Re: Build: I've never done bodywork...but I can change if I have to! (bagged '67 SWB

Ripped out the old diff and swing arms, pressed in new bushings (good job for our 20 ton press!) and mocked up my new weld drag lites with 29x15.5 skins. If I can't get traction with over 30 inch of surface contact between the two tires, something is severely wrong. not sure how close I can get to the frame rails, as my pan hard bar is gonna be shifting the frame a little, hopefully it will move less then an inch, I will try make the longest one I can for minimal deflection.
I have to get started on narrowing a ford 9 to stuff in there, I am shooting for my overall width from outside to outside of tires to be 72 inch wide. I sure hope this will allow me to keep the tires off the tub sides, and just rest on top when aired out..

Going to be a sweet truck, keep it up.... great progress. When you get to the body work sanding painting, good respirators are very important.

Thanks, it's trying sometimes.

well got some more progress done, but nothing too wild and crazy, did some more blasting, did a whole lot of sanding the paint off the cab, basically just cleaning all the old layers of paint off getting it ready for etching primer.
but there is gonna be a bit of a break now... goin to Hawaii for a few weeks, so no more updates for a while!!

Re: Build: I've never done bodywork...but I can change if I have to! (bagged '67 SWB

wow am I tired tonight! worked 14 hours straight on the truck today , sanded off about 10lbs of old paint. figured I'd be all rested up from the vacation, but turns out it's harder to get motivated when off the project for a few weeks, today was the first day I worked on it since back, and I got home last wednesday!
I slaped the 9 inch Moser diff together, but now I am worrried I went too narrow, we'll see tomorrow when I fit it between the frame rails with tires on it.

got most of the cab sanded, still need to blast the bottom floor.

Trucks coming along nicely and I see you have been doing some interior decorating in the shop. Nice additions to the walls.

This is a great looking project! I remember when you were searching for an accomplished body man. I guess that didn't turn out too well. I'm glad to see you're tackling the job yourself. I love the tanacity. Keep up the hard work.

Oh, I love the new shop too.

how to respond to that one, so many good one liner's come to mind, haha! but yea it does look good so far, I know the 9 inch is heavy duty and a good way to go, but I still feel dirty putting a ford part into my chevy. (that ones for you Corey! haha)



Well, didn't do anything yet today except go to a farm auction. but I did manage to find this little gem at a local Princess Auto store, had to give her a new home in my shop! with it's 4 cylinders and dual stages, she is gonna make some really pissed off air when I connect my new sandblaster to it!

Thanks, but I gotta pull up the socks, I been a bit lazy since getting back from holidays, haven't gotten much done last few weeks!
shop sheet metal can be ordered all over the place, got it from a local farm supply store. it's a 2x6 stick frame construction on concrete slab, cut all the sheet metal with 1 pair of tin snips.. wouldn't do that again unless you are training your hands for some sort of death grip skill!

funny thing is the compressor was awesome, but my buried cable to the shop would not support a 10hp motor, so i had to take it back and get a smaller compressor, with a 5hp motor.. still good, just not as good for sandblasting..
good thing princess auto has a good return policy!

You should be very proud of your work on the truck, the new compressor will help for a long time to come. The shop is wonderful, you may need to install an exhaust fan for painting or it may be there I just didn't see 1. Keep up the good work and pics.

Time to update the Thread a little, may have lost a few during the summer, Just so much going on I had to wait till winter before I could start on the truck again, I think that will be a growing theme.
Finally finished my shop, and built another one for farm equipment during the summer...Also had our son, sure takes up a lot of time and energy, so now the goal is to finish it before he is One!

I told him if he didn't finish eating his meal, I'd make him drive a Ford when he's older... I then got the stare down, I don't think he found it amusing that I would even joke about that.

Took forever to align the diff to weld in the perches just perfect, just didnt want to make any major errors, so I had to measure 14 times and weld once. I am certain that custom ford 9 weighs twice what the stock C-10 was.

just a little test fit, also made some spacers out if 1x4 tubing, so the rear would bottom out in the C-notch

test fit the doors and front fenders, some how I got a '68 and up cab+rad mounts kit, so I am not sure if the cab mounts are thicker or not? I know the rad support mounts don't fit, but if I change the rad support mounts to '67, I am not sure if I have to change the cab mounts as well?

Looking good! I understand how hard it is to find time to work on these things. I just had another kid as well Do you still need that cab section or did you manage to get yours fixed?
