    Here is the frame after removing the 36" center section, 11" tail piece and 4" nose

    First weld on making the frame one piece again (not including tack welds)

    Third weld, a nice long run down the frame rail... not bad even if I do say so myself...

    So... now the frame is back in one piece and I have plated the outside and will plate the inside tomorrow.

    I was given a 1st gen long bed pickup frame, cab and bed. :thumb:

    most of the parts I have been given are in better shape than the ones on my blazer, so as I need/use parts, I am going to replace the ones on my blazer with the better/nicer ones and use the blazer ones on the truggy.

    big negative on the Sammi... I couldnt find one cheap enough (free) and Troy mentioned that he worked with a guy that was taking a couple 67-72 trucks to the scrap yard. So, to make a long story short, I have been picking up parts from him that he is/was going to scrap and building a truggy.

    so far its been the perfect project, I have $0.00 to spend on it and have had to spend $0.00 on it. :thumb:

    ryan... I assume when you plate it you are using a fishplate or triangle technique so as to not stress the frame...
    nice work on the welding... what process?
