Starting a build thread

Hi Guys......I'm new to the site. I'd like to start a thread to show the progress of my 67. Is this the right forum to do this and can I move pictures from the gallery to my build thread ?

Either. From your computer is easier, but you can do it from the Gallery with just a few extra steps.

Go to the Gallery. Find the photo. Click it so the larger image comes up. Right click on it and select "copy image address". Then come to the forum and start your thread. Click the "insert image" icon (looks like this ) and paste in the image address you copied earlier.

Like I said, there are more steps, but it goes fairly quick once you've done it a few times.

Thanks for the warm welcome ! My tear down is complete at this point and my truck looks more like parts bin rather than a truck I will try to add a few pics in the order that I have taken it apart.
Here is some pics of the rust damage. The body is really bad ! The good news is this truck was well maintained . All the fluids were reasonably clean all the grease points were greased the engine ran well and had good compression

Here are some of the repairs I made to the frame. I used large washers to replace the metal around the body mounts. I also replaced the front spring towers and the frame metal behind the towers

Here are some pics of the rig I used to clean the inside of the frame. I got this idea from Matts garage on youtube . It's a cable with short lengths of chain attached with a length of PVC to keep the cable from twisting up and to guide it into the frame from each end. I used a 3/8 drill to spin it. This worked extremely well. When I finished I used my leaf blower to blowout all the debris
