  • Ya'll remember my totalled civic?

    Well.. I primed the undersides.. still not ready for paint..
    Them body panels, one was stacked there in the corner of a fab shop.. while paying projects slipped in and out and friends projects came through.. Saturday.. someone tried to get me to push it out and insert thier emergency..

    I am going to roll that early hood over on the front and trim-wire edge it over the headlights.. trim and bolt the bumper cover back on and do a stainless grille like I did on the F1..

    How much do you figure that baby will haul? It certainly will be unique.

    The danger is not that computers will come to think like men - but that men will come to think like computers. - some guy on another forum not dedicated to machining

      I like that! Looks pretty nice.

      Wasn't there an old Nisson that was 'modular' so you could in theory swap out the rear section and make a pickup convertible or wagon?

      Converted a bronco 2 into a pickup a few years ago, looked pretty nice. Next project is to either convert my 2 door explorer over, or swap on a standard ranger cab and shorten a box to fit. (unfortunately, all I can find are extended cabs, or long boxes.)

                I love your sheet metal forming work, I suck at metal forming and I know its a true art to get that right..

                but I have to ask, what is up with that welding job? all just tack welded and no beads and no grinding before painting? Maybe it doesnt matter since its a 'work' truck but just tack welds alone looks so nasty to me.

                If you suffer from blowthrough while running beads try 0.024" solid core wire at 30A~ with argon/co2 (Put up wind blockers for outside), flux core is a PAIN in the rear to weld sheet metal with.

                Welding painted things isent all that fun either..

                  Back when full frame, full size cars were still commonly available, it was pretty common to see automobiles turned into pick-up trucks in these parts. Haven't seen one in quite some time. Nice job as usual David.
