it would be cool, but it's just not me. i like to keep the exterior pretty origional looking. only thing i shaved was the tailgate and bumper. i'm not one for overdoing it.
my notch i have now matches the origional bed lines but i might make it so it's removable.

Re: Project Redo My Old Backhalf










front still doesn't lay due to i still run my inner fenders. but it'll go soon.
figuring out the brackets on the axle was a bitch, but they are all tacked. tomorrow i'll finish welding them up, than try to figure my pinion.

Re: Project Redo My Old Backhalf

Yeah i know there are plenty of threads on here that will tell you how to set the pinion, if i remember correctly, all u need is an angle finder from the local hardware store and just set it up at +/- 5* at ride height.

Re: Project Redo My Old Backhalf

Great work man.. your welds look perfect! Digging that plate crossmember between the notch. Look forward to how you set up your bed. Such a shame to hide that work under there.

Re: Project Redo My Old Backhalf

Here's some updates

got my links back from powdercoat




it's called "black chrome"
i thought it would be blacker?
more of a charcoal gray, but i still think it looks really sweet.




got the mounts for my rear bed bolts on



all primered up




my axle is welded up, painted, bushings and grease fittings installed, and lsoh's rear disc's on. anybody else with these brakes? my brake hose is pressed against my housing pretty hard. wasn't sure if that was normal.



went a little overkill on the paint for the rearend. whole lot of buildup and runs. **** it, rust preventative right??

Re: Project Redo My Old Backhalf

it's directly behind the bumper so i don't think anything would splash on it. but i still may run an aluminum deflector. and my relay is mounted right under the headlight (you can see it) behind the crossbar of the grill.
