next hot rod
« on: November 24, 2020, 04:03:20 PM »
picked up another Van sunday.  2006 3500 6.0   with a 30k jasper trans

no start, but brakes and rolled, winched on trailer.  came with 3 extra mounted E rated tires/ wheels. 




drug in shop today.  PO claimed bad starter.  found locked AC pump and locked alternator.  with no belts, fired right up first crank, shifts and moves fine.   trans line spring a leak- so that go bipassed. 

started stripping today after some shop clean up.

I love it!  Love seeing your build threads.

Are you using the body from Gif for this one?

no thats the 52 project build thread.  that's already running and driving on a 2005 3/4 ton 4.8/4l80 chassis.   waiting on some door bits and window track from LMC truck- really only 1 or 2 nights on that one till its done.  this will be the next, and im actually working on another AWD van to pick up tomorrow hopefully.

some bonus tools found in this one, and also has a nice power inverter under the driver seat, and another good four 100$ cats on it.


a few things listed for part out tonight to grab some cash back possibly.

converter guy quoted the 4 converters at 140 a piece if i drop them off.  that pays for the van

sold 2 mounted erated tires (20% tread) for 80$ also today. 

probably load the shell tomorrow morning and do the scraps

shredder feed up to 200/GT   so 2300lb van shell came to 205$

4 converters dropped off at 145/piece so 580$
