Does not look bad, just some surface rust. Fun will begin when you begin to put it back together.

Wow!

Looks good, very happy for you.

Is he just going to do the frame? or the rest of the parts?

I'd suggest having the rear axle and springs done too.

I'll get him to blast the rear end. I'm not sure if I'm gonna use the springs again, they are quite stiff and pitted on the sides pretty good. Thinking the might be a little stiff for a hotrod truck?
