Default 1962 Gmc dump truck

Well here we go started on the project pulled the dump box off , cab , motor , both transmissions , All the way down to the bare frame ,
What a greasy oily mess , should of started this project about 10 years ago
Not as young as I used to be,
Found out It had a 401 Magnum , thought it was just a 401 they must of replaced the motor took both of the transmissions in to get resealed and gone through , took power steering box , power assist ram and pump in to get rebuilt
The truck has a 5/16 thick main frame , with a quarter inch up right fish plate laid over the main frame which dirt and water got in between and rusted and then bowed out the outer frame ,
Everything was going just fine tell that I am having a new outer frame made
Those rivets are a pain in the butt

Here's another pick taking off the cab , check out the firetruck in the background
Bought the firetruck for parts but after picking it up is so clean it's like brand-new , it only has 8,700 miles on it, it's a 5000 series came with a 478 , I can't take it apart I'll have to take apart one of the other trucks
