I received the plates in the mail. $120 for 12'' plates. Sucks. Straightened the frame out alittle bit, tack welded the plates in, and started laying beads. Ordered the 32 ford cross member from speedway and found some nice box tubing at the steel yard for rear braces.

Dissection of the 74 year old cadaver begins.
The frame is in exceptional shape except for the rear drivers side rail. A 10" section had cancer. Previous owner welded a plate over it with a half inch weld to attempt to cover it up.What is worse? A random 1/8" plate over a rust spot, or just the rust spot? (It was orgasmic grinding it off). I cut the section out and welded in a new piece.Smoothed it out the best i could.

Next I ground every rivet of the cross members and frame rails.
Started to fill in the holes with steel washers.

Ordered the partial rear boxing plates from Progressive Auto in Ohio. My thought is that I can save some cash by just getting the half length plates and making my own for the front. The rear has alot more arches and bends, the front is straight. I dont have alot of the tools required to do this.

I got a 4 1/2" band saw from a friend for 40 bones. Just had to get a new blade. Hopefully it will make life alot easier.

Now I await the plates to come in the mail....

She embodied the original front axle and steering set up. The engine and transmission gone. The original rear axle also gone. A failed replacement of a 10 bolt was hacked out of a GM vehicle with partial frame rails attached. Someone attempted to unite both frame rails together, but it was just a clobbered up weld mess.

Steering box, front axle/suspension, and rear axle to the scrap yard hell.

Cab and bed removed and set aside. Full focus on the frame.
