1988 k3500

Just bought a 1 owner 1988 Chevy 3500 with 8 foot conventional speedcaster plow with only 52K miles. And the kicker is the frame is clean and rust free and it just needed one cab corner that I replaced before painting it. I painted and lettered it myself....

Yes, cut off wheel, replacement cab corner and 3m structural adhesive. Cut old out, create a flange to meet up to and adhesive all 4 sides.... Done. Last one I did this way is still flawless 8 years and running

Wow, I figured it was a welding kinda thing. I would love after this winter to fix and paint up mine. Keep it going or at least looking good a while longer.
