Man she was! Lol she's always been the one down lol it was me and her all day breaking it down. As far as plans...as of now my main focus is updating the suspension to the s-10 frame. I don't wanna start barking out what I'm going to do. Ill let my actions and build speak for itself ;)

Nice project. I think the extra front fenders and hood you have are for a 54-55 1st series truck. It uses a different style grille.

I sold em already. I was thinking They where GMC? Idk...all I know is they r gone and I have the frame and rear fenders to get rid of. Anyone?! Lol

I sold the bed as well, it was a long bed. With that money I found a short bed for it. So hopefully this weekend I can pick up the frame and bed. I wanna start on the frame brackets.

Lol Yea let me just build a wall steardy enough to hold a truck frame. But I'm just gonna set the cab on 4x4 blocks and weld the brackets to that height. The frame dips where the 49 frame stayed straight. I have to compensate for the drop.
