Re: Donz '65 SWB Stepper Budget Build...

That snow covered frame sure makes for a nice picture.
All it does here is rain. Looking at wet frames doesn't do it for me anymore
Even in down time your stuff looks neat.

Re: Donz '65 SWB Stepper Budget Build...

Not much accomplished since our Christmas Snow...

Just thought I'd post these Pics of some of the truck's original documentation, this is the only piece still available, seems the truck was originally purchased by the local school system...

Next step is to see if the school may possibly retain any records...

If you are talking about wheel backspacing, I'm not sure... I think the wheels I have will fit under the stepside fenders but havent had the bed on it since I swapped to these wheels, sorry I can't be of more help just now. BTW I graduated High School just up 55 from you at Braidwood...

Re: Donz '65 SWB Stepper Budget Build...

No luck with the school retaining records, but one of the mechanics drove the truck from 73 to 93 when it was put out to pasture... I will be dropping by the bus garage to talk with him and show him what I have accomplished so far. That is the only update for now, hopefully I will have some progress to report soon. For now just trying to stay dry with all the weekend rain we have forecast... Enjoy guys!

Re: Donz '65 SWB Stepper Budget Build...

My first 1966 Tempest Custom was stolen while we were stationed in Korea, it too had the original owners manual, and the maintenence book with the metal stamper plate.
Those are awesome little tid bits of vehicle history that really add some punch to their value.

Re: Donz '65 SWB Stepper Budget Build...

It's official, truck project is on hold for a couple of months... Moving my business to a new location locally, so all after-hours for the next few weeks or so will be poured into the move and restructuring, gonna be fun! Will check in occasionally nonetheless.

Re: Donz '65 SWB Stepper Budget Build...

Making good progress with the biz move, no downtime, which equals "No Interruption in da cash flow," which equals, happy checkbook...
Took the last 18 years to put everything into old location, and 2 days to move it all. Now we get to rearrange and try to find everything!

Here's a pic of a mirror in my Work Area... Can't wait to get back on the Truck Project...

Nice to see some local 60-66 enthusiasts . I'm down here in Cabot if you ever need a hand. I plan on starting my 64 C20 Build this summer, might find myself in need of some assistance (or ink!)

Re: Donz '65 SWB Stepper Budget Build...

Finally a small update, albeit, still an update...

Due to liquid sunshine today, I was unable to do the frame cleaning I had planned... so I was able to get in the shed and do a little...

Got the Cowl vent seals replaced, and the handles removed in preparation to steal Murph's cowl vent cable opening mod.
Since Murph acknowledged Coulter in his build with his "Coulter Trim," I will aptly name the Cowl Vent Cable Controls the "Murph Controls!" Thanks McMurph for posting the vent cable pulls for me to steal the idea for my build.

Re: Donz '65 SWB Stepper Budget Build...

Not much progress to report... but I did pick up a MIG Welder (Cheap) and have made a place in the Shop for it, waiting on my electrician to come over and wire up the 220 receptacle... For the time being I am re-purposing a derelict table saw for use as a welding table, nice steel top, gutted the internals last night, next step is to blast the surface rust... What's the best way to prep the top after the rust is gone??? Oil, WD40, any input is welcome... Thanks for looking in on my ramblings, enjoy!!!

Re: Donz '65 SWB Stepper Budget Build...

Look on peachtree woodworking. There is a spray product for cast iron tools that keeps them from rusting and doesn't gum up the work you are doing on it.

Franmar Saw Blade Cleaner Pint (16oz) BBBQTWD

http://www.ptreeusa.com/franmar_chemicals.htm

I have a thing of the aerosol that has lasted for years and works great. Unfortunately it's not sold that way any more.
