  1. Loving the work. inspiring me to get my butt into gear and start working on my truck again
  2. Good morning fellas, Been awhile since my last post, life had got in the way of any truck progress and things were pushed aside why i decided what i wanted to do with the engine. Long story short i pulled the engine and box and brought it into work to give it a once over, pulled the sump and found a brown milkshake surprise waiting for me. Turns out the engine has had water sitting in the sump for the past 15 year or so, goes to show how good the sump holds up. Tore it all down to access the damage and found the cylinders are toast and the cam sustained excess
  3. Hi all been a while had some life things going on so progress has stalled but will get back into it shortly and post up some pics
  4. Gday, Sorry for the late reply have been away for a while and haven't had time to follow things up. I will be making the window supports to the same style as what was originally there even thought a lot of the wood is rotted I'm able to get the measurements from it to make them.

Once body complete ill have more time to access whats missing as I still have boxes to rummage through and see whats there. Thanks Sean
  7. Hey Stakeside, I am using Victorian Ash hardwood for the build as its is available in the sizes I need. As this in not a true rebuild there has been a few variations I have put in place to strengthen the body as well as shorten its width because the original build was rubbing against sides. As I have torn it down I noticed that the truck was originally a tray truck with the front and doors being a modern addition.
