The Biederman dump body project is coming long. So far I have been able to secure a new PTO and adaptor to clear the emergency brake band, cleaned up and mounted the sub frame and hoist, sandblasted the body and we are now fabricating some replacement parts. When the floor was sandblasted it revealed some bad spots so we removed it along with the front panel which was badly dented. The tailgate had seen some amateur modifications so we are rebuilding that too. Fabrication should be completed next week. Painting may wait until spring but we are well on the way to completion. This body was a find being a 47 Galion body, correct for the truck. I've included a few shots of where we are. It's only money.

It's taken a while but I've finally located an appropriate dump box for the Biederman. I've chased this one for 4 years and finally gotten my hands on it. I have to bump out a few dents and add a cab guard but this is nearly identical to the one that washttp://forums.aths.org/Uploads/Images/cd34e346-c72e-4632-ba04-b4b5.jpg on the truck I'm recreating. Hope to get it complete in the coming year.

...So very nice to see her in all her completed state. I'm sure it will be a very, very long time before someone else does a National Standard Biederman.

...Congratulations on a fine restoration.

Nothing like a little incentive to get the job done. The hood is finished, painted and installed. We are going to Lexington. All that is left when I get back is the inserts above the running boards that close off the space below the cab. Pretty simple but we ran out of time. Next will be a body to complete the job. Hopefully will get started on that later this summer. See you all in Lex!

One step closer to Lexington. Fenders are done. Will we make it with the hood? Stay tuned.

Finishing up on the Biederman hood fabrications today.. That's what I told myself anyhow...




Getting the OEM hood hinge welded to the new hood side..









Factory version had spot welded angles on the inside to bolt side emblems to, we'll see if we can improve by eliminating a rust trap...









This should do..... Vise mounted jigsaw with optional pony clamp cruise control Don't try this at home..





























Beltline trim added.....Hey! it lines up with the cab!









Hood sides added.. and it may just make Lexington..

Thanks Swishy!







Tonight we did the wired edge on the Biederman truck's drivers hood side, so we did a couple videos of the process. We did a practice sample to make sure our adjustment on the folded flange length gave us a good wrap with a slight gap for paint..

This shows the basic process of closing the wrap, wasn't as pretty as it should have been, but hey, this is practice.

For the hood side, we used the tipping wheel in the Fasti swaging machine (bead roller) to add the flange. After running through the Lennox for adding the joggle, the panel was scrubbed with a warm dish soap and water mix using scotchbrite, then scuffed with 220 paper, then SPI epoxy added in the channel. After our 3/16 wire was laid in place, any remaining bare spots on the wire were also brushed with epoxy. The entire length was then closed as per the practice sample. We'll let that set a day or so and get the recycled hinge welded to the top.
