Re: 57 Truck build

No problem. That’s what the form is for, helping people. I like what you did with your frame. I installed did my front end almost two years ago but never fully welded in. My friend sold his shop and I had to put it together and bring it home. Then I started on the sheet metal work. So now I’m trying to get it finished and painted so I gain get done with my build. Nice work on your chassis!

Re: 57 Truck build

Thanks, doing it this way I didn’t have to take it back apart to clean and paint then reassemble. Allows me to keep building layer after layer .

I would have done it that way too if I didnít have to bring it home. This time it will be a full chassis with engine in before I put the cab back on. I will even do a start up of the 4.8.
