Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

ya, you guys been going threw some nasty stuff. I'm soooo glad our fire season is finally over, seems to have been a bad yr everywhere...
have'nt had much free time lately. with winter fast approaching, the push is on at work to get some big projects cleaned up before the snow fly's (actually the other day we got a couple inches, but it did'nt hang around....) as well as getting my place set for the winter
got the motor done, LQ4

and most of the susp. just have to twist up some coils and make shocks. the coil buckets and shock mounts are already on the axle ready to go. lots of dicking around on this frame, stretched a couple times, cross members added and deleted, re-did the engine mounts, deleted the 2wd stuff and added bed cross members

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

It's looking great (even if it's too new). They pulled that lymphnode. The same week I was evacuated fo 6 days due to the Atlas fire. While evacuated I was diagnosed as stage 2 nonhodgkins lymphoma. I just finished 4 days of Chemo. More chemo to come this week.and more after that. I can't work until at least April. Rant over truck is looking great...keep up the good work...

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

The prognosis is good. I'm only stage 2 this time. I have already done six chemo treatments of at least six hours each. The last one of this series is this Tuesday. Then I start the second series thanksgiving week. It's helping already my jaw is no longer square. The swelling is gone. Woohoo. The interior and chasssis is looking great. I like the new purchase looking forward to see what you do with it. I would suggest you don't bring any of those attention distracting accessories home(like in the pics). It tends to make wives angry for some reason...lol

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

well that sounds promising Dale
chemo is a real killer on the body. wife's second sister is on the tail end of some bad stuff. they did a bunch of chemo last yr, really dragged her down, they ended up removing one of her breasts wife has 4 sisters, 3 of them including my wife have had to go threw this crap
