From Scott :

I wanted to send an update to my Gallery page, showing some progress since I first got it. A lot has changed since the first picture.

Throughout the past three years, the truck began to become a large overall project to take on. A lot of the work was done out of my garage, but alas alot at our high school auto shop . The truck kept us from being kept in the class room, allowing us to work out in the shop. That was a terrific class to be a part of. Everyone you see in this picture gave some contribution into the restoration of the Bomber.

Here we are pulling the engine and having it rebuilt with the transmission. The picture on the right is how it looks today.

Ah, yes ... notice the new paint job. During the winter break of 2007, I decided it was time for a face lift. It got a fresh coat of Bright Red. It's not the best paint job, but it will do for now.

This summer I plan on rebuilding the whole dog house, rockers, and cab corners along with a friend. That means, yet again, another paint job. I will keep the same red and white two-tone color as you see.

It's been a fun experience. Currently, the truck sits in storage till this summer when I return home to Lowell, Indiana, while I study at Purdue University.

Thanks for keeping up a terrific site.

Thanks,

Scott

From Scott :

           In February of this year, I had my Grandpa's old pick up truck [ pix ] towed to my house. I remember, ever since I was a young kid, I would go visit my Grandma and go look in the garage to see that old beauty waiting for me to take her home one day.

           Well, it finally happened. I had to wait to get my licence and a job to help the project along. When I got the truck, it was in need of great repair and attention inside and out. The body is fairly rusty, but not too bad since it was garaged the whole time it sat for 18 years. The powerblock is the original 292 straight six with 3 speed on the column.

           The last 10 months I have brought her back to life with lots of money and hard labor. The truck had 48,284 miles. Since then, I have put on another 2500 miles with the rebuild -- thanks to the help of a neighbor. The last five months, the "RedBomber" (its name) has been my daily driver. I have completely restored the interior, engine compartment, and suspension. I still have a ways to go.

           At 16 years old, it's hard to find a paying job so I can cover the parts and gas -- 10 miles to the gallon.

           The next part of the project is a new radiator and pulling the transmission and rear main seal. They leak a bottle a week. I can't wait for everything to stop breaking and leaking. There is always something to fix or replace.
