Keep up the good work. I know it can be frustrating when you don't get to drive it for a while; I didn't get mine running & dd duty until I had it for 2 years or so.

FYI: POR15 does not hold up uncoated. You should put a coat of paint on top of the POR15, it does not hold up to the UV rays and turns to a chalky white color. It is intended to be a rust stopper not a final coating and needs a top coat.

Not being an @$$hole or anything but I don't want you to end up in the same boat I was in when I built my first truck. POR15 sucked as a top coat item, then I read the directions and figured out why, it states to top coat it.

From POR15's directions:

10. POR-15 should not be applied over other
paints. It is UV sensitive and must be topcoated
with an opaque paint if left exposed to
the sun.

No worries, i decided not to topcoat it because the frame is going to be hidden when i have the body over it. Sunlight won't hit too much i think. Thanks for the concern though.

Nice progress! I love how you paying her back for saving you! The second I saw the first picture, I was like yup, he lives in Canada. After I saw where you were from I felt a little special knowing that the only reason I thought you were from Canada was because of the colour of the snow.

i would still consider painting it. even if you just rattle can over the por15, uv rays dont just hit the earth and disapear, they will reflect off surfaces like (pavement,blacktop,water,other vehicles) and still cause your frame to discolor. most vehicles have bodys on them and yet por still says to top coat it.

if nothign else just rattle can it. theres no point in leaving it undone while your where ur at now

Finally found the time to clean, degrease the engine, then paint it.






De-greasing was quite a pain in the ***, but it was worth it.

The list of things to do before I can put the body on:
- Fuel Pump
- Stripped bolt on T-Case
- Brake/Fuel Lines connected
- Wiring connections
- CKP sensor replaced
- Top-coat frame
I think that's it.

It is pretty sexy.

Little Update:

Got everything put back together. Got a new CKP sensor, water pump, fixed t-case and now I'm just waiting on the fuel pump.





Link to the whole album:
Rebuild Project

Have to fix yet another stripped out thread, this time on the transmission where the CKP bolts to. One was perfect, the other just decided to let go.
Quick fix.

More to come later this week.

Update time again:

Fuel pump arrived today. Installed it right when I got home.
Also painted the bottom of the frame with a rubberized coating. Solid stuff.




You can see where the old pump broke.

It's getting closer.

Update time again.

Did a good amount of work today, with the help of my dad, was able to get the following done:
- Removed old frame
- Cut frame into pieces
- Gutted the interior
- Put body on stands

Just need to do a little body work, fix a few things then I can swap it over.
In the meantime, I'm going to get the airbags out of the way and replace those this week. Just need to get that damn steering wheel off.
Also going to paint the rear calipers, diff cover, re-install the brake lines on the 44, and torque a few more things down.
