I got some epoxy primer sprayed on the bottom of the cab:

While I waited for that to dry, I through some paint on the T98 transmission:

Once the epoxy primer set, I rolled raptor liner onto the bottom of the cab:

Then I rolled the frame back into the garage. I welded some shims in for the rear engine mounts I’m using. I ended up having to cut some of the mount backing plate off that goes beneath the cross member due to interference:

Then to finish out the weekend, I set the engine and transmission back in the frame:

Small update. Progress has been a little slow as of late with other things in life.

During disassembly of the chassis I noticed the transfer case cross member had some cracks around the mounting holes and was a little tweaked. The design doesn’t give much lateral support and I can see how the transfer case could move around under load. With a search I’ve seen others have added an extra brace so I followed suit. Here is what I came up with.

The mount is bolted directly to the pto cover plate on the TC and sandwiched to the bottom frame rail flange with some poly mounts I had.

I’ve got a few other little updates but just realized I didn’t take any pictures. I’ll get some for the next post.

Looking good and thanks for the update with pictures. I figured I am about 1.5 years behind you with mine.

This is a fantastic thread. Thanks for sharing! The pics of the cowl repair are priceless :)
No problem. Thanks for the compliment. I’m happy to contribute as so many others have done.

I haven’t been able to do much on the truck lately. With paint stripped it’s in hibernation until threat of rain and rust has passed.

In the meantime I’ve been tinkering on this off and on:

My dad’s first pickup he ever owned.

The wife and I also just adopted a couple of boys so there goes most of the free time I have/had. It’s worth it though.

Not much of an update but I’m still tinkering on the truck here and there as I have time. I’ve just about got all the bodywork on the cab done to be able to epoxy prime. Then I still have the front clip to prep.

Hopefully this fall/winter life slows down a little so I can put some more time into the truck. I may be moving to another place a couple miles down the road that has some more garage space. This should afford me the opportunity to work on things in less favorable weather.

Hey is your Chevy a 63? I had a 61 Apache once, wished I never sold it! Your last post made me think I need to start planning on working in the garage this winter and how to heat it? I would love to put a wood burning stove out there but don't think I have enough room, I may use a kerosene heater. Thanks for the update, you're doing a nice job.

I may use a kerosene heater.
Picked this one up at HD last year.
Thing is a beast. Heats up a drafty uninsulated 1000 sq ft shop like nothing. Usually only need to run it here and there to keep the space warm enough to work.
Being able to wheel it around is nice too.

Thank you.

The Chevy is a 65. It was my dad's first pickup. It had a wore out 283 in it that was ticking so my dad parked it. When I was in high school I thought I would help him out so I yanked the engine out of it. I can't say he was too impressed when he got home from work that day. It then proceeded to sit in the driveway for roughly 25 years... It's always bugged me that it was just sitting their rotting away so now that I finally have the knowledge, tools, space and resources to do something with it I jumped on it. Plan is just to make a good runner out of it for the time being so my dad can drive and enjoy it again. No full restoration at this time.

I've swapped the rear axle, converted the front to disc brakes, and put on a power steering gear box. Next up is to build the engine. It will get a 400 sbc and 5 speed NV4500. The block is machined and ready to be built and the transmission is waiting on the sideline. Now I'm just trying to determine what heads and cam to run. It's not a hot rod so looking for something with some low end grunt. Goal is to have it back on the road by summer next year. We'll see how that goes as I still would like to keep progressing on the IH.

Work hours have been a little crazy this year. As the season starts winding down hopefully the hours back down too so I have the time to work on my projects.

Glad to hear you're still moving on the project. Your thread was my primary motivation for drilling into the cowl on my Travelall and cutting out the rust—thanks for the pictures and details!
