    Builds Colonel Mustard Revival

    The rust is bad…. really really bad…. Well, my home remodel project is done for a few weeks, I still have a kitchen backsplash to do, but it can wait. Metal work is more fun than housework. I did do some work on the frame, but that can wait until another update. For now, I was sick of only...

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    2” Heavy/heavy Ome lift. Without anything heavy in the truck. Is more like 3”. I figure when I add the winch bumper and tire carrier it will settle out a bit. Yep, 315’s, stock gears. Drives fine. I don’t off road much so ok so far.

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Re Just realized I never posted the final result. Here it is from a a few months back. Using a small roller, I rolled in raptor liner a few inches up the door. It hen hosed the whole thing down with fluid film inside and out.

    Need a favor, Can someone with actual sheet metal here (front of rear wheel well arch) post or send a few photos so I can reference it when I re construct it? The other side is not much better. Even better would be with a few measurements. What would be even more amazing is if someone has...

    Yeah… we may just be racing… although with all my rust issues. And a house I still have to remodel. I’m sure you will win. Either way. Super cool to see another body off LS swap going here. Here is where I finished off today. Made a stand for the body that the frame can roll under to save...

    That’s super nice! I have some interestingness with my next post, I will be cutting out 3/4 of the inner c-channel and welding in new metal to make it all work. Also using a pressure washer sand blaster to clean up the frame.

    Just lifted it super high, had a buddy lift the back. Then pushed the picker all the way over to the other side of the garage. Then I wheeled the frame out and put the body on jack stands. At least for now.

    I’ll see if I can pull them this weekend. If I were to re-use it I’d probably rebuild it and hone the cylinders.

    I built a 6.0 for this truck 2 winters back It’s actually. 6.1 now with a sloppy stage 2 cam, went way overboard on the build. Forged pistons and rods, the works. Imagine that right? Also have a nv4500 for the transmission

    Body is off, Motor Transmission, and T case are out, the fun continues. Pretty easy removing the body this way, needed a neighbor to lift up the back end, and then just lifted the body up and over, and off the frame. The only thing that was forgotten was the speedo cable. Today I spent...

    The Body - the spiral continues After taking a close look at the frame, it looks terrible, but salvageable… with that the body must come off, and the frame will need to be sandblasted. This will also make it much easier to solve the rust issues on the body. Body removals have been covered...

    Drip Edge - Rust Never Sleeps With the roof off the drip edges needed to come off next. The roof is spot welded to the drip rail, and the drip rails are spot welded to the body. As you can see from the photos in the roof post, there is a ton of rust. It was barely noticeable from the outside...
