Building this one for my dad.
Nothing exciting, stayin pretty much stock and will be used to haul the camper on hunting trips.
Started off as a simple repair, bad valve and a leaky rear main.....and then we got carried away.

Here it sits in the snow waiting repairs, then in the shop and the front clip motor and trany come out... Lots more wrong than anticipated, and the rad support and frame mounts were rusted out.
Rebuilt the motor and trans, new flywheel clutch etc
Aquired a doner truck with a better body and started stripping it.

Bought a bumper for it, was supposed to be from a 91 but was for a 92 or newer so bit of cutting and drilling and it fit like a glove.

The front bumper is still on the donor truck, it is straight but needs new paint.
Trade ya for a 12 pak of Pilsner......I don't have any need for a chrome one.

Let me know if your interested and I'll pull it off when I am in Chilliwack next. I have to go take the box off to sell anyway.

A bit of progress....doesn't look like much but took all damn day.
Started working on the doors, ground down the bottoms as there was some minor surface rust did a bit of filling and a coat of primer.
Had to completely rework the drivers door, ground it down removed the dents and finished the body work. Sprayed on a few coats of High solids primer and finished for the evening. Hoping to finish the body work on the passenger door tomorrow and block the drivers......

Well it's been a slow go working and trying to finish this truck. A bit more progress on the body. Finished up the doors epoxy'd the outside and sprayed some colour on the inside.......grrrrrrrrr......ended up being the wrong colour...have to repaint..... Gutted out the interior patched up a few rust holes on the driver side floor, repaired the passenger side rocker as it was bent up from a battle with a rock. Cut out and welded up the passenger cab corner as it was rusty as well. Sprayed the jams the right colour and mounted the drivers door.

I am now buying the truck from my dad as he bought a Dodge diesel and doesn't need two trucks....works for me.
Anyway.....the Ford will soon be sporting a lift (not sure how much yet) and some 35's. The 8274 warn winch will be mounted as soon as I can buy a new end plate for it, and I'll also fab up a set of rock sliders as soon as I wire the new garage for the welder......
I'll post more pics as I make my slow progress......[cheers]
