got a boatload of parts en route for the truck, hopefully will arrive by the end of next week.

Got the old man coming down this weekend to help me lift the body, I've decided in the interest of both time and sanity its coming off in one go... I cannot bear to put it back together without addressing issues I might find so I am going with blissful ignorance on the rest of the truck

I know you don't want to hear this, but IMHO you are at the time/money point where I think it would be foolish not to fix up that bulkhead while doing all this. The fenders come off easy and then after the doors, floors and tunnel cover, the bulkhead can come off the rest as a whole easily as well.

Agreed, but no time to address it this year, I will have to take care of it in the spring.

Considering I am planning on repairing mine and having it galvanized its just not going to be possible before winter sets in. The summer is for bodywork after all (unless you have a heated garage, then the question is, 'can I squat for a month?')

Since I don't see a two post lift, I would be inclined to do it in chunks. It is really not that hard and you will have the advantage of fitting things back with new bolts and anti-sieze.

The bulkhead will need to be addressed at some point but the way I look at it now is that you can swap the body to the new chassis drive it for a year or two and have fun or you can tear it all apart and have it apart for who knows how long.

Keep your eye open for a decent bulkhead and other parts you want to replace in the future and you can have it all prepped and ready to go when you decide to swap it in at a later time.

Make sure you mark everything and take pics

ziplock bags work great for little parts and you can use a marker on the bag

Just looked at my build thread and I took the 90 apart July 2010... Man I am a SLACKER

I agree he needs to get it done and keep the truck on the road at all costs. Doing it twice is just more work overall. I'm looking forward to seeing this build - I am super impressed by guys who take these projects on without a garage.

please please please BE SAFE.

What you are doing can be dangerous. Don't risk injury or death by half-assing the lift.

My degree is in English but I minored in physics :D

Safety is #1

So is redundancy; and not being under the truck while you're picking it up

Jason - my son and I looked at your truck when you had it up for sale. If you ever need a second set of hands I am in your neighborhood almost every day. Good luck.

Much appreciated! I've been a one man army for this entire build, I'll let you know if I have beer and pizza raining from the heavens

Just being sure. I have seen some scary attempts and someone recently died when a disco fell on him.

In the interest of doing it right I will be lifting tomorrow; I've got a few odds and ends to clean up and I'd prefer giving myself a whole afternoon to pick her up slow and get it situated so as not to have any miscalculations

Make sure to put all the bolts back on with anti-sieze! Why don't you set up a camera with stop motion video so we can all see?
