Re: Lets see some before and after pics

Some really cool transformations. Here's mine several months after I bought it. I had already replaced rusty sheet metal, added a set of wheels and tires, lowered it a little, and done a lot of cleaning. The second pic is the way it is now.

Then that grille broke, thanks to a tree or something out in the woods, then I put a '74 grille on it. And here it sits now...

i thought i was the only one that had a 70s front clip and power mirrors

Yes. I've seen quite a few here. My wife thought I was crazy for cutting a perfectly good truck in two.

Re: Lets see some before and after pics

Did you cut the bed and frame or just frame and replace bed?

Just the frame, I bought a SWB parts truck that had a cab fire. I used the bed, exhaust, and driveshaft, then sold all the pieces including my long bed and made $. Funny story, I have owned this truck for years and one day a neighbor stopped by and said " Man you just keep going through these old trucks. What is this like 4 or 5 now?" He was talking about the same truck, it just kept changing. LOL
