Today I finished prepping all the sheet metal w my mixture for the surface rust. Sprayed undercoating inside both doors; white lithium on window tracks and other moving parts; drained radiator because it had that old brown water smell in it. Once I removed bottom hose antifreeze Did come out. I’m guessing it May have been low and the seller perhaps topped it w water. Either way, I didn’t bother flushing system but just drained the dirty stuff out and put in new. Checked antifreeze later in the day and it was still up top And nice and green.
Tomorrow my mail comes.....rubber sleeve for floor hand brake and floor shifter, boot for floor starter, metal cover for master cylinder instead of the cheap stripped plastic one, then the rubber cover for floor above master cylinder, couple of rubber door stops.
Still need to purchase the seal for around the hood vent as water(rain) gets in there and floods the inside floor. Once this and windshield seal are taken care of I’ll POR15 the inside floor and put back the padded floor along w the one pice rubber floor mat.
This is for my 52 1 ton.

I can also be a smart ****, but it’s all good, so don’t take offense.

Got some final pit filling done on the inner grille bars and got them final painted today. Used a rattle can of Rustoleum Canvas White which I found was a pretty decent match for Waldorf White.

Got the original interior paint matched up on the 54-3100. Cost a fortune in small 1/2 pint cans but it looks good. No runs, no dips and a homerun. More work this coming week. Doc


Currently making 1954 3100 better than new and Genetics

Reconfigured my rotisserie back into an engine stand and got the engine mounted on it. I extended the length of the engine stand a bit from the way it came, used the rear rollers at 30 inches width on the front and the extended casters on the rotating end (38 inches wide). Looks pretty stable. These stovebolt sixes are pretty long and I didn't want to use one of those cheesy 3 wheel stands, opting for a cheesy 4 wheel stand that I modified.

Getting into the 'Rusto-Mods' bed resurrection. New rear support.
Covered in rust dust and metal filings, but better that any day at work.

Praetor,

WOW. Very impressive. Running a stronger than stock frame???, 'cause THAT looks like it will make pretzels out of a factory one.

Hi Chip O,
Good point! I planned on Boxing the frame and beefing up the crossmembers when I add boost. I’m running street tires with minimal traction currently but should I box it now with 450hp/465tq?
