  1. Well, I got the frame itself is back together and everything has been painted. I just need to bolt it all back together. This year has been very busy and there really hasn’t been any time for the truck. I need to order some rims and tires and I still need to round up parts for the rears like all the brake parts, airbags, shocks. Etc, etc. I’ve been saying this for almost 3 years but it should come together pretty quick. I also put in for a little vacation time in December so hopefully I can get this project moving soon. Thanks for inquiring, how is your project going? Andy
  2. Not my style, but I can respect the effort. Honestly though, at $40k it would seem to be wildly overpriced. I wish him luck. Andy
  3. Maybe Boston Fuel Injection in Charlestown, MA. If you are in New England. Andy
  4. The right guy will come along with the money and resources. It looks like a good restoration project, there appears to be a lot to work with. IMHO, it would be great to see it restored to as delivered condition, but it someone really hated the brown it could look good restored stock with a correct factory sales broucher style paint job.

  5. That’s probably close, I do HVAC for a living but don’t mess around with automotive stuff very much. The couple of R-12 I’ve messed with ran around there. Overcharging is worse than undercharging so best bet to play it safe. I find the trucks more difficult to charge by feel if you can’t get the clutch fan to stay engaged. Andy
  6. I’ve worked union and non-union, it’s the same job. Whatever nets you the best sustainable living and the best work environment is the way to go. The people at that plant are happy, kudos to the management, they must be doing something right. Andy
  7. I’m in New England and I’m in the market for some wheels for a truck I’m working on. I converted the truck to hub piloted rears, it had stud piloted 22.5 wheels on it recently and originally it had 10-22s on 5 hole budds from what I can tell. I want to go back to the tall rubber, but stay tubeless. In keeping the somewhat appearance of originality I’d like to get 8- 5 hole hub piloted 24.5 wheels, preferably painted or powder coated black. Does anyone know a good source? The rims regardless of color seem to be rare on the used market, so if I can get what I want new without spending a bundle, that would be ideal. Any input is appreciated, thanks. Andy
  8. What’s the plan Paul, are you gonna be making some shake down runs soon? If so what day, I will try to get up there. Thanks, Andy
  9. Wow, that is a twin to the parts truck I used. Andy

  11. As long as I’m not working, I will be there. If it’s a Friday, maybe I would even drag my POS up. Andy
