resources for new black and fresh water tanks and more......
Thank you!

Thank you!
You cannot rebuild torsion axles. You don'y have a way of freezing the rubber rods to minus 260 degrees, while they are deformed into a triangle.

You also won't know the characteristics of the rubber rods that must be used.

Usually, a parts stocking dealer can help with the tanks.

Reading reading reading

I'd say your best course of action to start is by reading all the details of the major build threads. They are listed here: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f44/...ons-35399.html

It is important to really see and go through the whole process instead of just skimming it, because it brings to light a lot of little small details that if overlooked could create major issues.

Good luck!
