Got this t70 from a friend, was painted red. I took it apart and started blasting every part.Removed diff and replaced bearings and seals.Axel bearings, relined brake shoes. turned drums, When sand blasting the frame i found that the bottom was all rotted out.The tubes had filled with water over the years and there was no way to repair then.So ended up making new tubes.They built them with BLACK PIPE . So off to hard ware store to get a 8 foot pipe. Set up in my bridgeport and drilled all the holes. set up on welding bench. blasted and painted.
Complete Restored T70

That sure does sound like a total rebuild. Frame and all. That's a lot of work.
Looking forward to seeing the final outcome.
Oh yeah, Welcome to GTT.
