It's time for a new update, now that something's getting done.

I took the day off work yesterday to get something done on the truck. Working two hours a night doesn't get you anywhere. Though I'm stuck at work writing this on a saturday now.

Anyway, I got the frame cleaned up and undercoated,

& the cloth seat in for the old vinyl.

The bumper and lower splash apron have been removed from the parts truck, and the apron is painted in the right colour with chrome re-attached. Both are ready to go on, as soon as I line up the front fender mounting holes to stock location. The p.o. rear-ended someone plenty hard, and this stuff is all messed up, but nothing I can't straighten up enough for winter.

The 383 is painted and in, though the propane hasn't been installed yet, so I haven't fired it up.

The cab corners are bought and ready to be welded in, as soon as the inners are patched up. The steel is cut for the patch as well. Should be done soon.

And finally, I painted the front of the box, so when it goes together and gets painted, you won't be able to tell it's not original.

It was nice to have a day where you can see productivity. It's getting really close now. Starting to look like something.

I got the front end together, aside from the bumper and hood. I have to paint the hood yet, and I can't put the bumper back on until I repair the dents in the passenger fender. Klause also finished the welding on the cab corners, inner corners, and part of the rocker pannel. The propane will be hooked up on monday, and monday night I have to do all of the work on the cab, (it's going to be a long night).

OR,

How's your truck coming along?? We haven't had any word on it for a month now! Do you have any new pics for us to drool over?

Oh, Dreamer. I've got one or two. wink.gif

I actually just finished painting last night. All the trim is half on, and I hope to be driving it tomorrow. So new pics. Ok, here are the latest. smile.gif

So you can see how ugly the door was.

I did my best on this side, but a new fender will be needed eventually. I shaved the emblems though. I like it clean. wink.gif

And some pictures from Thursday. smile.gif I've got the whole thing done now though. I'll try and get some pictures up tomorrow. It's flat ocean blue, and I did that all with spray cans. It's a winter paint job, so don't worry. It'll get done right come spring. smile.gif Turns out a gallon of paint would have been cheaper anyway.

Keep in mind, there's some dust about, so no, that's not a spot that I missed.

No problem. I just didn't think anyone was interested, so I stopped updating. tongue.gif

I won't show the front end, because I coudn't get the bumper on last night. She needs to be adjusted first. But everything else is ready to roll. If I had gotten that bumper on I'd be driving it today. sad.gif
