I had a moment the other day to get the last of my chassis parts broke down. I broke down the split rims and got them ready to sand blast. I laid out all of the pieces to make sure I had the best pieces to put it back together. Then I had a moment of realization that this is as far apart this truck can go,  And from here on it can only go back together. More sandblasting then primer, bondo and paint to come if I want to make it to Iowa in May

New parts.

I didn't intend on replacing the king pins but I found some on Ebay. And a Nos ignition switch which looks spot on. So my goals on the truck have been destroyed, But I will not stop. I have a new goal for May! So ATHS is holding there national convention in Des Moines, Iowa on may 25-27. My goal now is to get the chassis done to take it to this show. The other motivation I have was a Facebook challenge  from a international truck chapter in Australia, trying to get as many pre 1936 International's as possible together for the show. So with the weather warming up I have my work cut out for me to get this up and rolling. I also found an old ad for the B-3 I thought it would look good on a display for car shows. It gives a good general background for specs on the motor.
