01-12-2012 06:29 AM Hot Rod plow truck.
Well, it ain't pretty (yet), but I'm ready to plow! My scrap-yard salvaged Meyers plow is mounted, there's a full tank of gas in the (brand new) tank, the 454 purrs like an angry lion, and I've got several hundred pounds of ballast in the back of the box. If it doesn't snow enough to use it, I'll be sort of dissapointed now! Now that this silliness is (almost) done, it's back to work on the Diamond T. Come spring, there's a new hood setting in the corner, a set of stainless dually wheel covers, and a couple gallons of appliance white paint to go on the '76. It's been a fun project.

12-17-2011 08:15 PM Diamond T update, and the other big old truck project too.
Been awhile since I've updated my journal, so here's the latest. Got the bumpers on the Diamond T, and the bed floor and inner panels fitted. Now that's done, I can pull the floor and varnish it, and do the final assembly on that. Then, glass, driveshaft, glass, carpet and headliner. Whew, the end is in sight.

The '76 is done enough to drive, and I've used it to haul wood. Cool. It'll get painted next spring, provided it fits thru my garage doors...

11-10-2011 07:12 PM Hot Rod Hauler project.
Been working on the Jimmy "Big Dually" truck. I should be working on the Diamond T, but I made a little progress on it today as well, and besides, I've got all winter to finish it up. It'll be too pretty to throw heavy stuff in anyway, so I NEED a heavy duty pickup anyway, right? The Jimmy is a '76, one ton Dually, 454, Turbo 400, 4.56's, and (ready for this?) 17,000 actuall miles. It's pretty cool, now that it's old enough to be interesting, and I'm excited about both projects. Click on the link below for more, and follow the Great White Whale Dually project too!

10-21-2011 06:42 AM Did I NEED another project?
The answer is NO, but in reality I've had this project for years, and had, untill now, ignored it. Since I just sold my 2000 Silverado pickup, I'm without a truck, and miss having one. I've got trailers to move, junk to haul, and while the Diamond T is almost ready, it's going to be too pretty to haul scrap iron to the metal recyler. Enter the '76 GMC "Big Dually"! Here are a couple of pics of the project as it is now, for more on how I turned this 35 foot long Monster Truck/Hillbilly RV into a cool one ton hauler, just click on the link to my blog.
