There's a good chance of that, it was just a thought. Still have looooots of things to do on the truck before I consider it.

Sorry for the lack of updates here, had some laptop issues computer_punch

I haven't really done anything to the truck, still needing to remove the cab and engine...

But I did snag a couple original 3/4-1 ton hubcaps off ebay for a really good price, they're in great condition too!

I realized that I completely forgot to post this...


The black cab I plan on using (which I posted earlier), someone already put in new outer cab corners and steps on it, though they need a little touching up with the welder. The cab does have some rust on it, but its nothing major, until I started looking over the back of it...
https://beta-static.photobucket.com...idth=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

Somebody had welded a plate over a rust spot and then caked bondo over that along with another rust spot next to the plate. I honestly almost didn't notice it at first except for a little rough spot where the rust was eating through the bondo.

So I proceeded to hack it out. What made it a bit difficult was this happened to be right where the rear cab mounting bracket is, which also had some rust. Well I got that bracket out in one piece and welded and fixed it up to reuse it.
https://beta-static.photobucket.com...idth=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

Then I cut out the same piece from the old cab to fill in the spot. First time drilling spot welds went so-so, considering I ended up drilling right through the piece...
https://beta-static.photobucket.com...idth=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

Weld it up!
https://beta-static.photobucket.com...idth=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

And hit it with some spray can primer!

Not bad for my first attempt at major rust repair! nanner


This cab will need some floor work, but I'll mess with that later...

Possum, please look into another alternative for hosting photos. Many of our members cannot see Photobucket postings. Thanks

So I decided test something. I know Internet Explorer does not support Photobucket, though when I click the links here while on Internet Explorer the pictures show without any issue.

Is there anyone viewing this thread who can't get the pictures to show?

Are you referring to the PB photos in your original post or did you try something else? I can view your originals which is unusual. I usually can’t see PB pictures without jumping through a bunch of hoops.

Yes I'm referring to the PB photos in the original post. I have it where the link takes you straight to the picture without taking you to my PB Library, maybe thats why you're able to view it smile

Yes, I also can see your pictures. I am using Google Chrome. I had been using Explorer and updated it a few times, but on my last update I must have screwed up and this computer went back to the original version. Some people don't like Chrome because it tracks where you have been.

With Chrome I can at least see your pictures and I want to tell you, with your first attempt at rust repair, it looks great!

I just bought a 1956 3800. Maybe I should have bought a new computer instead.... no I bought another truck.

Thanks Wayne! I would've gotten the truck too grin


And I have to confess something I've been holding in since January. Me and my dad borrowed my uncle's tractor to move some hay, his tractor has a loader on it where ours does not, so we used it to lift the cab and engine off the frame and set it aside. Come to find out, both frame rails are bent...

Like I said, I've been reluctant to post this for the past 3 months because I was pondering on what to do. I plan on swinging by a local body shop that can do frame straightening and see what they can do for me.
I'm still gathering parts and doing other work on the truck, but once I get over this hurdle it should be downhill from there. *knocks on wood*
