Looks like you got a good truck to start with. I know how you feel with the lack of space issue. I have two trucks and only one side of our two car garage to work with and my '68 barely fits in. Thats why were moving to 5 or so acres and a 40' X 60' shop so I might actually be able to start the frame off on the '72. Good luck and keep us posted!!

Sorry no pics on this one :( Mon--engines out/on the stand,tranny and driveshaft's are out.Exhaust and E brake cables(soaking in used motor oil)
are removed along with TL harness and brake lines. Suspension parts have been sprayed with PB(todays task)and hopefully they'll give way. I'm gettin really close,to starting in the other direction with this project.

Alotta First's for me this week :thup:
Never before in my life have I disassembled front end
Image
Nor have I ever taken a rear end out
Image
Or disassembled rearend--heres a pic of it before I pulled brakes,axle shafts and took the "guts" out of it
Image
Started with the rear(no magor changes)of the truck,painting inside&backside of brake housing(?)and the face of the drums.Picked up all new brake parts(as long as its on the bench)and ended up going with "Chassis Saver"(my buddie swears by it)as opposed to POR or eastwood(they were out until?)system for rust proofing frame.I have painted rearend,shackles and frame up past front shackle perch with it so far.SCORE---box of Polyurethane bushings came with 67 from PO--kit includes FlexOmatic shackle bushings and cab blocks :thup: Pic's to come
as I reassemble.

I used the urethane bushings(out of the kit--67parts truck Xtra)up getting flex-O-matic back together and have to wait for NPD order now
Image
Plans for this week---rear reassembled to frame,finish cleaning and painting frame-roll chassis out(find somewhere to store it :doh: )and clean shop-organize parts and tools--again. Start motor project--360/390
