This is the rebuild of my 1979 ford F250 which I am the soul owener I bought the truck new in 79 it's original colors are candy apple red and wimbildon white. The blue ford in the vidio is a donor truck, all that is beening used is the frame. All the work so far is done mainly by me, except the sandblasting and painting of the frame. Iam only at the rolling chassie stage as of now, but be patient more to come , and by the way FORD stands for FOR ONLY REAL DRIVERS. BE cool. Ps yes it is only 2 wheel drive, but it has never let me down. There is another vidio called The rebirth. wmv, which'.s shows the complete rolling chassis . Please Comment

1978 Chevy Truck Frame Painted With POR-15
As a part of hotrodding my latest truck project I've removed all the old
paint and rust off the front frame rails and crossmembers using a wire
brush cup wheel on a Peanut Grinder. Next I sprayed the entire front end
down with Easy Off Oven Cleaner and scrubbed it in really well and then
rinsed everything off with water.
Next I sprayed the entire front portion of the frame down with the POR-15
"Prep Ready" to etch the metal and prepare it for the POR-15. After this
step I again washed all the residue off and then dried the frame till it
was bone-dry using a Metro-Vac MetroBlaster SideKick to use air to blast
out all the water. Metal has to be bone dry before applying POR-15 Paint.
After the frame was completely dried I applied the POR-15 using a quality
paint brush and the results came out awesome! The front part of the frame
looks better then new and it will never rust, at least not in my lifetime.

Stump Removing Apr-27-09 - Now the lil guys can play...
So I guess a lot of the mudders were complaining about getting hung up on
stumps. We never had any problems! Oh well, we put the "Swamp Thing" in
action, and yes the Boom/Claw, and Stump Blade is all homemade, fabricated
by Mike. We removed the stumps but we probably just made bigger holes for
the lil guys to get stuck in! mwahahaha

How To Repair a Rusted out Frame (partial).wmv
How to Repair a Rusted out Frame. Demo done on a 65 Chevy Impala. In this
repair if done right , you will not be able to see the repair. Most of
the Repair is done on the inside. This s Part 3 of a complete video that
is under production now. Do not try this at home unless you are an
excellent welder ! Most states will not allow frame repairs at all.
Actually this frame should of really been scraped.
Using citric acid for rust removal
Citric acid can be bought from drugstore (they use it in jelly or such to
adjust acidity) but it is very expensive there. Therefore Finnish rodders
buy it from some agriculture-store. It is not expensive. Officially it is
used as pigs obstruent! I dipped those parts in citric acid for overnight,
next day brushed it with wirebrush and flushed it with water. Then again
back to citric acid over night and wirebrushed + flushed it next day.
Flushing is important, you'll want to get all acid away, otherwise steel
will turn to yellow.
You can't use this method on all parts because of hydrogen embrittlement.
So no pedals, frames, brake drums, engine blocks or such to citric acid!!!
And yeah, parts should be clean -I've cleaned 'em with fuel- because grease
will neutralize acid. Ratio was 3%
Parts must be dried soon as you get them flushed, I quess you guys know
