Yeah, sorry. No video. I posted here by mistake. I PM'd a moderator trying to get it moved to the photo section. Thanks for looking.

Great start to a rebuild. How long have you been working on it so far? Any help from friends, or are you working on it alone?

Been working on it since the 2nd week of November. Been going it alone so far, although the tub is loose now and I'm getting 3 or 4 buddies to come over for beer and lift it onto a big homemade cart that I built to wheel it around for blasting/painting/etc.

First shot of body primer. Lots of sanding ahead, and haven't even touched the bottom yet:

That's good work .. nice to see the old-iron being refreshed again.

Are you planning to wheel it hard when you are done, or will it be a light trail-runner?

I'm really glad you decided to reuse the same tub. Now you can really say it's yours and that you did it all. Great pics.

Very nice, love the fact you are keeping the tub, going same color or something different? When you plan to get it back on the road?
