This past Sat. we pulled the motor and the cab,, I have he cab resting on Boat dollys and I have to build a work dolly so I can move the cab around and get the metal work underway. The chassis I am thinking I can blast in its place I have a few cross members to move and a Gas tank to hang in the chassis,, let me know if anyone has any suggestions


I have a 55 second gen!,, work in progress

A good cab dolly is a section of otherwise scrap frame from similar model truck and some scaffold wheels removable from pieces of pipe welded to each corner.
The frame already has the cab mounts in the right place.
wheels can be removed when transporting cab on dolly on a trailer.
For working on bottom of cab remove from dolly and lay cab on something soft on the back side.

I have seen 4 x 4s ( in a square) used that sit close to where the cab mounts on the fram. He then had wheels under it. Just a thought.
