• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

Hey all, poh here... New to the site, new to IH's, but not new to vehicles.. I've built several hotrods, but decided rather than buy a new truck, I'd go ahead and build one.. I bought a 72 sii, a few years ago, just to set on the back burner.. Welp, I'm ready to get things in order, I bought a parts rig off of "vancetater" on here this past weekend, the yellow 78 he posted about earlier.
Anyhow I live in norcal ( quincy), I run a fab shop where we build ground support equipment, and specialty tools for p-3's, c-130's,f-16's, f-35's, and boeing 787's, so I am pretty confident , I can handle any of the fab work I might be doing, I just might need some tech advice later on
so thanks in advance, poh


What up poh. Pictures pictures pictures! We love pictures.

There is no better site for IH knowledge. Bar none. These dudes know IH. If you need anything just search the forum and if it isnt there just ask. Ill be happy to mislead you until someone else beats me back with a stick and corrects me

This link thing worked I hope, of course when I got it, it was just a tub, some doors, and some fenders, and a whole bunch of miscellaneous parts, but well worth the trip


New member
Thanks.. Just to clear it up, the pic posted is of the parts rig I got from vancetater, of course that is pre stripped, but I still made out, it was pretty much a rust free tub..:thumbsup:


Welcome aboard poh! You're definitely in the right place. Looks like you have a great rig to start on!!!
