    Then I pulled the cab off and here's where I am today.

    I basically only work on this on Saturdays and a few hours on Sundays, so it'll be slow going from here on out.

    Got hit with a nasty cold so I've been down for a couple days. Ruined my weekend, but did manage to knock out another bench.

    Thanks

    Nope, don't think it'd be that hard to rig that up though.

    Well no updates, I'm trying to keep myself from getting burnt out and have reached a point where I'm trying to nut/bolt resto this and I can't do that to this truck. Did that on my last project and it took 3 years!

    Did manage to take a couple hours on the bench though.

    Nice project! Based upon how your project has stepped along like a mountain roadway, I'd say you need to join this organization I'm in called Have to Mess With Everything Unanimous, a side branch of Can't Leave Well Enough Alone. ;)

    No real updates, been using my weekends to run around collecting parts.

    Bought this suburban
    [​IMG]

    And here's what I bought the suburban for.
    [​IMG]

    Pulled the engine/trans out. This was a huge pain.
    [​IMG]

    Then I sold off what was left of the suburban.
    [​IMG]


    I also built a ford bench somewhere in between there.

    So now I've got the basic parts to start putting it together, need to do a lot of mock ups, but time to start moving forward now.

    Nice work on the project. I'm glad I ran across this so I could see that a bed/cab can be removed by one person with a cherry picker. I would like to remove the bed and cab on my truck so I can get the frame cleaned and coated, and all that good stuff that needs to be done while there is frame access..
