Hey yall... Well, i decided that i wanted a project truck, so i bought this little old s10
Its got 324,000 miles on it, but runs and drives like a new one. It just doesnt look that new, its been mauled by a bear (my best guess atleast)
run hard and put out in the rain:
And theres a dozen or so little rust holes ill have to fix here and there. Ive never welded anything this thin before, but ive got my weldpak
and im willing to try anything. Like welding up the tailgate for instance.
Im making this thing into a convertible, and planning on putting a v8 in it, and id really like the smooth look on the back of it. How would
one go about "shaving" the tailgate handle, welding it shut, and making it look like its meant to be??
And the bed rust and the bear mauling... How would i fix that?? Ive got a totaled donor truck with the good cab and door parts
(no bed tho), that i could saw out, and weld into the new truck, right? Or is that a bad idea? lol...
Im pretty clueless here, so, does anyone have any advice for me??
