well into the disassembly I eventually reduced the frame to individual parts after cutting, grinding, and punching out the rivets. I bolted it all back together with 7/16" and 1/2" grade 8 bolts. Name:  chassis1.jpg

Re: 74' GMC Stepside build.

The front horn was bent due to an accident from the previous owner it wasn't a bad band but it threw off the geometry of the frame instead of heating it up with a rosebud I cut the frame bent it back into shape by hand cold and then weld it back together
