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.

Kevin's 1977 Chevy Silverado Big Block 454 w/ TH400 trans
This is the truck I've been working on for about three years. The frame and
axles are from a 1985 GMC Sierra 3/4 ton 4x4 with a 350 engine and a TH400
transmission. My grandpa purchased a 1977 Chevy Silverado Camper Special
brand new back in 1977. That truck had a 454 big block engine and a TH400
transmission in it. My goal is to make the '85 GMC look like a 4x4 version
of my grandpa's truck -- with a plethora other modifications/
customizations. I have pictures of the project posted on webshots:

Chassis Saver ON THE FRAME!!!!
I love this stuff!!!!!!!!!! I got mine from my local paint shop and it was
only $45 a Quart :) That is really not that bad because its really thin and
a quart goes a LONG way. 2 coats or maybe even 3 and you will not be
disappointed. DON'T GET IT ON YOUR SKIN!!!!!
