I don't need no stinkin A frame!!!!!

OK, the rain didn't stop me today, just made things a little interesting. Never got an A frame, and no one was available to help, so me an the trusty modified cherry picker got the job done. To cut weight on the cherry picker I pulled the doors, bench seat, and the fuel tank. Seemed to help. Couple 50lb bags of sand on the back of the picker also helped.





Out with the old and in with the new!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





Do what ya gotta do to get the job done!

Thanks for the comments. I've all but decided I will be lifting the cab back off for a couple hours this weekend. I just have to get some of the old crud,rust, and years of dirt off the firewall. I'll strip it down the best I can and hit it with some primer. I plan to have the entire cab soda blasted later, so it doesn't have to be perfect, just enough to keep me from kringing when I look at it.

Jim, drop me a line anytime. You planning a frame off or a frame swap?
