    Hello, reading you NLE chassis thread and wanted to know if you have made a decision on a chassis? I am researching a build for a daily driver for my son and have some concerns about the gas tank location on the Big 10 chassis. Please let me know if you had a solution. Thank you. Mike

    Thanks Chuck.
    I searched but failed to use the "advanced" option and had no idea what to search for other than your name :-)
    Really appreciate you pointing me in the right direction - that should hopefully save me a bunch of knuckle busting and exuberant language

    Hi Dan, glad you found something useful in all that reading! In the future try using the advanced search function on here. To access click on the search tab in the center of the blue bar near the top of each page. Select advanced search in the drop down menu. Now you can do searches on specific keyword(s), user name, time period, specific forum etc.
    Meanwhile try here:
    You are never bothering me by asking for help, I can be reached directly by email: hotrodder(at)

    Well I graduated from college and my Dad gave me the title to my old truck. Life was still to crazy so the truck has remained parked since high school for nearly 35 years.

    Now, my youngest son (Blake) @ 11 years old want to rebuild it. So we are off to the races. Just ordered cab corners to repair some rust & a new bed from Dan Carpenters.

    Posted some pictures in my photo gallery and I'm hoping this is how/where I start our build page

    35 years ago (at the age of 13) I bought a wrecked 1954 Ford F100 with no engine or transmission for $50, put some rollers on it and towed it home. I worked on it day & night. Sourced an original 239 V8 and a 3 speed (three on the tree) tranny, it still had the original 4.11 rearend. I bought a new 12v wiring harness and set out on my restoration project. I had the engine rebuilt by a local shop and brought it home and started my build. In a short time...probably 12 months of hard labor I had it running and driving it up and down the dirt roads. Well, funds were tight, girls became really interesting, and high school was ON! I drove the truck through high school and then college came. At that time I wanted something different in life, so I moved to Southern California. I had Dad sell it when I needed money for college - got $1,000 for it....when I visited over the holidays, there sat my old truck in the same spot.
