Square Bodied Restoration Threads

Since our trucks are old and many are doing restorations, I thought we should have a link to the different threads.
If you have a thread or find one in your searches, link it here.

If you create additional threads on your project, post an update or PM a staff member and we'll edit it into your post to keep things organized.

We have enough sticky's, so I think we should just link this right into the FAQ's

Heres mine:

Body removal, frame restoration

Awesome thread, I was wondering what you were talking about in the other post.

Question though are links limited to just diesel place? or can links to other sites be included?

links to other sites are allowed for technical stuff.

in other words yes

and if your project has lots of links, we'll just post them all the way mine is

Did Wellgeo do any kind of a thread? he sure restored the heck out of that truck.

And what about the poster that I can't remember his name? He made his truck into a dually, had quite a few pictures. Sweet looking green 1 ton. It wasn't really a resto thos since his truck wasn't too shabby before.
