hey guys got a project happening. restoring a crewcab. it was kind of a basket case to fix but its getting done. thought i had things figured out with a person to help restore but things fell through so now I'm getting it done with my friend jason. blasted cab to bare metal and workin all rust issues. Will have some photo's soon. I have a before photos in my albums. Was doing some mock up of parts. gonna be installing a cobrajet headed 400 ford in this application. zf-42 5 speed tranny with 205 transfercase. 2009 rear leafs and pulled the front leaf out and buildin up a dana 44 with coil spring application, deaver coilsprings aftermarket stuff. should run nice and able to carry a load. will have a gooseneck hitch in bed. gonna build a custom bed. cab got epoxy primered this week. pictures soon, check albums for before photos.
hello was checkin out your rear seat in your photos. My question is how much room do you have between rear seat and back of front seat. Leg room question. your truck is kind of a hybrid also so i understand some of your thoughts on building it your way. cool truck and hopefully mine will be nice soon. work is killing my playtime. its a good problem to have. catch you later and keepin old iron alive one ford at a time.
finished blasting the doors. no worries about heating up the metal and warping. it was -5 degrees when i finished blasting outside this evening. gonna do some body work and smooth out tommorrow. needs some touch ups and hopefully get back on frame by this weekend and cab painted. work is killin my truck time.

It seems awkward, but whenever you "insert a picture" to one of these threads, the forum is looking for the picture somewhere on the web (which is always available) rather than from somewhere on your hard drive (which isn't always available).
Well, I dunno on the sandblasting... Wish I had one today and I had to resort to a wire wheel to clean up a D-44 front end going in my '68 Bronco! Covered head to toe in 35 year old road tar, 90W and rust dust... Looking forward to the progress. Mine's 2600 miles away from me so all I can do is dream about it and collect parts long distance.
things are happening just not as quick as i want. Its lookin good and will work on some photo's for this. just set on the frame yesterday and kinda looks like a truck again. doors are on and finishing up some minor dings and bumps from many years of good service. keepin old iron alive one crewcab ford at a time.
