Re: Daverods 52

Found two front floor pans on ebay for 50 plus 25 for shipping. LMC had them for 69 each. Plus, 20 each for oversize, plus shipping. I think it was a score. Couple cab corners and some toe kicks and I'll be welding.

Awesome shop.
I was thinking of a lean-to also. Just for the dirty body work. I had a temporary one up, but the wind blew it apart.

Re: Daverods 52

Cleaned up the truck. No real surprises. Very solid. One bad cab corner, front bed panel is rusted along the bottom. Front floor panels are shot as well as 1/2 the toe kicks. Bed is shot as well as the metal strips. Couple rusted stake pockets. Other than that is all good.

Re: Daverods 52

Now that's some interesting bodywork! But hey... it's gets you where it needs to be!... little filler and you're done!

Wouldn't worry about the rust stuff... sounds all pretty standard. I redid my box sides and front as well... couple sheets of 16 gauge cold rolled and a 20' length of 1 5/8" - 16ga tubing... a little cutting, a couple bends and you're done... and not for the $1000 bux all the big shops want for them! I've only got a light skim coat of filler over the welded area and you'd never know, except no stake pocket holes...

Cheers!
Ted.

I don't think that would have worked either with 75 mph winds. After loosing it twice, I gave up until I build a permute one.

I think the PO just mounted it there. Maybe they both wanted a ash tray.

Re: Daverods 52

Talk about storage issues, You are storing that poor thing on the walls. Hope you are not pulling the cab and bed up to the rafters to store them.

I need one of those heaters in my garage. I have a propane salamander heater but the fumes are terrible after a few minutes

Re: Daverods 52

That's how you put 10lbs of $hit in a 5lb bag. I got plenty of room. I bet I could get two more trucks in there. New floors/ cab corner in the mail. Maybe I better go move that fender. Now the S10?

They had a good one at Cosco last time I was there. I think Lowes even has a few. 80-100,000 btu vented to the outside. Hotdwag one is the best. Heat my house and my garage highest bill was 135. Just do it Bubba. You can thank me later. http://www.modine.com/v2portal/page/...ontent_013.htm

Re: Daverods 52

I now wish I ran a gas line to the shop also. It is gas isn't it? I was thinking of a wood burning stove to heat the shop.

Re: Daverods 52

Already did that. What a PITA. I'm 90 ft from the house, and more to the gas supply. I think that wood burning stove will work out and be cheaper to run. But it's going to get warm soon. Maybe by next year.

I got the Campbell with the 80 gallon tank. It made a big difference with all my air tools. Especially the air grinders.

Re: Daverods 52

sweet. I'm gonna go with the 60. If I ever need more air my dad has a 30gal tank sitting at the house. I just dont use it enough to need the bigger motor and tank.

I can get this one for just under 400. And I'm about to get the lowes tax refund card so the extra 10% they give me is basicly going to pay for it!

It's only a single stage. I would get the 80. Bigger is better. You'll use it.
