Little bit of Hunter Green Satin rattlecan, misted with a spray bottle of laquer thinner, some scotchbrite pad and it all looks just as shabby as the rest of the vehicle. But now you can fold down the tailgate and it stays attached to the truck.

A thing of beauty GB. By the way, that bomb hoist looks like a real head knocker on the red truck. Merry Christmas to all.

This is a little late in coming but it took me a while to find these photos. Someone wanted to know what that panel truck was that was parked behind the one in the foreground. Here is photographic proof. Better late that never?

Thanks! I was thinking it was a Ford based on shape of window. So that would have been a 1-1/2 tanner? Year?

Now THAT one is worth restoring! Or at my shop it would be worth 'fixin up'! The tonner has a really nice rear fender. It's the right rear that is almost always beat. Front fenders are a dime a dozen for tonners and big trucks as the wheel opening is larger than the pickup. Many people find this out too late after the swap meet has folded up.

GB, found a project on the h.a.m.b for you.

I wish I wasn’t 3,000 mile away, I always wanted a dump truck.

Looks like a Watson or similar auxiliary trans. Wonder if its an over, direct, and under unit? Had one in a '40 1 1/2 ton flatbed I had. Better than a 2 speed rear end most of which were low and lower gearing.

Thanks, but somehow I never wished for a dump truck. I handle a lot of finish lumber, wood beams and plywood. All of these forklift off the side of a flatbed very nicely. Don't really handle stuff that dumps. I do like that truck though, but I can't just keep stacking them up. Thanks though!

This morning before work I removed the driver side kingpin with my newly fabricated kingpin 'pusher'. Inspired by a snap on product I saw in a thread here. With the 18v impact driver on the pusher bolt the kingpin rose steadily and easily. I had to add a piece of shafting to push it all the way out until I get a longer push bolt. The wooden honing spoon can't be far behind at this point. I have the backing plate and and spindle setting on my woodstove in the cabinet shop and after dinner will go down with my solvent and brush and get them cleaned up. Tomorrow the other side. I have the new brake hoses and the 5 cylinders in shipping boxes. Hard lines I get at the local napa. I prefer the black coated lines. Still waiting for my kingpin set to arrive. I have always used NORS pins in the past but noticed a set of current manufacture by moog on many sites, so gonna give them a try. Really hoping they aren't the new 'pre-honed' style. Wih all the variables involved, how could they ever get that right? Sheesh!

Since I have no heat in my shop where I work on trucks, I sneak up to my warm cabinet shop to set greasy parts etc on the woodstove so they can soften up. Then gunk and parts brush, laquer thinner, scotchbrite, sandpaper, air hose and a coat of red primer before I retire for the evening. It has worked out well for over 40 years. Woodshop pays for the heat and by early evening the dust has settled well enough for the kind of painting I do. Don't git much better than a day like this. Signed, 'Easily Amused'....
