Re: Jesses' 48 PU

Affordable on CL did mine. The blast and primer was good for the price. I think he posted my frame to his site.

Re: Jesses' 48 PU

Re: Jesses' 48 PU

Jesse,

The clip is looking good and I agree with Russell Ashley on the blasting thing. Been there done that and never again.lol Its just too much of a headache and worth paying someone else to do it.

Re: Jesses' 48 PU

thanks Bam, slowly but surely i will get there. I will start working on the rear end this weekend. Im boxing in the rear of the chassis and getting crafty and creative with the Ford Explorer leaf springs that I scored on Craigslist for 60.00 (complete with all hardware and shock mount plates).
once im done with that its off to having it sandblasted (after the advise received) ill pay the 175.00. Dont need anymore sand, heck still cleaning sand from my crack from my tour in IRAQ. (LOL)
Already ordered the primer/chassis black kit from Eastwood.

Re: Jesses' 48 PU

Thanks Rollinrooster, yea, ive decided to pay to have it done, so It should be done by this time next month.
Meanwhile, im a bit excited, i just scored these wheels and tires for 300.00 from a fellow hotrodder named Tony, he posted them on craigslist was nice enough to drop 50.00 bucks off the asking price, he also has a friend who will help me shorten my rear end.

Here is what i got done this weekend. I bought the leaf springs from a Ford Explorer, they were one of the few vehicles that have a similar setup, in which the hangers are under the chassis. I boxed in the frame and bolted the hangers, i welded 1inch pipe in between the frame and the 1/4 inch metal plate for support.

Re: Jesses' 48 PU

Hello Hot Rod World, ive been kinda laid back lately and not done much to my chassis. I walked by it, talked to it, and laid a beer can on it, but havent worked on it.
But what I did do, was take advantage of having yesterday off from work and drive down to Laredo to see my parents, and while I was here, snapped a couple of pics of the progress on the body. I swear, I have a kick ass dad, he is working on my truck, no amount of money will ever be enough to pay him.
So here is a couple of pics....
