Going Green. . .Sort Of - Building a Body Cart (WEB EXCLUSIVE)

Building a body cart on the cheap!

It's no secret that vintage Chevy trucks are seriously the best looking of all the US made trucks. If you don't believe just ask me. Since the age of 15 I have wanted an Apache Fleetside truck. Since we don't cover Chevy trucks in Super Chevy magazine, I will post the progress of this '58 Fleetside on the website. After removing the cab from the frame last weekend, and setting the cab and bed on jackstands, it was time to build a body cart for the cab. I wanted a mobile body cart that I can wheel the cab around on and make more room in the incredibly cramped two-car garage.

A buddy of mine had a pile of steel beams sitting outside his shop. They used to be warehouse shelving, but he said they were old and flimsy when it came to holding lots of weighted pallets. I asked him if I could have a few, because I knew just what I could do with them.
