Looks really nice.
The FC also
Thanks guys!Good to see the progress! Keep it up.
Damn Facebook. The photos are hosted there, and for whatever reason, the URLs change periodically (and seemingly randomly). I'll see if I can go back and upload pics to Pirate, or do something to make them last long-term. Facebook is both a blessing and a curse, depending on the moment/situation. For now, I re-added a pic of the old aluminum flatbed below.I love (in a non-homosexual way) this build!
Craig- I went back to look for the aluminum bed you had before and I'm not seeing some of your older pics at the beginning of the thread? Can you check the links or upload directly to Pirate? I'd hate to lose the tech in this thread because Facebook or photobucket,/flicker/instagram links get broken and don't work any more.
Was the aluminum bed that you had before a work bed or was it just a flatbed? Did you sell it because it was harder to weld aluminum (your Miller 211 should be able to weld Aluminum with a spool gun) or it just didn't fit the new design?
Regarding the truck itself, I'm waiting patiently to start working on this again...my schedule was crazy last week, and will be this coming week, as well. For anyone who's curious, the cab will come down about 6 1/2" relative to the frame from where it sits (hangs) now.
The old aluminum flatbed, which has now been re-sold.
