It's actually not a sign rather my wife and her dad painted it. I should have an update from the last couple of weeks ready this afternoon!

After figuring out exactly where the cab will sit and doing a little planning itís time to get the old body mounts off and shorten the front. The plan is to take 3 ĹĒ out just behind the body mounts.

Just after cutting, all that dirt on the ground came out from the inside of the frame. I knew there was a small hole on the bottom side but after cutting found out just how bad things were. Check out the nuts and bolts.

All that shouldnít be too big of a deal to fix. I decided to take the back cab mounts off next.

Attached Image: 47.jpg
Attached Image: 48.jpg

In the process of taking one off, I found a thin spot in the frame and started poking at it with a screw driver. Things just kept getting biggerÖ IT seems as though the only thing holding it together is the undercoating.

Itís going to be easiest to repair this whit the frame flipped over. After pulling the engine and trans. the only thing left is the fuel cell. The steel box it sits in only has one small drain hole in the back and is tight fitting. Consequently, it was full of water and sand. It took over an hour to get it out. I had use air to blow the crap out, wiggle it around and blow more out until it was finally free.

After flipping the frame, found a couple interesting things. I think thatís bondo, donít know if I want to find out what itís covering. Thatís the trailing arm mount where itís welded to the axle tube.

Time to start inspecting the rust, more poking around with the screw driverÖ

After determining the extent of the rust and making a plan, itís time to start cutting. You can see that this thing was patched at one time before.

Replaced the gusset and dragging block mounts with all new.

Finally get to move on to the front portion of the frame. I cut the bottom of the frame off and made a new piece to replace it.

Attached Image: 77.jpg
Attached Image: 78.jpg
Attached Image: 79.jpg

Drilled out the rusted away nuts and welded some new ones in.

Attached Image: 80.jpg

The front portion welded back on.

Next is shortening the suspension brackets. Here you can see how much the frame was shortened. I decided it was easiest to cut the sides of the brackets away back to the strut mount, flatten out the bottom and make new side pieces.

Thatís it for the bottom side of the frame, now it can be flipped back over. Then the cab can go back on and the new mounts made.

Nice work! I'm hoping to drop that exhaust off this weekend if that works, by the way.

That was the old frame from the Stout, not the one pictured. Really no use for it so I had it scrapped.

First up, I decided to fix the rear bag mounting bolts. It was a simple fix that only took about a half an hour. Just took a piece of tubing and cut a flat down the length of it and weld it in. Now the bolts can actually be tightened up.

Attached Image: 53.jpg
Attached Image: 88.jpg

I thought before I flip the frame right side up I might as well scrape off some of the loose paint. Well, the putty knife literally fell through the frame. Like all the other spots, it was rusted from the inside out and only the undercoating was covering the hole.

Attached Image: 90.jpg
Attached Image: 91.jpg

After drilling a few drain holes, I flipped the frame over and set the cab on. With the cab sitting exactly where itís supposed to go I started fabricating the front mounts.

It would be nice to move the frame up about an inch and a half, but there is really no good way to do that. If I were to put the bumper on in the stock location the frame would hang down about an inch. Mounting the bumper an inch lower will cover it. Then there will be about an inch gap between the body and bumper, but I donít think anyone would notice.

This last weekend I finished up the other front cab mount and started working on the other four mounts. Iím using aftermarket replacement rubber mounts for the í92 pickup.

Here is the mid mounts, bent up a piece of 3/16 to make them.

The next big project is going to be getting the bed on. Iíve had a few ideas on how I want to do it and settled on what I think will be the best overall way to go. The plan is to have the bed sides bolted to the frame using a custom made square tube framework. The floor will then have its own framework and be hinged in the front. This will allow good access to all the hardware under the bed. The first thing to do is remove the old gas tank mounts. Then the floor and wheel wells need to be removed. Latter they will need to be mounted up higher in the bed because of the suspension.
