Re: Zane's Ride

Hey everyone! Update: the project has been taken over by a different instructor! He has some great ideas: he has a transmission that will probably work; we talked about 2WD vs 4WD, and decided on 4WD; much more practical here in Alaska, and that would have been what Zane would want. The tires will be tall, narrow, with pretty aggressive tread, on wagon wheel rims; for paint, it will be flat finish, probably a washed out navy blue with maybe white accents. His goal is to get to a rolling chassis by the end of this school year (a goal we have set before, but have not yet been able to get to). And I will get some pics to post soon!

Re: Zane's Ride

Alright! I finally got back to the school and I have some pics! But first, news: we need bed sides. The ones we have are pretty beat up so the new instructor is going to check with a local company that fabricates metal tanks and stuff to see if they can stamp them out and he can mount them in the bed. One of the students has some doors that may work that he will donate; we have a transmission (yay!) We will need some front fenders so may have to order those since we have not been able to find any here in Fairbanks area. It is currently mocked up on a rolling chassis. Goal is to have body and frame done by the end of this school year and complete the project by the end of next year.

Re: Zane's Ride

The instructor called me to tell me that one of his students was in Oregon at a show, and found a step side truck bed in great shape! He and his dad are going to have it shipped to Alaska for the project! Very exciting.

Re: Zane's Ride

Sadly, it was a short bed, and we need a long bed stepside. But, we have some leads on others to look at, so I will keep you all posted!

Re: Zane's Ride

I would not have noticed that, but now that I look, it does seem upside down. No doubt the instructor will take care of that.
Anyway, I have reached out to him for updated pics before the end of the school year, so hopefully I will have some to post.
Hope you are all having a good Spring!

Re: Zane's Ride

Hello, everyone. Unfortunately, I did not hear back from the instructor before the end of the school year about updates and pics. I will get with him in August when school starts again, and go check in on the project. Hope you are all having a great summer!
