Re: Dumptruck Dolly

Iíve been getting ready for winter...expecting a few inches of snow tonight. Dollyís dump box is up and her 4x4 suspension is in the garage, ready for me to work on it again. The 1972 C50 dumper is new to me and I put some $$$ into wheels and tires.

Re: Dumptruck Dolly

Did some engine clean up. I am bringing Dolly to the 2nd Annual Jake Forsman Memorial Auto Show and Burnout Contest. More pics to come tomorrow.

Thank you...also hung some mud flaps, painted the box, added radio antenna...pictures to come

...I had to put some of my $$$ stash into wheels and tires on the C50 to make it safe to drive. I have some cool ideas IMO for the big dumper, and will document it at some time.

Re: Dumptruck Dolly

You're growing quite a nice fleet of vehicles. Also, nice trick with the aluminum foil as masking material before paint. Beautiful results, too.

Thank you... yes, it applies pretty quick and holds well. Fast and easy.

Hopefully the fleet will start to combine into one or two real nice trucks. The yellow 72 Chevy is a real drivetrain keeperÖ 402 big block with factory air, disc brakes and tilt column. That one should be fun as well. I do have to get to my short box that is on the rack inside the garage first.

Re: Dumptruck Dolly

Cleaned up Dolly, put on some side boards for the dump box. Check out how nice the floor of the box is.

Re: Dumptruck Dolly

Hereís Dollyís partner. 1972 Chevy C50, 4yd box, 350 sb with camelback heads, 4 speed+2speed rearend. New 22.5Ē one piece wheels with new 10.00 drives and steers...The crooked bumper is because the bottom bolts of the bumper arenít there, a previous owner issue, so Iíll have to press that heavy beast into position and bolt it.

Re: Dumptruck Dolly

I did not make it to the car show...with the temps dropping below freezing, I had to get my heavy equipment in their yard positions for plowing. I donít like running the big stuff when itís real cold because 1. I donít have to...and 2. Things break when cold/hydraulics etc...
