    We had a small section of Gerson frame with the bends in it to take care of a portion of the inner passenger front frame repair, along with a section of plate we had to finish it up.8362177A-9ECC-46CA-8F70-D39B4D0267D899324B8E-795D-4C01-ABDC-C229E815B35D

    Knocked out one of the front driver side inner frame repairs at the end of the day. One more repair to go, then the new front center section can go in. 41C1211E-003E-4361-8A61-23A30401EC976F1F1CBF-B08C-4AB7-826F-074C9F342F71

    We’ve hit a stopping point on this one for the time being.

    One more frame repair needs to be done around the pass side inner/outer frame rail at the torsion housing.

    Pat gave it some love for a few days…  The new owners name is Cory Yeo..  I think he is going to leave it here for a bit and get more metal welded in…

    Props to Corey for stepping up and saving this one! Just keep sending your paychecks to KCW and you’ll have a cool single cab someday! Everybody is dissing on the rust but ya’all forget its a 57 single cab! a 57!!

    With the availability of new bodies now you won’t see them this cheap again.

    Funny… now that corey’s moved forward on it, and the obvious love for this truck that exists…  doesn’t seem like such a dumb build anymore… 😎
