moodster replied to Brian Bundridge's discussion Removing cab and bed from frame question
"The cab is weldeded to the panels surrounding the engine including the front radiator support.  You'll also need to disconnect the steering, brakes, transmission linkage, etc to remove the frame or lift it a foot away. David"

moodster replied to Andro720's discussion Brake Caliper causing brake pad drag?
"I had this exact same problem.  It would cause the truck to pull to one side and the metal rim would get so hot it would pop and crack after I finished driving it.  I replaced the caliper and this fixed it for a little while but the heat…"

moodster replied to moodster's discussion Restoration Project
"I totally agree with you about enjoying doing it yourself.  For me it is a chance to learn, be creative and overcome hurdles.  If I start to not enjoy it then I just spray some primer on it and wait until I'm eager to get back to work…"

Matt McCready replied to moodster's discussion Restoration Project
"Thanks a lot david. I've never done any sort of restoration project before and my truck needs a ton of work. A lot of people say I should just scrap it and save up for a truck that is already redone, but I prefer the idea of doing it myself and…"

moodster replied to moodster's discussion Restoration Project
"It is pretty much the same process I used for the bed... I cut the panel back until I've gotten all the rot out then I figure out how to make a new panel.  If you look at some of my work on the taillight area then you'll learn more…"

"Finished the wheel well this weekend.  I welded the seam solid and it worked out nicely... no distortion in the panel and I was able to smooth the seam out with a roloc disc. david"

moodster replied to Tommy Perkins's discussion Hood insulation
"The hood insulation on my 85 follows every contour in the hood.  I can't imagine you'd find a generic substitute that fits as good as the original.  So if you're looking for the best quality that means either new old stock…"

moodster replied to moodster's discussion Restoration Project
"That website is a great resource.  I had looked on there before... the inside left and right panels are about $300 a piece plus a crazy amount for shipping.  Then you'd need some sections of the floor, wheel well, etc.  Anyways I…"

moodster replied to moodster's discussion Restoration Project
"I make all the replacement panels myself.  I did look into just buying new panels but it would be expensive... around $2k.  I'm not certain how the 83.5 bed was put together.  If I could see some pictures, I could probably tell…"
