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.
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?
