So I joined a Ratrod forum. Has not disappointed. I was schooled on the advantages of using a dually van instead of a truck for a donor vehicle. The vans have the engine forward and the front axle set back. The steering is also easier to convert. So....I'm looking for a one ton dually van, motorhome, school bus, box truck.

Ordered 500lb casters and some steel to build a cab cart. Little Solidworks and I'm ready to weld up this afternoon.

Stopped at the farm to get some pics and take measurements for the cab cart. This old beast is in incredibly good condition.

I have a friend in Mozurrii who is building a Dodge COE, he used a donor Engine and running gear from a Chevalay Camper of somekind.... It worked well, he's got a running roller, and is working on the bed...
I kinda like Caddy Engines, sick of SB/BB Chevalays in everything..... Talk about boring.
Yup, it's not mine, but if it was, I'd have a nice 472 or 500 Caddy and Turbo 400 in that
truck !! I used a 62 Caddy 390 and JetAway Hydro in my T-Bucket project..
I like "Different".... Good Luck on that project !! "BH"

Got started working on Big Don this weekend.

Julia and I stopped at the farm today. She helped pull the fuel tank and the center floor panel.

Snagged some 2x12's from the BIL. Going to make a beam across my shed to aide in lifting the cab. Going to work on that tomorrow and finish up cutting odds and ends from the truck to free up the cab.

Also got my juice from work. Our chemist whipped me up a batch of good stuff.

A tough cleaner/degreaser "Complex Blue" I'll use this to deep clean the truck.

Then Big Don will get a good scrubbing with L-543. This is an acid descaler that will remove rust but not harm painted surfaces.

After the rust is all gone I need to neutralize the acid with another wash. Cascade is very alkaline and works well.

Then I'll rub him down with L-3932N. This is a water based long term rust inhibitor. This at 100% will keep the bare metal ready for paint for several weeks.


This is a whole lot cheaper than media blasting. But since I'm keeping the paint that was never really an option.
