It's a sad sad day. One of the cooler trucks you will see out the on the trails and out and about in BC is no more. I was speachless when I got to Bruces house and unlike others I can't imagine what he must be thinking. I know we had a few talks about the longterm future of this truck but none of those talks ended like this. As horrific as it looks there is a lot still usable and with a bit of time and a lot of help from us Bruce can be out and about again soon.[cheers]

What horrible news Bruce :eek: I know you put alot of time and effort in the tart. You could see that anti collision yellow for miles especially up at Goldbridge on the lake bed  Well on to your next build which I'm sure will be bigger and better :D
11-27-2013, 03:00 PM
It sure was a cool truck and fun to wheel with. Glad your keepin your spirits up and not giving up! Theres plenty there to rebuild and its starts with a pressure washer to get all that fiberglass fiber off! If you need help with the rewire for its next incarnation just say so I'll be there in any capacity that I can afford.

12-03-2013, 09:54 PM
I don't mean this in a bad way, but is it even worthwhile to tear much of that down? It almost looks easier just to start fresh.
But in a cool way, if it gets reincarnated, I'm very impressed at the dedication! Rock on.
12-03-2013, 10:41 PM
It will be a fresh start sort of the top stuff is gone so I could see what's salvageable other than the motor and front coil overs
The rest of the susp and drivetrain is fine
the frame is going to get cut off at the link mounts
And will be retubed to make it sit lower with the cruiser body
The frame section under the cab isn't burnt were all the link mounts are
And leaving it together will save a bunch of time in the build
And it really was the easiest and quickest way to take it apart
It was striped down to the frame in a few hours
and much better than having to lay under that black sooty mess pulling the tranny and suspension
12-04-2013, 11:35 AM
I still can't believe it buddy
12-04-2013, 10:46 PM
And got the fresh start tonight got to love this site
for how buddies come together to help others out
wont say right now what but its going to be cool
12-05-2013, 06:38 AM
Can't wait soooooo Git R' Dun!!
12-05-2013, 01:36 PM
