Wood is the easy part. I have a never ending supply of pallets at work, and lots af fallen trees in my buddies back yard.

The cab corners, rockers and rear crossmember are the easy too, I just hope I remember to take lots of pics when i get to the roof and drip rails.

Now that we have our wood stove working we got back to the project.

My wife started sanding the hood. It looks like this was the original hood as it was red originally just like the interior.



While I worked on replacing the rear cab corners, my buddie started welding the new door posts together locking the cab together.




We installed the new custom made crossmember, and welded it into place.



We cut a patch from the 53 back wall I had, and fit it into place.







Things are moving along as planned for the most part. I need to try and find some sections of drip rail as what i salvaged from the 53 cab i had will not be long enough.

Anyone have a source for new drip rail?

Anyone know what vehicles have the same drip rail I can steal from?

I am sure I can make my own, but if i can cut one off a donor it would make things a little easier.

If you are shaving the rails on the front and just want them over the doors look at mid 70's Chevy pickup. They screw on.

Well we got some progress done this weekend.

welded in the other cab corner, and rear patch panel.







Then moved inside to start the rear floor.












Rebuilt the fuel tank drain riser.






And then started working on getting the longer drive shaft lengthened.





Now that the drive shaft is ready to be built, we need to start figuring out the carrier bearing hanger. Id love to use the hanger in the picture below, the one that sits just in front of the rear cab mount, and under the cab. It already has the correct holes to hang the carrier bearing on, but I dont have another one. The long bed chassis didnt have this crossmember and the one from the donor chassis needs to stay where it is.

anyone have a spare?

If I can get them off in one piece ( per side ) I will let you know... but I am making very slow progress, so if you get some elsewhere, let me know

way cool,

Looks like alot of work, have fun...
anyone else want one I saw a post in Craigs list (LA, CA) yesterday for a stalled project, the cabs are together, in primer looks good but the rear fenders for dually look bad, he should have widened the bed and left the fenders alone.
If I can find the link again I will post it.

We got the new crossmember from james G. phillips (classifieds) installed this today, as well as the shorted/lengthened drive shaft.




I now have to find some door parts. I need the guts for the latches, the door opener pulls, window regulators from a 56, and some out side door latches for mock up. The doors i got with the donor cab were stripped clean, no parts what so ever.

And, where the hell do you find a new pad/shoe for the hand brake?

Made some more progress last weekend.

Made a new crossmember for the rear cab floor.





Welding in the new 18g floor.





Attached the front rocker panel to the rear rocker panel with another rocker panel patch panel i had laying around from a previous repair.





We used a cab corner patch panel and parts from a rear wall panel to create the lower cab post between the doors.





and covered up the olde inner cab corners with some recyled steel from the roof.




I think this truck makes me a darksider.

PROGRESS!!!

I wasnt happy with the way the first middle patch lined up, so I cut up the original cab back wall and made a new patch.
