    I hit survival/ice fishing in winter. Actually got the most snow on the ground now than we had in 20 years, 2 feet in the backyard. I hane to live vicariously through the guys here in the winter.

    Default 1953 Studebaker Couple into a fleetside pickup!! #16

    Got some stuff done over the last couple of days. Got the chassis onto the lift, got the cab out of the bull pen, got it onto the chassis. Mounted the front fenders on the the cab. Going to tack weld the hood to the fenders so I can get the cab body mounts positioned and weld the mounts on. I have to build the front fender mount support. Have to modify the hood, the rear of the hood pivot area must be removed.

    Working on getting the cab and front end aligned to the frame. Put the box on the chassis to get the cab at the right height. Got 3 of the 4 cab mount welded on. I have to pick up some 2"x1" tubing to build the frontend mount.

    I like the way you recycled the S-10 mounts
    There are two things in life where penetration is really important.....and one of them is welding.

    Worked on the 4th cab mount, finished it. Built a front end support to hang the front sheet metal on. I think it will work well.

    Front motor mounts are fabricated and welded in. Worked on the transmission cross member today. Ordered some SS Headers off ebay today. Need them to get the steering shaft built. Going to the boneyard tomorrow morning to look for a late 80's Buick with a front tilt hood. Also going to look for a SBC serpentine brackets, and maybe a drive shaft.

    Default 1953 Studebaker Couple into a fleetside pickup!! #20

    Just got back to working on the Studebaker. Had ANOTHER bot with kidney stones! I really hate that! Anyways got about half the trans crossmember done. Will finish it up tomorrow. I will clean it up when I finish building it. The diagonal is too long and I will cut it off when the whole thing is complete. I'm using 2"x1"x3/16 wall rectangular tubing to build it.
