    This truck will be getting Lizard Skin inside and out, sound deadening and thermal. Frame and suspension will be taken to bare metal and painted, axles rebuilt, new brakes and a laundry list of other work as well.

    A little surgery was required. Removing enough frame to make the wheelbase work under the 60 was fun. I sleeved it with a box made from 1/4" steel, 18" long. Seam was left open enough for the welds to penetrate well into the inner sleeve. 46 rosette welds total. I do not think it will move

    In case you are wondering, this is the "twist"

    First fitting, figuring out all the body mounts to come.
