Initially I need to get it running!!

Then I need to figure out how bad the frame is. Gotta figure out if I can patch it and drive it for a while or replace the frame.

If I can patch and drive it for a while then:

- parabolic springs & shocks
- paint

If I need to do the frame then that is first.

Unlike the others I have had I am going to keep this one...it is virtually rust free on the body. Footwell, bulkhead, breakfast, door frames etc are either rust free or only have surface rust.

Even the wifey wants me to keep this one

Big plans = Lotta work.

Two things:
1) you'd be surprised what you can patch on the chassis and keep it going for awhile.
2) DON'T paint it! Patina rules!

nope - that is Point of Rocks bridge

Jason - wait till you see it - it isn't patina - it is bad paint and a lot of panels are different colors, esp a black roof/top

I believe I already coined him Cedro Lones.

------ Follow up post added December 14th, 2013 07:23 PM ------

We would have also accepted Praig Juina.

------ Follow up post added December 14th, 2013 07:25 PM ------

Or better yet...the Brangelina of D-90: simply "Credro".

So yesterday I thought I would get into it a little bit more...I needed to figure out the issue with the generator, it looked to be a bad wire (actually snapped clean off when i moved it) so I spliced that and patched it. Then reconnected the generator.

Didn't get around to picking up a battery for it yet - but I hope that takes care of the issue with the generator.

To get to the generator I took off the left wing as I also wanted to get into the engine a little more and clean it up somewhat, as well as check out the frame in the engine bay. That was a PITA!! But well worth it. Got rid of a lot (about 48 years worth) of dirt, mud and crap.

The frame seems to have been shot/painted with some REALLY hard gunk i can not even scrape off! Good news is that underneath that stuff the frame is great.

Stripped the inside down to check that out too - real good under there - except for the dirt/oil and grime. After a good clean, wipe and scrub down I plan on repainting the entire inside...should look quite spiffy when i am done.

hehe....unlike my namesake this vehicle will be on the road in the spring of 2014!! And only in the spring, and not earlier, because there is only so much i can do in the garage, and have to wait for warmer weather to prep for paint.

Sorry mate - the wheels will be painted limestone soon...and staying on the truck. They are the ROAM wheels - 5 of them.

NICE! I've been looking for a writeup on that, as I actually plan to do the same...had not seen that article.

SWEET...thanks Jeff!! It is low on the list (unless the generator is actually bad) but something I thought would be good to do!

I said a "write up", not some Dro scribbled notes on a paper towel that has been soaked in beer and 90w and probably aren't even written in The Queens.
