Glad your enjoying your updates… 😎
I’m going to work more on the cab today…. I see more dissecting that needs done.. and a little jig work to get things right where I want them.
The rear is mounted down solid and nice!!! I have the torsion housing all bolted and mocked up, nice gap to weld and fill on the end casting welds, penetration will be had without question. 😎 I like using the table to do this modification. I feel like shit is lined up better and less likely to move around while doing that big ol weld. 😎
Front needs picked up one more time.. but it’s real close.
Fun fact,,, very most forward bumper bolts, front and rear, are the same location, all years split bus… 😎 😎
The harder I work, the better I feel, sorta 😎John JonesModeratorApril 20, 2021 at 6:50 amPost count: 10420

If this is going back to stock configuration, the whole thread would be a troll of epic proportions.ryans65ParticipantApril 20, 2021 at 8:42 amPost count: 165BBWBParticipantApril 20, 2021 at 10:27 amPost count: 1237
Where is this project really going? Give us the ‘short’ of it! 🙂
I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.VwfoolParticipantApril 20, 2021 at 10:52 amPost count: 714
It’s staying a short truck.
My plan is to use it for delivering Christmas trees and other trees I am growing . I have several hundred trees I have started growing over the last 2-3 years. Once I get a greenhouse built I plan to use this to sell fruits and vegetables at local farmers markets as well.
This will be the most bad ass lowered mini farm truck. 😂tlambertParticipantApril 20, 2021 at 11:55 amPost count: 530
Must be some really short trees.

JJ needed s couple of adaptor bungs to bolt the cab to the frame table jig. Spun then up on the lathe.
Slides into the the beam plate on the first step, into the jig beam on the second, through rod will hold it together.
We will build it if it comes.Audrey JonesModeratorApril 20, 2021 at 6:20 pmPost count: 1068
