Thought I would start a thread on my progress of my 1929 chevy truck restoration. As a rookie in restoration, I'm still confident that I can get this done, especially with all the help I have received so far from you guys "The Pro's!"
I worked in a body shop back in the mid 70's. Don't have much mechanical experience though.
This was my father-in-laws first truck, so we want to keep this truck as part of my wifes heritage.
Just finally got started on it a month ago after a lot of research. it's time to put in a lot of elbow grease.
I got the body disassembled and in my shop to spend the winter working on the body.
Snow has begun to fall up here in the mountains and I am elk hunting until the 12th so there is a pause on the project for this week.
I'd rather be working on my truck.
Heres a picture of my start on the cab, bringing it down to bare metal. Have a good start on it.
Can't wait to get it all clean and shiny.

For what its worth I have always liked the 29. First year for the 6 cyl I think and I just like the style. Thank for starting this thread and I'm sure I will not be the only one following along with you.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

Almost all the cars were looking good in 1929, the Chevys were no exception. They had very clean strong lines that year.

Had to move the frame out of the way before the snow gets deep.
I've got some new wheels coming in a few weeks but couldn't wait for them to get here to relocate the frame.
If I had one of my old cars with a metal bumper, I could have moved it in a few minutes.
However, everything today is made out of plastic. Necessity is the mother of envention.
I believe it was Archimedes that said "Give me a lever big enough, and I can move the world" Lol
Took most of the day, but I relocated it about 25' by putting 2x6's under the wheels and used a landscaping timber as a lever to move it a few inches at a time.
Nothing a Bolter won't do to achieve his goal.

Lookin good. Would appear from the background that this isn't your only hobby.

I like how the really old trucks can be broken down into bite-sized chunks. You buying the wood frame pieces or going to try to make them?

Building the wood cab frame is a piece of cake for me. Thats my specialty is wood work. Forth generation. Can't wait to get all of the cab and doors done so I can get to work on the wood frame.
Yes, I am a sculpture, I build 6th scale cityscapes with animatronics.
