    Well the wife got a killer job offer in Knoxville, TN so we are moving. I need to get rid of a 85 K5 frame, springs and axles. There will be part of a chopped cab still attached. This is currently in a 10x30 storage unit in Alpharetta, GA. If no one wants it I will be forced to chop it and scrap it. I have to go over there today and finish taking off the rear quarter panels. The front clip and rear quarters are what I wanted when I bought it.

    Please leave a post here if you want it and can come get it next weekend. I will follow up with PMs. Thanks.

    I will try to post a picture later on.

    Ok, to answer a few questions.

    Big Pappa B, The axles are 10 bolts. I do not know the gearing or think they would have lockers. The truck does have a body lift and lift springs in front and blocks in back. The springs look new.

    Johnny - yes, I still have the doors. There are one set of 76 manul doors with rust. There is one set of electric doors with dents. The passenger 85 should be fixable. There is also a new driver side door shell. As to the seats I have not had time to make new seat mounts to install the new seats. So the old ones are still in the K5.


    I have about given up on removing the quarter panels. They are most likely going with the rest. As to the body in general, do not think of it as a body but as a large set of patch panels.


    It has turely sucked trying to work in a storage unit. There is not lights or power in the unit and it hotter than hell. The only power tools I have is a set of 19.2 volts battery powered drills and sawsall. I will NEVER do this again. Luckily the house we are going to be renting has a nice two car garage.


    Keith, I would be grateful for any help but I want to let you know the conditions I work in.


    Gambit, we are moving to a little house near Chapman Hwy and 168. The wife will be working at NOVA.


    Someone has to want this even if just for the scrap.

    i didn't mean it like that, i have just met too many people here, that have had children with their sisters/cousins..... so i usually feel the need to state my position upfront.
