You are welcome.  We were able to buy it buy the foot or roll.  If you cannot find it let me know and I will see if the place I got it from still has any.

No photos but it is now down to the frame only. Ready to go back to get metal work blasted and powder coated

Please don't do any crazy colors. Black is best on a frame. That's why they call it chassis black.

 

I had a client last year who wanted his entire chassis powder coated silver. Axles, steering, leaf springs and all. I talked him out of it.

Wow!  Nice to see your truck done to this level.   Hopefully, if JCCS is a go this year, you'll have it ready.  It's a serious contender for best of show...

New a street rod builder that painted his chassis a large metallic charcoal because it doesn't show dust like a traditional gloss black.

Small little trick stuff my guy does, those are exhaust mounts, rubber isolated and clean and simple.

That truck deserves an enclosed trailer.   It will be beautiful when you get it finished.

Too bad the same can't be said about the owner of said 521.
