my 81 pick up build. Time Machine

so some of you know I bought a Toyota back in December. I guess I never got around to posting a build on it yet.

the day she came home.


few walk around pictures







so shes got some extremely bad floor rot. gonna have to cut the floor out and weld in some new metal. while im at it ill reinforsce the inner rockers as well and put in new cab mounts. I gotta replace two of the frame cab mounts as they are structurally done.


I went and inspected the frame and was rather saddened. found this on the LH side in front of the rear front leaf spring perch.



while lifted on the hoist I fit two fingers between the box and the cab

while rested o nthe ground its a finger and a half... so idk if I need to be concerned... is that to much frame flex?


while I was in college we rebuilt the old 22R.



deck plained and straightened


stock comapired to after market


the engine was bored .040 over already. so we bored it out and sleeved it back to STD. installed a small cam, replaced all the bearings and such.

this past weekend. June 15th 2013 I brought the truck to my shop and started working on it again. got the engine into her home.




any tips, advice, or helpful info is greatly welcome.

Tyler

Gonna pull the box off and access the extent of the rot. Got all the nuts and bolts off. So now I can pull the box off. I'm just going to build a flat deck. No need for a box on this unit for what I'm building.

If the rot is to bad I might have to either find a new frame, or build a rear portion. Time will tell.

Just started a new job, so things should go smoother on the build now

Looks kinda like a pressure switch. Are those actually the factory seats?

I'm not sure. It wasn't hooked up to anything. To be honest I don't know if they are our aren't. The guy who did me it was sketchy and I'm slowly discovering just how sketchy he was lol

Never seen that on the back of any Toyota seats.
I'm not even sure buckets were available in '81. Pretty sure those are transplants.
From what, no clue... maybe a boat? White definitely would not have been used.
