Bootfair sucked today.

20p bowl.



Brand new ramp. £20.00 for mate Craig for his Messerschmidt three wheeler and bikes onto trailer.



Chevy T-Shirts, new £3.00 each
Crowbar fro Craig 50p
6 foot ruler £2.00 for a friend who collects measuring equipment



Not able to find any castors, so went to McDonalds for brekkie and a coffee till 09.00 and then to Tool Station for four casters at £12.50
Thankfully a painless purchase due to all the random other savings elsewhere.

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

After I packed the tools away and came in, it was a choice of which beer first.

In the end it was Bud as Dennis suggested it was the better option.



Along with crisps and some dried sausage, I had a good evening.





This mornings search for Casters for the new welding trolley at the two Bootfairs I go to, ended up empty handed, so I went to McDonalds and had a breakfast wrap and coffee, to kill time thenoff to,Tool Station to get some casters as I could not find the ones I knew I owned.



£12.49 for four nylon casters in 75mm size.



I made a 10mm ply floor for the trolley base and then tried it for size.



Then also decided to make a decent hook onto which to hang all the cables when not in use.

While looking for some spare hooks, I found this little box......

Guess what was inside....?



Decided this would be a good option as I like the gear visually.



And welded, bolted in place.




Next up would be the frame and top table where the grinders would live.

More in a while.

Thanks for looking in.

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

Dude, that is the way goes sometimes. I think everyone does that.
What I like even better is find something that I forgot I had and think I always wanted one of those.

At least you'r back in the shop making things happen and getting closer to truck stuff.

Agreed Vince.

I actually just laughed at myself when I found them.
I knew they existed, but had forgotten they had gone into a box on the shelf.
Was under the impression I had given them away.

And finding stuff is always good.

Just need to find the steering knuckle I lost in there a couple of years ago.

Thank you Bill,

I am pleased with the way it has evolved and come out.


Next up I cut and sectioned the top frame tubes by removing 300mm from it.



Then welded and ground it all back together.



Giving me a large potential table for grinders and accessories to be placed on.



I had been asked to feed back on this welder by a few people.

Well, after finishing my assembly, I called Neil of Rally Design to thank him for putting me onto this machine.

It makes welding a doddle, even for a numpty like me.

Penetration is great as is spread of the weld.




Once the top table frame was ready, with the steel supports welded in place the rest just took time.



Not that impressive turned over.



Wheel plates welded in and position of castors decided.



And job done.

I had to go feed Joy’s dog and cat as she is away for the weekend.

Also walked him.


Next up, paint frame, wood and make a top shelf for the trolley.




That’s all for now.

Looks good Rian it’s always helpful being able to move the welder around on wheels . Having a place to put the grinders will speed up the process when DOING THE TRUCK

Nice work on your welder cart. I too have been looking for an item that I know I have at least 2 of, but I am not buying another just yet. Moving sucks...

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

Long day in London


With the “New Improved Train Service” it now takes me an extra 30 minutes door to door on my original 2 hr commute and my return trip is three trains including a 20 minute wait for one. Into London is two or three trains too.

Service is a word used in Animal Husbandry too.......... go Google that.


Got home and the only solution was garage time.....

After.



Took an old 32/36 ring spanner, removed an inch in the length



Glued together.



Welded to the front of the frame, which fitted under my welding table after I had modified the wheel mountings to gain 25mm for it to roll in there, rather than raise the table.

Spanner is a handle, but also place to hang my grinders when they are not used.

Second King Dick spanner added to stop them pivoting under the table.





Done



Paint next.

Floors got Matt black.

Frame, Red of course.





Two coats of red, done by 8.30 pm



And a photo taken this morning.

Assembled.



Yes, I am very pleased with the result

Cheap tools.

Thank you all.



Evening Gents (Ladies)

I plan on getting started on the welding on my truck soon.

A few random holes will need fixing.....

Including the dash.

Any advice on what to look out for etc, in order to get the best possible job done, gratefully received.

The modern Radio/CD player seems to have been fitted by a mad Badger with a meat cleaver.
Note the edges...... WHY, Why Why can people not do stuff right or just leave it alone if they have no bloody clue?




So I opened the small parcel first, it was from Illinois, from Dan "WhippinSaw" and was the replacement panel for the radio opening in my trucks dash that had been put there by an Angry Badger on mind altering drugs.

Lovely bit of replacement metal to be welded in when I cut a huge hole in the dash. Thank you mate.



Speaker hole in drivers door to be closed too, with a donor panel from a 65door.




B pillars need to be repaired and welded up too.

Advice happily received.






Thank you in advance.


If you have a thread on cutting and welding a dash, please post links in here.


Look forward to this.

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

As always, these forums do come up with various options.

I also posted the same question on General section of this forum and got various replies from the guys.

Check this thread for replies.

http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=766012


I am sure that between myself, @johnnybravo and @samta22 we will get some progress made, with minimal tears.

Sat in a two day business meeting at Heathrow in a closed in hotel conference centre, alll I am doing is moving truck parts and tools around in my garage I’m my head though

Roll on Sunday, as Saturday will be spent with Joy.

And a BBQ afterward.

Bought an extra bottle of gas as well, in case the one I have runs out.

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

Hi Rian, not been on here for a week or two so just catching up, the weld trolley looks great, very professional👍

I hadn’t realised how bad your speaker and stereo holes were, clearly marked out in crayon and cut out with a (blunt) can opener.

My only advice would be to cut out all of the damage if your patches are big enough and take your time getting the fit right before you go near it with a welding torch. Time spent up front will save you much more time later ( and I hate sanding filler )

I always enjoy your thread but it’s great to see the truck on it again 👍

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

Maybe you can find someone to cut some panels out of a scrap cab when you come to the states later. That would be the easiest to fix those speaker holes.

The panel bond works great for some things, but since those areas are exposed I prefer the welding thing for the smoother look.

Only advice I know is very slow. Tack, wait, grind, wait..... do again.

Thanks Ian.

Very good to be back on the truck..

I feel ready to get back into it.

Had to stay away from it while my head and heart was screwed up. Possibly more than most realise.

Yes Bill, patient is what makes a job come out better than rushing.

I will try.

Don’t have time to find a set of panels in the USA before welding them in.

Needs more speed.




Random alert.

Been away at a sales conference, training and more corporate “stuff” at a hotel at Heathrow airport

One of the things today was to model some kids Play Doh to represent something that meant something to you.

This was actually something I did after the initial modelling assignment.

Representative of my 26 years in this industry..... and what I head when managers go on and on.

Managers, take note.



My model was a truck, filled with balloons in the rear, plus of course Roadkill Kitty under the wheel.





After leaving the meeting, the M25 was busy, but not total chaos, popped in to see Joymand Wyzz her dog, then down to Morrison’s to get some food and bread.

Well.....

When I stopped there was an abandoned shopping trolley with £1.00 in it, and when I left....... there was another abandoned trolley.

£2.00 in my pocket, or $3.00 scored.

Why would I say no to free cash?



Bought three cases of discounted Bud Light for Sunday, £4.40 saving per pack. So £13.20 saved.



Got the bread, then went to look for meat for Sunday’s BBQ and found the in-house butcher marking down short dated meat.

These people are crazy anal about the dates.

I bought Fillet steak, Pastrami Briskett and some pork chops......

Check the crazy price reductions.

Bought £38.00 worth of meat for less than £2.00









Brought the meat home and prepped it for the oven.

Extra garlic and olive oil, sealed in foil and into the oven for 6 hrs at 110’C




In the end, adding up the savings, I had saved £51.00 or about $75.00


I am looking forward to seeing what the final,result is.

Contemplating smoking one of these on a fire too.

Back in a bit.

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

One more quick update.

Welder trolley final assembly tonight, included the cable hook that I made yellow.



All done.



Though he died years ago, I think my dad would have approved as well.



Next time we see it, I may just be welding.

Thanks for checking in.

Bedtime soon as I have to get up at 01.00-ish to process the Briskett.

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

Rian, glad you like Bud Light. It seems that is about all that gets brought into our house. I have been known to pick up some Bud Light Platinum, my wife likes the 6% stuff. We will have to keep the Grill and Smokers Hot when you visit this Fall!

Ray, as a “non beer drinker” the Bud Lights go down real well.

Looking forward to September.




Had to do a small bit of welding for Mickey next door today, trolley meant welder got pushed all the way there and back.



Then cut grass etc, at one point saw a parcel had been propped up against the side gate that was open.

Turned out it was from Chris, the GrumpyNorthener.

He does some serious restorations, often having concourse winners too.

Some of his work.

And where today’s gift came from.

http://forum.retro-rides.org/thread/...e-find-content



Opened it to find a note,



And every item individually wrapped up.

Exactly what you expect from a guy who always gives the best to his customers.

Humbled for sure.



Plates to add to my collection, two from the Jowett rescue he recently did.

Thank you mate.



Back to that Briskett I cooked.

Crazy how well it came out.

Falls apart and increbly tasty.





Tomorrow @johnnybravo and @samta22 will get to try it.


Looking forward to a couple of early Bootfairs and then some good company as @CraigRK will be over too to return the plastic pallets Prozac took him last year.



It will be a good day.

Sam was busy with this today.



But his pile of special bits were waiting at his car.

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

Friday morning on the way to work I collected a new bottle of 5% Argon/CO2 mix gas for the welder.



Late afternoon on the way home, I popped into my favourite Turkish butcher for some T-Bone steaks kebabs and smoked sausages.



Saturday morning I did lots of yard work, till 12.30 then showered and went over to Joy’s place.

She offered to drive......

What a pleasure.

She knows all the back roads and short cuts.



First stop was Tool Station to get a spare (no 3) angle grinder.

£27.00 for 750 watt.



After this we went shopping, then walked up to the poor side of town, and both had a Turkish mixed grill and a coffee.

Rather good, leaving us stuffed.

Then back to her place to walk Wyzz.

I went home by 10.00 pm as I was knackered.

Awake at 04.00 on Sunday after 5hrs sleep was not ideal

Then off to Bootfairs by 06.15




Bought for £1.00 this collection box was last used in 1931.





Couple of Tiki salt n pepper shakers for MrTiki.




£2.00 coin, bought with another medallion. Wonder if it is still legal tender.




Then homeward as I was expecting the MoJo Crew of JohnnyBravo, Samta22 and CraigRK.

Craig was here by 09.00offloading plastic pallets and the MoJo Twins parked up just before 10.00 am.

Coffee, biccies and a good hour long chat, strategising and planning ensued.

Then the slow walk to the garage.


It was on.


18 months since Craig and I rebuilt the brakes on the truck,on the 19th December 2016

Crazy, yes.
