tear down started

finally got the 78 in the garage yestarday after some choice words,been sitting near a month and no interest in starting.but the brother in law and I finally got it fired up and the snow of it an inside.
got a hour or so in on it last night with the tear down,some trim and lights of,long road ahead though I can see.
I have to get the approns and rad support out here soon to get them powder coated and ready for reassembly.should be a fun filled winter,sure wish my garage was bigger ahaha but then don't we all.

yes I will get some picture as soon as I get some work done hahaha.I scored a good source of heat yestarday,so that will speed the process up.
can't get much work done when the beer is freezing faster then you can work and drink.my old heater was just about done,I got a 165000 btu blast heater that makes nice heat.

I had the heater going last night for half an hour or so and it was t-shirt working conditions,just too busy these last few days to get much done.

once my current garage is my shop, hopefully by next fall, i'll be putting heat in there and it'll be home to a project of some kind. i remember working on my '83 without heat in the garage. was nice because hitting your fingers didn't hurt until a couple hours later.

what are your plans with this truck Fred?

I spent many years working in an old barn with no door and no heat,sure made things move slowly.
its going to be kind of a show truck sherm,but I will drive it a fair bit in the summer months,just something nice with decent power to cruise in.

a friend of a friend works in a shop where they do it,he's allowed to do his own stuff so I just send him the pieces and get them back all done.I did manage to get a little work done durring the holidays,all the trim and lights are off,front bumper and grill,after gettin the 15 bolts and 6 screws out of the grill I realized you need the bumper off too,wish I had of known that before I battled with the three bolts behind it.

No global warming here, the rest of the week is in the mid to low -20`s and looks like we`re in for another cold winter.
