Re: 91 Street Truck

I got all my rcas done. I decided to do a single channel rather then 2 channel per run.



I cut my ac duct rather than try I heat it. I'm going to make something out o sheetmetal to cover it up.







Mounting brackets out of sheetmetal

Re: 91 Street Truck

I got my exhaust back today! Should be able to get it in tonight, probably tomorrow though. Hopefully should be able to fire it up to! I also got some parts to the interior shop to get covered in. I could probably get all my interior panels ready for vinyl in a day, I've just been dragging my feet on this because the cold weather, I got real sick, and we just got a puppy.

Here's the exhaust

Re: 91 Street Truck

Hi I have a question about fabricating some rear pods for speakers? My cab doesn't have rear trim panels so I want to make something to put some 6x9 in and the mate and carpet it. I;m not familiar with working fiberglass any suggestions what would be the easiest way? I have some pic's if you'd like to see what I'm talking about.

If I were you I'd research fiberglassing. Hop on some forums n stuff. Glassing is a blast! Once you've got an idea just dive in. That's the only way to make it look like you want. You'll find easier ways to do it the more you mess with it.

Just my $.02

Re: 91 Street Truck

Oh so slow couldn't be more right. Research it and you'll find all your answers. By trim piece do you mean the lower b pillar panel, like the one in the corner? If so I'd recommend to go buy one of those and fit a speaker into it. With mdf, fiberglass, resin and the obvious tools you can create whatever your heart desires lol. Do you have a picture of where the panel is at?


I got my truck running today! Distributor was off one gear, after we got it straighted out it fired right up. We had a trans fluid leak due to me forgetting to snug the cooler lines, and a power steering leak. Both fixed after wrenching on them a little. No leaks is a great feeling lol. I have some small issues and wiring to clean up but nothing to big. I'll get a video up in a little bit.

Re: 91 Street Truck

I've gotten a little done on the old truck. Got it running and the bugs worked out. The exhaust leaks at the manifold to exhaust pipe. I think I might of fixed it today, I didn't try to start it. I took a crappy video of it running, with an exhaust leak. Still need to break it in, might do that tommorow.

Re: 91 Street Truck

I've gotten a little bit done, fixed the exhaust hangers, finished up the e brake cable, installed rear sway bar, filled diff with fluid, ordered the materials to make a tonneau, ordered flush mount tail LEDs, got speaker wire and 10w6. I'll get some pics up soon.

Re: 91 Street Truck

I bought a 8' x 6' peice of 20g sheetmetal, some 1x1 1/8" box tubing, and angle steel. It's going to be completely made of steel. I wanted to do a flush mount, but im worried about it sealing, so the top will hang over about 1/2" just so water can't go down into the bed as easy. I'll def post pictures as I progress.

[IMG]http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g287/dhracer369/57832049.jpg[/IMG

Started on my gate skin, I got the original removed, I need to blast the panel and get some paint on it before I put the new skin on.





I also got my 10w6, and my led tail lights should be here tomorrow.

Re: 91 Street Truck

I got my tail gate skin on, I haven't finished welding it up though.





I'm much happier with the stance now. I still have to install the lowering springs in the front.

Re: 91 Street Truck

Attempted a door panel last night. It layed down nice, but I must have tucked it too tight on the edges because it's lifting in the corners. That and I didn't let the glue set long enough before I laid the vinyl down.



It's sitting in my hot car right now. I'm hoping the heat will help work wrinkles out. Only problem is that it's keeping the glue soft.

Re: 91 Street Truck

Started on the other panel today. I'm going to do it in sections. Hopefully it will turn out better than the passenger side.



Hopefully my hinges come in the next few days.

Re: 91 Street Truck

Got the vinyl work just about done on the door panels. I'd like to finish them up in the am when I get off of work and get then to the upholster.



Not 100% happy with how they turned out.

Got the tonneau hinges, I had to gather up some materials to mount them. I'd like to try to get them fabed up tomorrow.

Re: 91 Street Truck

Did a little work to the tonneau.









Just tacked up for now. I'll trim the mounting plate once I'm sure it's where I want it. It looks kinda bulky but it should do the trick.

Re: 91 Street Truck

Yeah I'll prob do a cam lock, possibly 2 one on each side.

The hinges seem to work great. 40$ for both from a junk yard I found on car-part.com

Re: 91 Street Truck

I got the struts on the tonneau, and simulated the weight of the sheetmetal. I got the cam locks also. So hopefully next night I'm working on my truck I can get the tonneau ready for sheetmetal. I also got my transmission pan and power steering lines to stop leaking. Big relief there! Made a filler door for the gas door, got the roll pan on, and one tail light filler on.

Kind of off topic but I'm just about done with my house. Started in April, damn close now. I'm getting married in October and want to have the s10 and house done before the wedding. I've been working 16-18 hour days for months trying to get this shit done lol. Here's a before/after of the house.

Re: 91 Street Truck

Got the tail light buckets tacked in.





I got an issue, the gate has a curve to it, the fillers are flat. You can see the difference. I'm thinking ill pull the gate skin in so it's even with the lights

Re: 91 Street Truck

This suggestion might be a bit late, but maybe not. Trim done the vertical metal braces on the bed at the tailgate (the ones where the rubber tailgate bumper pads go.

When I built a flush mount tonneau out of wood for my old '87 longbox, I trimmed those braces down so I could extend the cover all the way to the front edge of the tailgate. I think I also removed the radius corners on the top of the bedsides at the tailgate to get a square corner, so the tonneau looks and fits better.

I don't have the truck anymore, but I built a similar cover using 1"x6" & 1"x3" wood with a 5/8" plywood cover, then skinned it with vinyl. It worked pretty good, and I always wanted to replace it with an aluminum built one. So I'm eagerly following this build to see how your steel one turns out .... both in looks and weight !!

Re: 91 Street Truck

I've thought about trimming those sections on the bed so the frame can go to the gate. It is kinda late for me now though. The cover is kinda heavy, and I'm having trouble with the struts. When I close the tonneau the struts want to push it towards the can or the gate depending on how I have them mounted. It will pretty much close all the way when I have them pushing towards the cab. The hinges I have, have a little play in them so that doesn't help. I'm always open to suggestions, this is a learning process for me.

Do you have any pictures of your tonneuas you made?

Re: 91 Street Truck

I'll see if I have any pics of the tonneau, but not likely. I built the truck in the early 1990's (before internet, digital cameras, cameras on cellphones ... or even cellphones !!).

I think I have a photo-album of the truck and I'll try to scan and post what I've got.
