Its official My 68 Build "Midnight"

Well I finally decided to tear the ole girl down and give her a full frame off resto. I started to day by removing the front clip minus the core support for now. I even got the assistance of my wife. I plan to tear it down to the bare frame and rebuild the chassis and paint the chassis with all new brake lines and hardware. then I will start on the cab and body work. I have added some pics of the tear down.

Looking forward to seeing progress! Looks like you had already started on a resto before too.

Re: Its official My 68 Build "Midnight"

Finally got back to work on her. I got some of the interier out now. i went to try to start her up since I haven't unhooked any of the engine stuff yet and the batt is dead so I put it on the charger. While I was waiting on the batt charge I was cleanin up around the truck when I noticed a huge puddle under the cab. Great a fuel leak. Looks like its a small iece of rubber hose but will have to check once it dries out now that the fuel line is unhooked.

Yep, that's my problem. Heck, I got the disassembled bed and front clip in the side yard and still don't have enough room in the garage.

Keep up the good work.
