Finally got a chance to start on my truck project. Its a 81 that i have had now for a few years. Figured there is no better way to start a project then to strip it to bare metal so here is the progress up in till now.

"THE BEFORE"



Built my own rotissory (available for rent
)

TAKING IT ALL APART










Check out the awsome electrical work by the P.O.
Seeing this made me really happy that i desided to gut the thing.


Yes that is house hold electrical wire in that birds nest of crap...


Mounted on my rotissery


When you call your friends up and say that you have beer pizza and ice cream cake and forget to tell them that there is work involved they will all show up


Any one up for some marshmellows?

making progress on scraping the undercoating and seam sealer out...



Even the girls were getting involved


almost done....

after this i cut out all the brackets for the gas tank and shocks... to make room for some stuff that is to come later in the post... Sorry forgot to take pics..
Off to the medial blaster.

Dont have time to post up more pics right now but ill try to add the once of the truck after the blasting tonight.

Cool, but why did you cut off the radiator support? You planning on going back to a square headlight setup?

Not sure if you can see it but who ever installed the round light front end had it about 1/2" low.. so it didn't match up with anything... its in great shape so i will reuse it but have to make some modifications first

please tell me you're keeping the pimp-ass roll pan.

The sides of the roll pan were glued in with silicone
So i had to take it off to do it right, but yes the roll pan will go back on but with a few changes to make it fit better.
