Re: Out of the Ditch = The Rebuild Begins ('72 GMC)

Thanks for the bump 'rat. I'm in "frame paint jail" right now. It's taking a little longer than I expected, but have been assured it's coming along.

I'll hopefully have an update soon with a pic of a new frame sitting in my driveway.

This weekend, going to tear the carb off and go through it to get it ready for storage. Drain the gas tank, and remove it since I'm going to put a tank under the bed..
