Chassis should be painted next week. Pictures to follow. Still have to rebuild the rear axle and install a steeper ring and pinion.

flash, you must have quite a few parts for your truck if you are running out of room.

More pictures, haven't done much due to the weather recently. We got the headers back from being coated today. I stopped by their house after picking up the headers, and John's last post prompted me to take a few pictures of their living room...

Not much new to share, the weather has been a real hindrance for a few weeks now. I took these last weekend, hadn't gotten around to posting them. Frame is pretty much broken down and on a make shift rotisserie. (two engine stands) Have to finish cleaning up the bottom side and get it in primer. Also, if you look close there are some extra brackets. We built a set of cal trac style bars to control the wheel hop. There is still some finish welding to be done, and add a few gussets to some brackets.





With some good weather and a little luck, I'll have more pictures to post in about a week.

Painted the frame Monday, and got the one-piece door glass worked out this week. We weren't able to completely fill the void of the vent window with glass. The way the upper door hinge swings into the door itself prevents that. A sheet metal piece will have to be fabricated to complete the conversion. Here are a few more pictures for now...
