so customer "Chad" brought this to me late last week .. he's from Calgary .

I didnt get a shot of the truck with the bed on .. but believe you me , it was bad .

I got the box off .

and started to clean up the frame ..

second day , I got on cleaning again .. inside and out
I used a small air chistle , and wire brush .. and "chipped" off all the rust ..
worked very well ..

as the truck sat overnight , ran into a small problem .. as usual , the brake lines were rusted , and just needed that little "hose action" to reviel a pin hole .. you can see it soaked the frame ..

so in order to fix this .. I had to remove the fuel tank ..
and of course with that .. the fuel line breaks .. as well as almost every bolt !!

so now with the fuel tank removed .. you can clearly see the problem ..

.
couple of more things ..
I'm replacing the shackles , as they were siezed solid , and removal was difficult .

actually , it's not that bad ... frame is solid , just surface rust ..

I imagine ANY 80'S vehicle has the same rust issues .. NO ? or are chev's and fords immune ?

ok .. so a little more today ..
I ordered a new fuel pump bracket , and even a diff vent :)

continued working on getting the inside clean .. I "reduced" the vaccuum hose , so I could vac up the some of the pieces that just didnt want to come out ..

http://i76.photobucket.com/albums/j2/bj_bumperboy/chads%20truck/HPIM0926.jpg

I was able to pull some of the larger chunks out .. and then "suck" up the smaller debris .
http://i76.photobucket.com/albums/j2/bj_bumperboy/chads%20truck/HPIM0927.jpg

and one more air blast , and wash , and it'll be good to go ...

also ..

finished the repair on the brake line ..

and also got the new shackles and bushings on .. LOTS of neversieze , and ..WOW the suspension actually works like it should now .. :)

and also had to drill and tap some broken bolts .. did them on the frame , and also the fuel filler tube ..

http://i76.photobucket.com/albums/j2/bj_bumperboy/chads%20truck/HPIM0922.jpg

all washed and cleaned up .. I started the POR-15 treatment
