--- Well, at least the rear end is back on the ground. This sucker has been balanced on top of jackstands and house jacks on stacks of lumber with all her wheels off for the past couple of months and making me really nervous. The new Dana80HD axle and springs are now hung and have the new 19.5 rims and tires mounted. Nice to be back on solid ground again. At least in the rear. The front is prepped and waiting for a disk brake conversion that has been in the works for about three years. Hopefully, it will be completed and ready to mount this millennium.
A few other projects are moving along...albeit slowly.
New axle, springs, rims, tires.
White looking painted areas are the exterior body panels treated in the HyTech ceramic bead coating. The inner panels will get it too.
My new 250 amp alternater and the new A/C compressor have arrived. Sorting out the mounting of everything so it will all (hopefully) fit under that pointy nosed hood.
And, just in case you know of anyone looking for original factory issue 1942 to early 1947 20" x 5" Chevy truck rims...I have a bunch. The three new looking tires in the front are taking their place so the originals have to go...cheap.
