Oh great another 10+ page thread about getting screwed............Hope not.


Just kidding and cool truck, I almost bought one about 10 years ago but the owner which was a good friends grandpa with alzheimers who said he wanted $10,000 for a rusty truck that needed to be restored. Well I was told to wait awhile until he got some sense back or until he forgot about it but that never happened, I bet they scrapped it.

No but IMHO both him and Scooter got burned by the original seller. I think it would be fair if they split the cost (or both went after the original seller together) but it sucks Scooter has to take on the financial burden of stupid himself.

I don't have to - Denny went above and beyond what he had to do and gave me back a SUBSTANTIAL amount of cash. In fact, Denny ended up eating $700 on this deal start to finish. He wanted to give me 100% of my money back, but I think I have serviceable cores and can use them.

Denny (DMCJeep) is first-rate, and I still stand behind my signature in claiming "Brads01WS6" is a lying douchebag that is not to be trusted.

Default Update!

Update!
Radiator is hosed, so I took JohnnyJ's advice and bought an aluminum one from speedway.
Yanked the old radiator out, expecting a simple swap and of course, that wasn't the case.


^^^ Lookit that front crossmember. Remember how I said that frame was bent? Looks like the truck was also winched or towed by the center of the front crossmember.


^^^ Out and on the ground. You're looking at the front of the crossmember - see how it's all twisted?



^^^ Oh yeah, frame needs a bit of work...



^^^ Wire brushed and ready to work on.



^^^ tacked this on to assist in bending it back to the correct shape



^^^ as straight as I could get it


^^^ Cracks welded & ground




^^^ Paint!



^^^ Size difference in radiators.

Tomorrow I'm going to continue on the frame and get the rad mounts mocked up. grabbed some 22 ga sheet and will also build a fan shroud for the electric fan I have.

scoots did you watch trucks today or yesterday? They finished up their 66 and took it for a spin. Of course they went more for show truck than cool truck, but maybe give you some inspiration :)
