    Sorry to hear that, I hope the best for you and your dad. I will try to keep you up to date with my progress. I've still got a few things on the checklist it's all just kind of tedious little things. Bu t it should reliably road worthy, I was happy with the drive ability before I started doing metal work, with the exception of clutch and power steering. So I'll probably drive it while I finish the metal work and just keep it in a phosphate finish till I can afford a decent paint job, or brave enough to do it myself.best of luck down there in Tucson .

    Hey Roy,
    If your still interested in meeting up, I'm almost at a point where I can start getting my truck moving again. Just let me know and maybe we can put something together this summer.

    Sure. You think they can be fully restored with chrome?

    The pivot point is... not pivoting. I think I need two pivots.

    Roy, I reversed the eyes on my main leaf (you can do that yourself if you have good original main leafs). You will have to either notch the forward spring hanger or rotate it for clearance with the reversed eye. I rotated mine 90 degrees and moved it up as high as I could on the frame rail.

    I think the S10 rear would be too narrow, but it depends.
    What you want to use will depend on wheel size and rear suspension setup. I am running leaf springs on the outside of the frame like the original F1 design, so I am using a 1970-1981 camaro / firebird rear. Another rear which is the same width would be a 1968-72 chevelle rear. Original brackets have to be removed and new suspension brackets welded on for either one.
    If you are running a 4 link or super wide tires then you may want to mock up the tires and see what you need as far as width, wheel mounting surface to wheel mounting surface.

    Yeah, im just south of elk grove, galt area. My truck not quite there yet but ill try and update profile gallery when possible. Lots of little loose ends to tie up. Mostly just still in acquisition phase and fit check then rework the bed and body, then blast the frame. Then paint/reassembly.
