OK now that Nate and I are Team G-503 instead of Team hummer Killer

It was a quick decision as team G-503 just sounds cooler anyway...LOL

We wanted to keep everyone up to date on the 1962 Ford M151 Desert Racer project.





The welding is now completed.

1/4 inch diamond plate steel plates run the side boards, are now the front floors as well as acting skid plates.

The front floors were just to rusted out to save them.

The rear of the Mutt also has the diamond plate but we decided not to go with the high corners. The rear quater panels are in great shape so we primed and painted them fluerecent orange.

The uni-body now converted to a body tub is painted glossy black with the before mentioned Bright orange on the rear quater panels and the back of the mutt except the diamond plate that is also glossy black.

The hood as everyone has seen is completed as is the grill with a Ford script emblem on it.

The diamond plate on the rear has holes drilled in it so we can place the pintle hook and the bumperettes back on.

Nate is nearly finished with his work on the Bronco II frame, so we can take both the frame and the uni body down to be Rhino lined.

Nice guy in Wichita Falls Texas is going to do the rhino liner spray for us for FREE!

Once that is done we will begin the body tub mounting on the frame.

Tell what you think of the work we have done so far and it is only going to get better as the power pack and wiring is coming up fast.

Bleddyn and Nate

Don't rhino line the frame or uni body, you will not be able to weld to the frame or check it for cracks. it also is a potential fire hazard.
