Re: Lets get started

Looks like you got some work ahead of you! Is that a 60-66 I see in the background?

Re: Lets get started

Think I would use blocks (wood not cement) on that driveway rather than jack stands unless it is actually flat concrete. I've seen stands dig into asphalt too often and they don't work at all on dirt, gravel or clay.

Work safe, we want to see build threads not memorial threads.

Yes I do and it is a 62. Too many projects not enough time.

Re: Lets get started

Look at all of those glorious, rusty, dirty, beautiful parts.

If I could go back and do it again, I would found a truck with everything, intact or in boxes. Searching junk yards/eBay/CL is so much more fun than building...

Most of the body parts are still good. Most of the interior is gone

Re: Lets get started

Dang that S10 route is a lot of extra work when you consider finding/buying/hauling/storing/disassembling and disposing of that whole extra vehicle. You've gotta unbuild two trucks to build one truck. Then ya gotta make body mounts, bed mounts, running board mounts, tunnel the floor, etc etc. Good argument for a Mustang II build. At least when I did an S10 frame swap I bought an already stripped chassis; that saved me lots of work and junk around the house aggravating neighbors - and wife.
