Default International L111 Binder Rat Build

:Okay guys, Here goes nothing......................

Picked up my 50 something international l122 on saturday. Its in great shape with minimal cancer. Im not using any of the tins ( hood, grill, front or rear fenders, side steps) so ill sell them to help fund the project.

The plan is to chop it, 7", and channel whatever i need to hid the frame. Looks only to be a couple inchs since its factory channeled already

I have a caddy 307 engine and trans setup for it but i just got a lead on a 454 setup last night. Might go that route

It looks like someone had started to do some work to it as all the parts on the bed are all the origional parts for the truck. Makes it easy since most of it was already removed.
Someone also removed alomost all the paint with a wire wheel and let it surface rust for me

I have all the tins as well as the bed removed and have the rear window cut down so far. Started getting my lines for the 7" chop lined out.

I am kicking at building my own frame (my first) i will do a heavy Z on the rear with a triangulated 4 link. I havnt decided what to do with the front yet. I want to bag it so my two options are a IFS setup with bags or reuse the solid axle and build a bag system inside a crossmember to drop the front. Im all ears for options. I know ill get ragged on for even thinking IFS



P.S. If anyone is interested in buying these tins, let me know.
I will be hauling them to a swap meet on sept 11th and anyone local has first dibs so i dont have to pay shipping. Anything left over will be up for grabs.
I can get detailed photos if needed.

The basic kit is for $595 plus shipping and includes:
A CNC cut and jig welded cross member, steel spring arms ( what hold the axle from moving left and right) upper shock mounts and 2 air bags.

The better kit has all that plus:
lower shock mounts, shocks, swivel perches for the shocks, and spring shackles for $855.

I could design and build my own but i sure like the idea of buying from someone thats done all the work, ya know, to give some credit.

I really like the crossmember idea as it would hide the air shocks well and its a cheaper setup then a mustang II setup plus air bags.

Well started chopping the top the other day. Looks like the rear window will be 4 inches tall, the side windows will be around 7 and the windsheild a little over 11 inches.




What do ya guys think?

I love Binders, the L series is a great truck, (as its the R with an uglier grill)and you will have fun with it. I always reccomend to anyone with an L that they buy a copy of Michael Perry's "TRUCK, A LOVE STORY" as it is about building that truck, with a complete history of IHC thrown in for fun.

I like the front axle idea! Love those rear split windows.

So at current count, by the time the entire roof is tacked back together, it'll have 18 seperate pieces to make it all solid again. Quite a task.

The four main sections went back to their lower counterparts pretty dang well except the rear passenger side. Tat side isnt coperating very well. Oh well.



I kinda felt bad cutting up such a nice truck as it hardly had any cancer but on the plus side, i will be taking all the fenders, hood, grill and side steps to a very large local swap meet in hopes to ass on the good parts to someone who can use them on their build.
