Started this project awhile back but wanted to get something done before I posted it up. I live in Northern California in the foothills above Sacramento. Started on cars when I was 14, it was a 1927 ford T bucket ford, as the years went by I had many cars that I worked on and built, Became a shop teacher in Auto and metals and the rest is history. However I got the 4X4 itch at a later age and been working on a couple of rigs, the one I am focused on now and this idea is not new to Murders is a 40 to Hybrid 45 conversion. Did a little research and came up with a idea and have been working towards this idea along with many that have been successful already here on Mud. Found a 1970 tub knowing that the back half would be cut off and built to my liking, so rust no problem. Sold off some of the parts and was into it for 1/2 of the cost and had fun to boot. So here we go with my story. As you can see this is not a cherry to start with, however I knew what parts I was looking for and this had them. All the rust was in the back part which I was removing. The rockers and floor would be replaced also so basically the front A pillar forward was in great shape. Hauled this piece home and started to work. I will post more in another frame.
