I know alot of you don't like fenderless, hoodless, pickups but I wanted to post these just the same. It has been mainly me and a student of mine working on it for the last few months. We're both pretty proud of it. We z'ed the frame, build the front suspension (except for the springs of course). This includes the front, middle, and rear spring mounts for the front suspension. We built brass radius rods for it. We also built our own front and rear motor mounts. The pic is of the front motor mount. I took some 2x4 mild steel tubing and cut it at a 45 on both ends. Capped it and made the top bracket and welded it on there. Also, we took the old torque tube and turned them down on the lathe and I hole sawed the tubing. We then took them and put them in the holes and I TIG welded them up and polished it out. I'll post some pics of the rear motor mounts later. They are cool, too. I made some radiator supports out of 1/2 stainless round stock (threaded them for 1/2-13 UNC). I even had to machine a new distributor shaft as the other was too short. The engine runs and sounds good, thanks to Jason (my student). We have to build a flatbed for it. I have a keg for the gas tank. We're going to a junkyard to get a driveshaft this week. I'm building a grill out of stainless round bar and some brazing rods. LOL. There is plenty more of stuff we built that I forgot. Oh yeah, the cab is channeled 4" and the engine is raised 4.25". It will be painted black and gold when it is finished. We hope to have it running and driving by homecoming so we can drive it in the parade. We probably won't get the bodywork completed by them, but we'll probably do that during Christmas break.
