Damon has a thread on his setup. I got jealous so I figured I'd start one on mine
Before scraping adhesive off. I know you guys have seen this already. I'm adding more.
After 8hrs of scraping
Just finished cutting the hole and framing it up for a door this Thursday.
Use a heat or steam gun to get the adhesive off. You're coming up in the world Matt. Good job.
Nice. We love our box trucks. What milage and cost? You do your own door?
Brake cleaner will be the only thing to get the adhesive off.
Nice truck, best of luck. You are gonna love that cab over.
Congrats Matt! You're going too fast.You need to be more like me and park it in your backyard for a few months while everyone on the internet makes fun of you.
Adhesive remover applied with ample dwell time will yield best results with least anount of effort and overall time.
I started using goof off and it was taking the paint off with the adhesive as well. I used a few other things and didn't like the outcome and found that wd40 did the best. I sprayed it on, loved that it stayed on and didn't evaporate immediately, let it dwell, and started scraping. There's just a tad left on it, and I'm gonna see if my wrapping company will let me get by with it. If not, I'm just gonna pay them extra to remove it themselves. I'm burned out on scraping
As for the door, I have a local welder machine dude that did all the cutting and remaking of the frame. There's a trailer company that builds enclosed trailers in a county next to mine that's gonna install the door this thursday.
Getting a little closer. I didn't get the floor sprayed on. I hacked it and went the $70route
If that is just latex paint on the floor, you will be sorry. I know, I made the mistake myself.
It smells like polyurethane. Did you get that blue gallon container at the auto parts store? And did you put it on a van metal or a wood floor like mine?
You will love having that ramp.
More pics! And don't make them thumbnails! Marty has bad vision.
Has anyone slammed on the breaks with the cab not lockef
Changing oil on this truck is super easy
Ryan has done it again!!! I love it. It's hard to decide which ones the best.
I like option 3.
I put a plywood floor over the planks. I used the liner paint from Harbor Freight which is holding up well. I put down the paint flecks that you buy at Home Depot for garage floors that turned out really well.
