How many people did it take to move the cab on to the frame? Where the doors still on?

BTW - will there be lounge space for the meet?

5 of us, we moved it without the doors. Its a bare shell, except the glass; only weighs maybe 250lbs. The doors themselves are pretty heavy, close to 70 lbs probably.

Yes, there will be plenty of space for the meet; putting this truck together will get all the parts up out of the garage so we have room...truck can be pushed outside.

Well, I figured it was time for an update...I dug into the body work pretty hard the last couple weekends getting ready for paint. Removed all the old trim and sealed up the holes from it, and removed the titties holding the plastic trim retainers on. Removed all the old seam sealer on the cab, and sand blasted the drip edge. No rot found, just surface rust luckily, its gone now. Also, I removed the low hump (automatic tunnel) and replaced it with the proper high hump manual trans tunnel:

One of the trim holes disappearing:




Trim all removed, started sanding the body:


Automatic Transmission Tunnel coming out:



Trans Tunnel from the original cab [NO RUST...thanks to oil from leaky Cummins valve covers]...


Installed, ready to weld in on Monday...this was a big job, not the easiest panel to replace.


Took all the glass out and sanblasted the drip rail and windshield frame, all clean; ready for new seam sealer.


Manual Trans tunnel all welded in and done...


So far, this has been a ton of work....I've questioned my reasoning in diving in this far to an old truck; but damn, it will be worth it when its done. Next step is get her all back apart and down to bare metal for the body and paint prep.

Nice repair, what kind of spot weld cutter are you using? Just a drill bit?

Wont matter, vin tag is on the dash. The 93 had a sticker on the door jamb too, 89 did not, I am going to try and salvage it.

That's the type I was looking at getting, did it worked well? I'm going to have to pop a few out on my truck.

Worked like a charm. This is the preferred one if you are trying to save one or both panels.

Made a big dent in the parts pile today:



Just need to put the bed on, and do some prep work, and she'll be off to the body shop for body work/paint.

Old Red is coming back to life slowly but surely. Now with no rust! Body fit and mock up installation is complete. Time to take a break on it for a while to get some other things done. Then it will be time to start the body work and prep her for paint...

Figured it was time for an update.

The body is waiting to head to the body shop around labor day; I've done all I can do here --without buying a ton of tools and equipment I'll only use once...lol...so, I decided to get started on the engine.

Tore it completely down to a long block more or less, to replace all the gaskets; and front/rear main, and take care of the KDP issue. I'll also be cleaning up and painting it, and having some of the brackets and tubing powdercoated. It looks great inside for 247K, I thought for sure I'd find something wrong, but everything is fine....just leaky gaskets...Ive got all new gaskets except the head, and new oil lines for the turbo/vacuum pump, new thermostat, fuel heater, KDP insurance kit, fuel pump, and a few cans of Cummins Titanium black paint, ready to go..

Its been a long weekend; first, loaded her up and headed out on a 650 mile drive to NW Ohio to my good buddy's body shop:


After many hours of sanding, prep, and getting rid of a few dents over the weekend, we got the cab completed:



We sprayed bedliner on the floor and underneath the cab for extra protection:



Next step is install the drivetrain, and some of the interior components so she will run. Then back to the body shop to finish the paint work on the bed and front end!

Looking good Danbo Diesel LLC!

Will you have a driving on it's own power chassis next time you go up to Jake's for the final paint?
