I'm not sure this really fits in the garage so I'm gonna throw it here since I'm sure it'll generate some responses that are beyond sarcastic. I was cutting into the Pumpkin this weekend and realized how much rust was going on there. A good deal has been covered up and bondoed and I had the joy of hitting pockets with a sawzall and grinder. That's one of the reasons the narrowing job didn't turn out very well. The body is perty freakin weak all over the place. I had to reinforce the floors before I even considered pulling it outta the driveway and they're still not all that great. I love the body style of the truck and love the truck for what it is, but it's in worse shape than all previous inspections revealed. I don't have any particular emotional attachment to it other than it was/is my first real build. I could use the axles and drivetrain in a different project that was in a little better shape....like something with lots of tube. I'm planning on wheeling the hell out of this thing for at least a year or two but at this point it's kinda like polishing a turd. I've taken a wire wheel to the frame in a couple of places and don't like what I see. Don't get me wrong, it's still plenty strong and will last as long as I make it but I'd really like to build something that's gonna last me for a LONG time. I just don't like pissing money away and anything that I do the the truck itself that can't be stripped if/when it goes just seems like a waste. This is 50% weekend frustration and 50% solid thought processes...feel free to throw in your .02.
