Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

got the cab and bed back this morning from the blaster...got it all in epoxy. ...turned out purty good...the bed had to go back to remove the lizard skin from the bottom.....kudos to lizardskin for a product that sticks...they said they worked on it 6hrs to get it off....what a shame that it had the wrong primer under it....

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

this seems like a rerun but I got the lizardskin back on the bed underside...this time with the correct epoxy primer....also did the inside of the cab floor...don't mind the dust..I've been sanding...

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

The cab and bed look good! Ash tray filled out nice too. You are making quick progress Greg.

Dust....this has been working pretty good for me.

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

haha...I don't know how good that would work inside the cab Doug. ....the dust blows off the lizard fairly easily but I had moved it back in the shop and didn't want to create a dust storm in my buddies shop....he's a little ocd and I'm living on the edge with my mess....but he's a cool little dude...he's ok with it for now....
I've got most of it ready for high build now I've just got to wait on some rainless days to spray it on...

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

I knew before when I fixed the cab corner that there was a spot next to it on the floorpan that had rusted thru...i couldn't get to it to fix it before but on the rotisserie it will be a simple fix...

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

I'm a little tired of the rain myself... trying to finish up the siding job on my house... but then I always tell myself... we could be in a drought... again... 2016 was so bad I think I mowed my yard once from June to September. It literally never rained.

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

yeah it seems like one extreme or the other...it either rains all the time or its dry and hot...
looks like your down to the short rows on the siding job....I bet that's fun in this 90+heat with all the humidity...

Amazingly clean floor pan! We haven’t had rain in 2 or 3 weeks and the crops are thirsty. Lawn is turning brown.

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

yeah Doug....that floorpan underside looks almost as good as new....what was odd was the floorboard inside was pitted very badly...the lizardskin on the inside covered most of the pitting.....
I also was thinking of trying to save the headliner since it was original but after looking it over closely it was beyond trying to save .....so I pulled it out....now im trying to decide what to do for a headliner...I was considering fabric to match the seat but my buddy says I need to spray it with lizardskin and then paint it.....so I gotta decide what to do....im afraid the painted lizard for a headliner will look to much like a blown ceiling in a house

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

You've got a great build going here Greg! And building it for your dad is an amazing gesture. Sucks about the primer fiasco, but looks like that's all behind now and a lot of forward progress since. I'll be following this one.

PS. I appreciate all the advise I've gotten from you on the general forum for 73-87. A lot of us doing a lot of this for the first time and it sure helps to have folks to bounce our questions off of.

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

ran into a issue while mocking up my power steering...the IH frame is a good bit wider than the chevy frame was and if I put the power steering box outside the frame the tire will hit the steering linkage when turning to the right...its been suggested that I try crossover steering...anybody have any input on this?....maybe a different idea....the IH box mounted inside the frame rail

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

that's interesting Doug ....but all I see is for 2wds...and pricey
im waiting on a reply from ORD...maybe a 70s caddy steering box will work...it mounts inside the frame rail...if itll work that may be the remedy....maybe

Strong work, looking grand! You might have to fab the linkage that you need to stay with the 4 X 4. Just thinking outside the box?

Keep on keepin on
