Default I might actually finish this thing!

Well it has been a while since I post any updates, so here it goes.

In the past month I have replace the tires, installed another 50 gallon fuel tank on the drivers side, replaced the front bumper, and drilled more holes than I want to remember...

This past weekened I was able to get a hatch installed for some air movement in the box.

So a little more got done this past weekend, I am thinking that by the end of the month the box will be on the frame! That is if all goes well, and the weather holds out.

Looks good. Are you going to cut out the back of the cab and make a pass through to the box?

Yeah, the cab has a 60" by 60" knockout section from the factory. I will reinforce it according to the service manual prior to any cutting. I am using the same mounts on the cab as well since I am hard mounting the box to the cab as it was originally mounted on the old chassis. Hopefully it all works out, so far lots of measuring before any cutting or drilling.

So I was able to finish up all the support brackets and crossmembers to support the box. Nothing like 3/4" bolts through 3" poly bushings to keep everything in place! Well it is now ready to be pulled all apart and painted. I also need to order a new front fuel tank bracket for the passenger side. The truck had been in an accident before I bought it, so I am still sorting out some of the damge. After paint it will be ready for the box swap! Which is a good think, because the old ambulance van frame is really starting to rust out!

Stripped all the new metal work off for paint. Time to wire brush the whole frame and get to painting!
