Spring has sprung here in Minnesota, so in a few weeks I'll be able to haul my '94 to the shed to get working on it. I posted WAY back when I first found this forum on my build plans. I'll start here again to bring everyone back up to speed. First off, is this the right part of the forum to post a "build" thread? If not please direct me to the correct location. thanks I restored a '51 Pilothouse B3D truck that was my great grandfathers truck. I seem to have a disease now, lots of old truck parts in my house, garage and at friend's sheds. I decided a few years back I was going to take a modern powertrain and graft on a Pilothouse cab/front clip as a daily driver. This truck will be a stretched 3 door cab flat bed stake side hauler style truck. I've got all the old Pilothouse cabs and doors to cut apart and re-weld up to the stretched cab. As well as all the doors I could need to make the 3rd door and fill the space behind the passenger side door. The '94 has a fresh rebuilt tranny and about 150K on the engine. I've been thinking that since it will all be available to work on, going thru the engine and rear end would be a good idea right now. Before I start to tear things off, any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Plans include air ride, saddle fuel tanks, rear duals and a tip up front end like a semi for engine work. thanks, I look forward to keeping this thread moving over the course of the spring/summer while things start under way.
