Hey Team, I have been on and off the forums and now that I'm into the nitty gritty on my frame off restoration I figured its time I introduce myself. I bought my 1949 GMC 1/2 ton from a farmer not too far away just over 2 years ago and I hope to on the road this summer. I may also start a build thread to layout what I've done so far and get some pointers coming up as I am keen to get some modern conveniences like remote power locks installed.
So far the major list completed is as follows: - strip truck bare and sandblast panels and cab being kept - beeline and prime to keep off rust all panels - strip and clean frame, box front and rear and paint with cat black bulldozer paint after rust treatment - weld in and mount engine and trans mission mounts for LS - mount 4 link rear with pan hard bar and Mustang ii IFS - clean up cab interior, fab and weld up 2012 Lincoln MKT bench seat brackets for mount
I'm sure there is more but that's the major list. I look forward to all of your help and input!
