    Default Aluminum dump

    First off thanks Miller for the tape! A customer brought by a project that may require its use ...WOW six broken crossmembers and about ten feet of worn-out floor.

    This one isn`t going too bad yet , but who knows? The only thing I could do without is the tar under the floor that has to be removed in order to get a satisfactory weld! Asphalt trucks are filthy underneath to say the least.

    Thanks Garth. The bright spot to this is that the new floor and crossmembers should weld up pretty well. It`s usually a challange to get origional crossmembers clean enough to weld up .

    Eight more hours, one more blister, one less grinder!
    The first day is such a drastic change it seems like all kinds of progress is being made, but then comes the slow grunt work with the grinder(may it rest in peace).

    Unhappy Grinders. R.I.P.

    Wheels , what brand of grinder are you using ? And is that an Ohio plate on that truck ? Dan
