got the luv rolled into the garage. figure id start a little project thread n post my progress. going to be slow going for a lil while. for now, im just gonna pull the motor/tranny, clean up engine bay, fix rust on the floor, and few other little things. by then i should have my blazer paid off and then ill start buying parts for v8. i told myself is wouldnt do any work to the truck till my blazer is paid off, so im gonna stick to it!

so far only have radiator out, wiring removed/cut, other misc. lines n stuff removed and out of the way. im about to go back out n remove driveshaft, exhaust, and everything else so the motor n tranny is ready to be pulled.

took windshield out and started repairing rust.. my first time doing anything like this.. so hopefully itll turn out nice. ill grind down the welds tomorrow then add in the last piece. (the piece sitting there isnt going to be used, i just sat it in there.) i will make 2 of the same pieces and hopefully have it look factory :haha:

well i found another luv truck. going to look at it tomorrow. only wants 200 for it. he says it has the typical rust, but the bedsides are in good shape and the bedfloor has holes in it from being cut. has a dana rear end under it as well. so as long as the bedsides are actually in good shape, im going to buy it for the bed and rear end. maybe cut the passenger rocker off if its in good shape, and whatever else i need/can sell for moneys. then put my old parts on it and send it off to the junk yard.

After looking over the good looking work your dad is doing may i suggest that you use the pre 87 Trooper rotors as they are vented and half the weight of the stock Luv rotors.I your dad can make these hubs at a good market price and using the Trooper rotors i would venture to say you have a way to off set some of your build costs and i even might be interested to.
