Mank from Bullet the Blue Sky and Tanks for the Huecos (chain).  Some angle iron, bent-spinner SMCs, Sawed off pitons-hangers, Chain with worn links (TFTH) replaced with Mussy Hooks...  2 bolts were bad and need to be chopped, one was pounded in.  Many of the bolts that were good got new hangers (Break down still needs some stainless SMC (mostly bent-spinners) replaced but I tightened down the lowest bolt on that line). More to come.
