10-11-2006 11:54 PM Putting Back The Pieces
Just been trying to get everything back together so that it looks like a truck spent almost two full days sanding down the old paint and trying to make the body lines match up. Got a lot of work left an old Chevy's is about as thick as a American beer can up here in Canada. Going to take the box and sandblast it tomorrow seems to be a bit more steel here than the rest, hopefully it'll go good.

The truck was previously hot rodded in the fifties and not much car was taken back then. I had to cut the body along the back where it was previously welded so that the lines would match up. Just tacked it with the mig I'll tig it all later after I redo the other side.

Started mounting the body on the frame, got the fire wall together first and started straightening out the rest to try to make it look like a truck again

I just had my frame welded up and getting ready for the build.Ordered a rear coil over kit from Speedway and a front axle kit from the Old Car Center in langley BC. Got a 3 and a half kick in the front and a Seven and a half keep in the rear. Would like to have a rolling chassis by Christmas.
