    I've been thinking about a Dodge chassis w/ 12V Cummins swap for my crew cab for years. Very interested in your build. Good luck and I'm subscribed!

    Beautiful man, looks like a beast, definitely going to have to do some major trimming on those fender liners!

    Thanks, the original fender liners are pretty beat up so I will probably make from scratch to help package the two batteries and work around those coil/shock towers.

    Sitting under its own weight again with Thuren Fabrication 3" coils and King shocks.

    Time to cut the floor out of the cab!

    Awesome, just got mine in the garage has it ductless blasted, rain got to it even though I had a "waterproof cover" on so picked up some unwanted surface rust. I'll get a thread going in the not too distant future, and wanted to mention.. not sure what cargo area was like on the B series but I'm planning to relocate my batteries to the rear just food for thought!

    EDIT: I'm an idiot... was thinking this was a travelall!

    What did you pay to have it blasted, if you don't mind my asking?

    I'm bouncing back and forth over having it blasted, sanding everything my self or buying a sand blasting attachment for a pressure washer.

    I only had the exterior shell blasted.. not including the roof, doors, fenders, hood, or tailgate.. I was trying to spend as little as possible on it. Paid $400 it was worth it, next project I will more than likely wire wheel it with the $5 knotted wire wheels from harbor freight the 4.5" ones have been doing beautiful on the undercarriage.

    A little teaser of the undercarriage on mine. Some areas the coating was failing, some areas looked like just dust and hit it with the wheel real quick and didn't look like there was any paint or coating! Other areas coating came off easily and had paint underneath or coating was real stubborn coming off. The thick rib back was about 2 hours

    Nice! Looks great.
    Yeah, I love the knotted wheels on a 4.5" angle grinder, just be prepared to look like a porcupine when your done. I did just buy a 9" angle grinder and will buy the some knotted wheels for it!

I've gotten some good ol wirewheel acupuncture several times now, had a wire whack me right on my eyelid felt great (goggles were fogging) alright let's see some more progress! My dad's coming over to give a hand this weekend so 2 guys about 6+ hrs we should finally get some serious progress going, snapping shots along the way I'll get a thread going once she's primed up
