Who can believe, 5 days before Christmas and its 50 out.

Had to try out the new shoes Big Grin Had a buddy take a test drive also and he was impressed, makes it all worthwhile.

Drove it a total of 6 times, each one more pleasurable than the first LOL.

Time for final tear down and onto paint. Oh Boy!!!

Luckily my passenger door was original and still completely intact. My disassembly was as the pictures go , One way to do it I guess.

Was able to remove the glass and not destroy anything. But also found some rot along the bottom edge that will need to be addressed.

Also I found remnants of (I presume) original glass down inside door.

Got the complete wiring harness out in 1 piece. Wasn't as bad as I thought actually. Unfortunately my gauge panel will need some interior work, chunks of paint floating around and now missing numbers off odometer. Hard to believe this was still operational.

Will be removing cab tonight, frame going outside, building my spray booth this week hopefully.

Got the Booth almost completed, (done) hoping to lay some paint down this weekend. Kinda hard to show the size, basically 12' x 8'.

Picked up my 2K Epoxy, gun, sandpaper and ready to paint.

Did some rust treating with KBS RustBlast, like it much better than Ospho. Seemed to work a lot faster.

Underside of running board was wire brushed, degreased, Rustblast treated, scrubbed during this time with scotchbrite pad for 1 hour. Rustblast wiped off, than rinsed with water. Compressed air dried. 2K epoxy sealer applied with gravity feed gun.

High build primer applied 3 coats

Got my work cut out for me for the next few winter months. LOL

Did/do you find rust along the interior top of the windshield? Curious about that because I've seen several like that but it seems like an illogical place for rust.

None on mine, but lower is in need of serious treatment. No rust thru at least.

Trying my luck at bondo.

3 coats high build primer, blocked with 80.

First attempt at filler, too hot and got hard quick, ended up scraping it all off.

Second attempt much more useable, small area but looks more like it should.

Blocked with 80 and than marked all my areas needing filler.

Laid some more filler, blocked it with 80 on a air board sander.

150 fpm air movement across fender, perfect.

2 coats high build primer, drying now for the night.

A few flaws but hey its a 75 year old truck.

Wow, what an amazing illustrated chronology of the build. How are you moving air through the booth? Thanks.

Thanks

The exhaust is a fan I had picked up 25yrs ago. I actually have had this design, idea (my booth) since than. When my VW was ready for paint, I decided it was better for a expert to finish it. The fan is located up in the peak of my garage and connected via a cloth flexible duct.

20 years lster , I decided to do this truck all myself.

I have a approx 24 x 30 filtered intake. Which gives me a nice airflow of 150fpm across the spray area.

Looks like you're not going to leave much work for the "next generation"

The whole drive train and engine are staying original, that should give them something to clean up and paint.

My wife wants nice paint and interior and that's what she'll get.

Other fender done, little filler and 3 coats high build primer.

Jumping around a bit, decided to tackle the underside of the cab.

Normal routine on the underside. Wirebrushed, than AquaKleaned, then RustBlast (ospho), degreased and finally tacked and sprayed with RustSeal

Opened up side of booth to fit the cab in there.

2 coats RustSeal and now have all my undersides done (bed excluded)

Lastly sprayed a test panel of a possible color for the truck. Gray with a blue tint. Still totally undecided on color. Might go with a burgundy or maroon even. Wife is still debating. LOL

Purist's might want to look away. This is the heater that was in the truck.

CHEVROLET SUPER DELUXE.

Curious was there a Ford Deluxe

What are the two tabs at the very front of the frame used for? Did the passenger car frame have them also? You're doing very nice work on a very nice truck.

Thanks

The truck frame horns were different than the passenger car frame. I swapped over to the original truck frame horns. Not sure what the outer holes are for, the other set is for the radiator.
