    Bed floor, cargo floor, front floor…..Sounds like a big green metal order. Probably more than you paid for the truck. 🙂

    Mission accomplished! Goal met! It’s a roller!20190208_172824[1]

    OK well not really, but it’s got wheels underneath it!

    I’m not ready for a project like this right now, coming off the DDWT. More tinkering and little projects right now would fit the upcoming spring activities better. And my farm truck needs some maintenance before it goes back to work here20190208_170744[1]

    So the fire truck red 58 is up on the slab. The 60 pos is up fs on samba, if anyone here wants it I’ll make you a deal and deliver it to KCW if you want. It will make a real nice truck when it’s done, too nice for the stuff I do with them 🙂  If it doesn’t sell I’ll revisit it this fall.

    All the beautiful snow has kept me busy, not much shop time. The 58 sc is getting it’s time on the lift. This little hack:20190211_143800

    The spring plate bolts got loose and broken back in the day, so someone got all farmer on it.20190211_175914

    Tried to drill the bolts, no go. I think they might have been welded on. Off with the RGB, axle tube, spring plate… motor out. Kind of a lot of work to fix something that’s been working for 30 or 40 years!

    WTF? I’m all about farmer hacks…but sometimes it seems easier to fix things the correct way.

    The 58 single has been in the spotlight for the last couple weeks. Got the farmer hack repaired with a new rgb box and springplate, did it the hard way with the trans in, and cleaned all the gunk off the underside in the rear end area, axle boots, gear oil… and a puddle under it in the morning. had to redo the axle tube for some reason. But it holds oil now.

    A general cleanup and look inside the treasure chest revealed some rust going on down there, the screw holes and some small spots in the bed had been letting water get in and hang out with all the dirt, so broke out the welder

    20190308_134257[1]My bed is all tight now and will keep the water out but the gas tank was loose and rotted thru on 1 side so about a square foot of floor and a new gas tank mount went in the treasure chest area, fun fun fun!

    Not bad in there besides the spot under the gas tank. I’ve etched the surface rust best I can and am heading for a little rust bullet and some epoxy primer. Confined Space area!

    Rocker was tired so a new one was ordered from Gerson. Of course the inner looked good from underneath but was thin and slightly pinholed so that came out too, which meant the in front of rear wheel piece had to come off, which was thin anyway, and C and D post repairs at the TT door.20190310_172815[1]

    20190314_113239[1]

    The official contour template for post fabrication 🙂

    Some really ugly scrapes on the TT door post with lots of really hard grey bondo holding it together, smells like jb weld when I sand it. So that all got fixed better.

    20190317_150249[1]

    All this fucking work to get my beater truck ready for chores, and it hardly looks any different than before.
