After much talking about BD'ing my truck with friends etc, my girl finally talked me into it. I have never done this before, but have done quite a bit of reading andhave been usind different threads from Wicked94, Redd, Ricky etc... to kind of grasp wtf i am doing.
The plan is traditional to the rockers. Then I will have to do something about the bed, and I need to figure out my hood.
And since she talked me into this, she is DW'ing with me we have been at it for a couple weekends now.
then we laid out the floor cuts. I cut anticipating laying the fillers back 1.5". But, I screwed up with the first cut on the sides. I set the cut too close to the sill, and cut right through the threaded fitting for the seatbelt bolt. So I will be moving those.
For the firewall, I have to move so much stuff around because of the V8, it is going to just be easier to rebuild the firewall. But I didnt hack the whole firewall out-I will section it out piece by piece, so I have a referenc of where GM had located stuff on the firewall.
I got the DS tub in place yesterday... cut most of the ds firewall out.
I am going to finish the fillers on the sides and then get to work on finishing the tubs and the firewall.
My biggest issue right now is making room for the distributor, and still keeping wipers.
Flattie- do you have any pics of how you rebuild the cab mounts?
small update... got the cab off and the firewall cut completley out. Moved the wiper motor over 3" so it would clear the valvcover. I got both tubs in now. I think I set them too far into the cab because I had to rebuild the gutters insided the cowl. I also have the PS of the firewall totally tacked in, but only the DS firewall for the brake master. I need to set the cab back on the frame and position the column so I can tack that in. Then I just have a bunch of welding to do....
