Per Ricks request... Some more pics below. This has been over a year and a half now! Problem with painting the frame is everything that follows must also be painted and or new!!! My wife has been understanding, kind of..... She recently said "Isn't this just a plow truck?"... I think she was being a little sarcastic though? I know if i just slap it together that's the way it will stay, so it's taking forever!!!
Best part is my grand daughter assisting! She always gets the same "ranch" out of the toolbox and bangs it around!!
I am so glad you put that M1008 cab and frame back in service. I bought that perfect running truck from the Pennsylvania DNR or DEP. They branded the certificate as "Scrap for Parts Reclamation Only". Well after all these years the parts have all been reclaimed and recycled. The small block engine looks great in the old plow truck. Be Safe. Thank you for sharing. Keep the pictures up to date with your progress.
