The Start

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well, it’s another hairbrained idea, but this is a start, a chassis from a mid ‘70’s Chevy, full sized 1/2 ton 4x4 PU, long bed, NP203, Turbo 350, Dana 44 front, 12 bolt rear both with 6 lugs.

I started by removing all the brake lines, fuel line, axles, springs, and mounts. Then I went to drilling out the rivets of the body mounts and didn’t stop untill all the rivets were gone and the frame was in pieces. I used a 7” sander and wire cup to clean all the rust and stuff off it and prep it for paint.
