Well, actually I'll just fix a few things first. I am going to start on it today so I thought a build thread was in order.
Plans are;
pull the 292 and freshen it up
reinstall with my T-5
cut it down to a short
lower it with F100 axles
will install the tires & wheels from the 62 (they need to not just be sitting there)
repaint it - no not beige
I'll will eventually do more to it but this is the list for this year. I plan to drive this truck to SS.
Here is the purchase announcement thread rather than reposting it all here.

If it is not too much trouble i would like to see some pics of the engine mounts.I am putting a y-block in my uni and plan to use car mount as opposed to the truck mounts.With the aod i am using i am worried that there will be too long of a span between mounts.Afraid it will put too much stress on bell housing area.

There are pics of the mounts in my photobucket.
Got some work done this weekend;
I adjusted the shifter linkage yesterday - it wouldn't go into 2nd consistently. That turned out to be be a waste of time the tranny is toast. I already knew it needed rebuilt cause the 1st gear sincros are gone - wasn't going to leave it in anyway.
I put some leftover from a parts truck insulators under the cab mounts to get the cab sitting right - I used stainless bolts this time.
Today I worked on the floor - the mat as cool as it was turned out to be pretty much trash so I just cut it out.
I cleaned up the passenger side first and painted it with POR 15, it's getting covered with carpet so the UV issue is - a non issue. The floor had some pretty substantial pitting but only 1 spot weld on the cab mount and the flange that attaches to the kick panel were corrupted enough to need repair - I just welded them back up with some .035 flux core. I didn't get too anal cleaning the up because they will be covered with carpet anyway.
Now for a few pics.

This is what it looked like under the mat - it was soaking wet from condensation.

It will need a little work on the tunnel here.

After a good coat of POR.

Drivers side was even better. I'll have to drill out 1 screw to get that piece of trim off but at least the mat is gone so it isn't holding moisture anymore.

Cleaned up the drivers side floor today after work.
Considering the condition of this truck it would be shame not to weld a small patch here. This right under the brake pedal where the mat was worn through.
Patch will be about the size of a business card is all. I am out of .030 flux core so I'll have to pick up a roll to do it. Seeings as I can't get it perfectly clean without digging into the metal more than I want to and and I can't get to the back side flux core is the way to go here.
I'll be a really lucky guy if this is the worst patch I ever do again, lol.

I examined it REAL close underneath - pretty much knew what I would find.
Tonight is a secondary project to this truck - swapping the fuel pump in the van so I can put the 64 in the drive. If I don't have to keep it movable so I can put it back across the street I can get alot more done.
Supposed to get a couple days of rain - I'll start getting a few things together for it for the next round.
Still working on picking colors - have a few ideas but haven't settled on one.
I was originally going to be a semi flat black with some metallic custom paint (secret, lol), see alot of cars & trucks done like that anymore - it's still on the table though. I'll need to pick something before I fix the roof - I'll want to get the color around the windshield frame before the glass goes back in so I don't have to pull it again for paint.

Greg, just as a suggestion, why don't you just clean the area up good and put a layer of Bronze weld over the area, then coat with Por 15. It`s not a structural location!, Just saying!

i think what Alan is saying is just to take a torch and some brazing rod &
fill in the holes with brass...
then put the POR over the top and you wont even notice.

:D Pat you got it in one!, they are only small holes!, so cutting out the section some times is a bit of over kill!. I think a lot of pin holes can be over come this way, just watch the heat!

I don't have an Ox/Acetylene set up. Maybe could grab one of those small ones just for this though - I'll check into one.
I did get some cleaning & prepping done over the weekend. Got some paint I need ordered.
I also managed to pic the base color for the paint job. I have had the scheme in my head for awhile.
Been wet & rainy since Saturday so not much since then.
Next decent day the bottom of the cab starts getting POR.
I found a new similar Product at the paint store that is a much better price - $37 vs $50 a quart. If these guys carry it - it's good.

Greg. You should be able to get by with JB Weld or POR Puddy or something like that. Those are small holes.

I would use JB Weld and put a small peice of 22g steel over the wet JB Weld and and "Glue" it in place. Then you wouldn't need to worry about heat.

Then POR the floor.

That's a pretty good idea. I could also use it as a putty to fill some of the bigger pits. After the bottom is POR'd I should have it sealed real well then.

I'm envious of those that have welders and can use 'em but what I use on small stuff like that is 3M Structural adhesive And sometimes a sheetmetal patch if needed. Gotta clean up all the metal prep as usual but it works super fast and doesn't dry glass hard, but has a slight flex feel to it. Then, you can also grind and sand it, paint it. Someday I'll try to get pics of the process. :wink:
