As usual Tom your workmanship is unparalleled. Your brakes look twice the size as my 1000 trucks. Congrats on getting it to a rolling chassis. Keep up the good work.

Next thing was fun. Someone pressed a further washer into the main drive gear. I think this was the reason why the rear bearing of the main shaft was broken. The additional washer pushed the main shaft backwards.

As I said, the next step is the steering column. Currently I have disassembled, blasted and powder coated the steering column. Next step is to assemble it. I also painted the first parts by myself. I think it's not so bad.

There is only a little problem with the plug of the turn signal. The counterpart on the wiring harness is unfortunately no longer available. Someone was playing with a knife. Unfortunately, the connector can no longer be bought. I will probably lay the cables straight through and connect them with solder connectors.

The most difficult decision for me was the choice of color for the truck . I've been most concerned about it for the past two years. The decision was made for Fawn for the interior and Light Blue for the exterior. The roof top turns white. I think that goes well together. I bought extra original color cards on eBay.

The first engine parts have already been painted. Please don't hit me, but the red from Ford worked best

Beautiful detail and work GMCTOM! The Ford red looks right on the mark.

What is still missing is a new turn signal switch for resetting the lever. It's available at LMC. Here some photos.

At the moment the engine is in progress. Cleaned and painted it the last weeks.
Next step is to change the timing chain. The plan is also to put the engine back into the frame over the next 3-4 weeks.
I'm currently waiting for the newly galvanized screws.

The part with the aluminum foil looks like from outer space but its cheap and fast
