    Thank you, Bob. It’s a good 50 foot truck as they say. Looks like the unit it was attached to was really good at painting over rust. The fenders, doors, cab corners, stake pockets, tool boxes, and stiff leg sockets all need rust repair. Thankfully, I’m very prepared for that having lived in the rust belt all my life.

    Chris, how much of the truck-specific stuff have you been able to locate vs. are you still looking for? I am curious how far away from completing the truck you are. That sure is a great truck to restore.

    Thanks, Bruce. Up until about 2 weeks ago, we had been able to find all of the BII except for the trunnion and the stake pocket adapters. Thankfully, Kenny in WI was able to find a trunnion for me, so now we just need a set of stake pocket adapters.

    The first of many boxes of new parts arrived today! The ends on both of the truck’s door handles have rusted off, so it’s time for some fresh ones!

    I can’t think of his name either. One of our fellow SS members knew him and was able to contact him about selling me a trunnion. He wasn’t interested in selling that, but I never asked about the stake pocket adapters. I’ll have to go back through my old PMs and see if I can find him.

    That’s right. Thanks, Jon. It’s hard to remember all of the details. I’ve had so many conversations about M756A2 BII over the last 15 years.
