Re: 1970 C30 Car hauler Buildish thread.

Unfortunately No real progress has been made on the truck. I've been busy redoing the bead roller. The forward and reverse switch broke a few years ago and I have been wanting to finish it for a while now, That and I needed to make a table for it, it keeps leaving scratch marks when I make a turn.

I made a table out of leftover scraps.

I made some stand off to mount the table

I started tearing it down, I built it 9 or 10 years ago when I only had a cheap stick welder and just started to learn to weld, I warped it really bad and had to put it in a press to fix it.

Ready for paint. I was going to paint it the same color of the truck but I ended up finding some left over paint I used on the engine in a rat rod I had build a few years ago.

Re: 1970 C30 Car hauler Buildish thread.

Wow! You have a lot of time in that bead roller and it is sweet! I really like your garden area too. My wife wants to do another garden this year. We had an area tilled and I'm glad we didn't plant anything yet. It keeps dipping below freezing here still. Keep up the great work!

Thanks, yea the bead roller has gone through several iterations over the years, but I also just got to the point to where I could use it with each I never made it nice. I always intended to but it never happened until now. I'm hoping to get started on the garden before my sugary, but I looks like I may end up getting a late start this year. I'm hoping this week will have been the last freeze we get. It got down below freezing two days this week here as well.

I finally finished the bead roller it only took me 9 years.

Thanks! Unfortunately this will probably be the last update for a while as i'm getting ready to have replacement hip surgery in a few hours.

Not much progress has been made,

I cut another hole in the cab, It goes from my switch panel to the box that the air compressors sit in. I will be wiring up a six way relay box that will be going inside of the box it will control the air compressors, the roof rack lights, rear light bar, the tie down bed lights, Maybe an air horn or something?

Jarrod good luck with your hip surgery. Where did you get your wheels? Also are you running a steel inside dual?
