It doesn't cost anything to pay attention.

No miles and cab looks nice!  Home run- assuming decent price.   Assuming it's a double frame how does that look?

Price is was reasonable...No rust on cab..surface rust on chassis and a small amount between the frame rails on the right side...nothing a sledgehammer and chassis saver primer won't fix!

No, I'll be hauling either dump trailer or tipper/live floors with this truck.

Very nice project I like it. Are you going to keep that beautiful East Coast theme Green Cab/Hood with a Red Frame and Wheels?

No, I'm going to go all red, with black roof, sun visor, air cleaner, fuel tank straps, axle caps, wheel wedges and lug nuts...those are the colors I grew up with.

20191213_081334.thumb.jpg.ae766fab55ae12bdd6fc26b18bc1375a.jpgJust got her back from a frame sandblast and paint  You can see the color difference in the wheels vs. the frame.   The color is a 2019 Chevrolet color called "Red Hot".  Shout out to Hawk Frame and Axle in Rochester, NY for their great work!

Time for an update...after the frame sandblast and paint, It's time for new brakes, wheels, rims, tires, front springs and shocks...plus a new cab floor.  Here are few pics as we start:20200127_165442.thumb.jpg.652f258025a8251ac4870693b4857a44.jpg20200127_165452.thumb.jpg.874b79bc3edfa10642b356e9dc46f857.jpg20200127_165500.thumb.jpg.28857f1c5a57d2e7a645755b57d8d609.jpg

Got the new floor and brake and accelerator pedals replaced.  Also, while we had the floor out, we replaced the cab air bags and shocks,  as well as the rear motor mounts.  Making progress!

Can't do them on the site. If you're using Smart phone turn the phone 90 degrees and the should come out correct.  Paul

A few more updates...got her in the shop and started the teardown...replacing the rear spring pads and center bushings and 2 torque rods....new king pins up front.  Plus a few pics of me cutting off the very large number of rusted bolts!  Truck left today for a frame sand blast and paint.
