Hahaha, now I am getting pressed for pics!! Really did not get anything significant done this weekend except cleaning the shop!! Of course we have to do that occasionally. I did weld some square tubes to the body dolly to keep the tub from sliding off, safety first!

Thank you sir! I have to weld a small piece on the driver side and put some more tacks on it before it's done. Hope to get that done this weekend!

I guess I was posting while you wrote this! There was a little progress made on the top of the windshield frame, just not anything noteworthy really. As for the cowl I am considering a couple of different approaches, one I can do with my limited skill and tools the other will have to be a paid job.

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

Since it was a large step I took a few extra pics.
This is the first pic of it layed out almost at zero pressure.

This is a problem, it's not low enough!!! The heads on the bolts that hold in the trailing arm crossmember make the body and frame "teeter" front to back so this will have to be addressed.

Looks great!
What size (diameter) wheel/tire combo will you be running when it's finished?
This will dictate how low it goes.

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

Weld the bottom of that crossmember then you won't have the bolt heads to deal with. Honestly how often do you plan to remove it? But if you do decide to remove it you only have a few welds to cut.

I was thinking 22X9 front and 24X12 back. Then we have to really get technical and ask what tire size. After deleting the bolt heads I will have a better idea of what I am really dealing with.

I was planning on welding it, just really surprised that it made it sit that far off the ground with the body on. I do not have the body mounts in yet so we'll see how that effects it. Next is body mounts and measurements for all the stuff that will be hidden.

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

Body mounts will probably raise it 3/4" or so.

I figure there is a happy medium between layin the frame, wheel size, and pinch weld removal. I will be Zen when these three things come together. The mounts are not really gonna raise it that much because I stuffed in the old mounts in. So I may be looking at an 1/8th to a 1/4 difference from the pics. But I see you slept at a Best Western last night!!

One of the rubber mounts is ripped in two, so I have to allow for that. Have you already got your mounting kit?

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

Yeah body drop kit is in, still have to buy the cushions. I'm missing a few items but Travis is working on it. Having flooring put in the house this week so no truck work will happen during my week off at home, but that's ok since the wife is happy.

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

I am steadily making progress each week! The pics do not show much progress, but it actually was a lot of progress. Only had a day and a half to get this all done so I was happy. These pics are all that I took, but I did spray both sides of the tub with rattle can primer. I hope to have an announcement about the project soon.....so stay tuned!!!
Paint is gone off the dash.

Bare metal shows all, found a patch at the front of the tub on both sides and the quarter panel on the driver side will need to be replaced. There was a gallon of bondo on that quarter panel!!!
