Project Kaoss: Bagged and Bodied 620.

Well, I was going to wait until I got some real work done, but here it goes.

Some rotten gas... It smelled so bad!!!

The plan is a stock floor body drop on 18's. New paint, shave some stuff, and roll it low every were it goes. I'll be running the stock wheels until I can get some billets for it.

 

Picked the truck up four years ago for $425. The odometer says 48000, and the lady I bought it from said that it has not rolled and that it set in a field for about 20 years. The floor boards are rusted out, but the body is in really good shape. It ran good a couple years ago before I parked it. I'll keep this post updated as I do work on it.

And it is paint, it will be fun to sand off! The truck has factory air, that I am pulling out of it, so if someone wants it make me an offer.

please keep the paint scheme! its so god awful its cool! as for the AC it does have its advantages. especially down south. but its your call on what you want with your truck. it looks to be in better shape than my 73 though.

Good luck, it's a long road you're about to venture down. It will be full of fun times and times you will wonder why you ever started. Seems like yesterday that I started yanking the cab and bed from my beast. Looks like you've got a good platform to start with though.

 

Keep it up!

I am going with a 2.5" body drop, this one is going to lay flat rocker :D

 

very nice! cant wait to see more pics! wish i was closer so you could help me with my sfbd :(

 

I can still help. All I have done is searched and searched, looked at other peoples build threads. I have also tried to read everything that Max Fish has posted or written. His thread on streetsource.com is awesome, and there is also a lot of good build threads there.

Thanks. This is my second personal mini truck build, so I know all about the love/hate relationship. You were lucky to have that fork list handy. We are pulling my cab off with about 8 fat mini truckers lifting with all there might.

 

The paint will go, but don't worry, I have a 3 toned vision that will make everyone ever forget about that paint.

if i drove to you and helped with everything i could, what would you charge me to drop my truck?

 

Ha ha, I'm almost 14 hours away, and I don't do work on the side. You would be better taking it to Little shop of Horrors. http://www.friendlychopshop.com/

That is some dedication right there! This is going to be an all winter project. And with my new born being here next month, I'm not going to have a set schedule to work on it, I just don't think that I am going to be able to help you beyond answering questions on this post.

She was three weeks early!!! 5lbs 12oz, 18 1/2 inches. She's amazing. I can't wait to teach her how to weld. The Datsun will have to be on hold for a little while, but she's well worth it!
