1992 F150 Restoration

Hi everyone I'm new here. I'm starting a build thread here. I am working on restoring my dads 1992 F150 4x4 Extended cab short bed. He bought the truck brand new in 1992 in Davenport Iowa and its time to bring it back to life. We just pulled the engine and transmission today. Engine doesn't hold Oil pressure anymore 269,000 miles on odometer. It had an issue with the throttle getting stuck and it overrevved the engine. After I get this forum figured out ill post some pictures of what has been done so far. I need to find a rust free box for it as the one on it is in poor condition

Well we got the bed off yesterday it was in worse shape then it looked. Not much structure left so the hunt for a good bed begins. Picture of truck with no bed is up now. Next plans are cab removal and frame restoration.

Thanks for the support its a pretty big project. We've made a little more headway on it. I put up a couple more pictures. Hope to have cab off soon but have other work to do today. Rust rust rust.

Update most of the interior is out of the cab and everything is undone from the frame it is ready to be lifted off of the truck. Just need to get a few guys rounded up so we can lift it up. Found a pretty bad rust hole in the floorpan. Will post pictures soon.

Cab is off today we ended up lifting it off with a big strap and a skidloader. We are towing the frame down to the carwash right now for powerwashing before it gets the acid treatment. Dad gave me a funny look today when he saw his cab on a trailer coming down the road. Put it in the barn for safe keeping until we are ready for it. Posted picture of rolling chassis in my album

I'm not really sure what it is. my friend that is working on this truck with me. His dad owns a body shop and he's getting some stuff from him. Ill let you guys know what its called when I find out. I think its similar to the stuff that is used to clean concrete.

Yeah I believe that was what it was called. Then after that we are going to paint it with some special chassis saver type coating. We got the frame all powerwashed now. It doesn't appear to be in as bad of shape as I was thinking originally. Once the loose rust came off it appears to be solid.
