I know its been a while, so here ya go.

Alright, I know its been a while so I am going to upload some pictures that show my progress.  I have been doing a lot of welding on the bed, trying to finish up all the body work.  Its all welded, not super happy with it but a little filler will help it out.

I have also been doing welding and hammering on the front fender to make it more acceptable.  Its all stripped now and I will have to take some more photos and post them. 

These last few photos are of a motor that I have been on the look out for, for a long time.  It is a 292 inline 6 Chevy motor from a 1965 Chevy truck.  I am really excited about it.  It is going in Project 54'. Yes that's right, I have another project.  I acquired a titled cab that is rough but its a 54' and one of my dream trucks.  It is going on a 89' S10 chassis.

It's Been a Really Long Time!

Things have been really busy lately, I haven't had time to get much done.  Yes I know it has been a while since the last post.  Believe me when I say that the project is still on track.  It is very slow now that I have gone back to school.  So the progress is, I finally got some time to get the tires mounted on the rims last weekend.  I know right, it's a miracle.  Here are some photos of what the rims looked like after paint, and on the truck with a mocked up fender. Enjoy.

So I know Its been a long time.

Anyway, my truck has not changed much at all in the past year and a half.  Since I had surgery and all kinds of health issues. You know I have always thought I was really healthy but I guess not.

I have also been working on getting my driver fixed up and will throw some pics up of that too.
Maybe a little later.

So here is some attempt to get going on it again. I bought this truck this morning. I really wanted it for the doors but it has a radio! I'm pretty excited about it. Not really sure how I am going to be able to get it home but I'll figure that out. I will part out the stuff that I don't need or want. The cab looks pretty solid too. I just need to find a title for it. its been sitting for like 16 years they say. Not sure if that is totally accurate but oh well.

Slow Progress.

So yeah, I suck at updating things. I just have no time lately. I still work on my truck a  little at a time at the expense of other things in my life. 

A few things have changed. I am going ahead and doing the body work on the cab because I figure that my time is free. Body panels are relatively cheap in comparison to other parts.  So if i'm not going to get it going soon then I am going to keep going on something that I can do. So I have floor panels and I have new rockers and I find that I am going to have to get some more small panels after looking a little closer and taking off the old rockers. So here are some photos. they are not much but better than nothing.

Finally Some Real Progress!

So I can't believe its been so long since I have posted.  Well I recently went to the junkyard about a week ago.  I was looking for some parts for my other truck, but I thought I would look at what bed sides they had that I could snag a piece off of because of all the body filler and dent issues that I found on my front drivers side bed. To tell you the truth I have been avoiding the situation all together.  I found a piece that was pretty straight but had a hole for a fuel door. Not the most ideal but seemed that I could work with it.  So 75 bucks later I had a large piece of bed side that I trimmed down this morning.  I then started fitting it to my bedside. And well eventually I got it on there.  I thought it was a great accomplishment for a Saturday.  I ended up just leaving the metal from my bedside and filling in the fuel door with that as you can see in the photos.  Anyway I think it looks pretty good but I know it will still need a little filler.  Honestly I am really impressed with my self for a job I have been avoiding.  Well let me know what you think.

Keeping it going!

So in this last week and a half I put the motor in and also put the cab on.  Gas tank is also in the cab of the truck.  I Got the power steering box in and the steering column is all hooked up. I couldn't have asked for a better fit. I didn't have to adjust anything.  So now I am working on putting on the front end. Although I wonder if it is a little premature.  I still have a little work to do on the drivers front fender.  I also need a new bolt kit for the fenders as I am missing almost all of the the clips from the inner fender because a lot of them had to be cut off to remove them.  So now I have to get some more. I also painted the front lower valance or whatever it is. It is shiny black making the rest of the parts look kinda bad.  Although I don't think I will worry about it.  I will just be happy to get it on the road at this point.  Enjoy the pics.  I like to hear input so please comment. 

P.S.  I also forgot to mention that I have the doors on also. So I will put photos that are more updated soon.

Getting the ball rolling.

So I managed to get a few things done yesterday.  I got the rest of the rear of the chassis together, the shock mounts and the shocks themselves on. So I went ahead and put the bed on the truck. I finished relocating the rear cab mount.  Then I cleaned up the frame where the cab sits and sprayed it black. I kinda wish i would have done this to the whole frame. But its all together and I don't really feel like taking it all down to do that when this is only temporary until I save the money to powder coat and then do the truck done. I just want to drive it! I Just remembered I dimpled the frame so that I could put the power steering on.  I also picked up a set of rims that I think will work well with the truck. They are 18's and I think I am going to machine my own custom center for them. Yeah they are also going to go white.  But it will be a while before I will be getting rubber for them and I need to get other things done before them.  Anyway let me know what you think and enjoy the pictures.
