Did you end up selling that extra frame you had?

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Put a little work in today.

Redid some of the e-fan wiring and got it all loomed up and pretty



Finally replaced the original radiator mounts too





Think they were bad? Not sure why, but they basically turned to goo.

Also made some brackets for the top





Just some aluminum flat stock and the existing rubber bumpers. Hit them with a scotchbrite pad for that fancy brushed look. I just had to drill one hole in the core support for the right side. Simple, cheap, and did exactly what I needed them to do. Can't beat that!

It's definitely a big part of it. So so much better than the Chevy one. The rust and striping doesn't hurt either...

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Picked up some more air ride parts Sunday.




I'm probably only gonna run two of the tanks. Pretty sure they're 5 gal. Ten gallons will be more than enough. Not 100% positive I'm gonna run the horn, since it's like 3' long. But it was free. Two double pressure gauges for the bags, and a single one for the tank. Now all I really need is valves and hose, and fittings, and I can start getting this turd closer to the ground.


These parts actually come from the collection of the late, great Gimp. His sister has been going through all his truck stuff and needed help figuring out what everything was/was worth. A friend and I went Sunday and helped. It's kinda nice that in a way, he'll be contributing to my build.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Bought a pair of vent visors from my friend and installed them.





I really like how they look. Only issue is the double sided tape is way out of place on the front of both sides.





I tried peeling it off to reposition it, but this 3m shit is pretty much permenant, so no luck. I'm just gonna end up trying to trim the excess with a razor blade. Or just leave it. It'll collect dirt and dust and turn black eventually.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Have you thought about trying to get your other frame to the point of a rolling chassis and then you and a couple buddies could just swap your engine and body over outside over a weekend? Body and motor swaps go pretty quick if the other frame is already plumped and on all 4 wheels.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Yeah. That's basically the plan. I've just had very little ambition to do so. Working on cars all week in high humidity, 90+ degree weather leaves me with very little desire to do anything after work or on the weekends. Hopefully it'll start cooling down some in the next few weeks and I can start working on it. Enough to get it mobile at least, to get it out of the elements. Im still most likely gonna wait till I've got my own indoor work space to do the swap.

I just read this entire thread, and I must say, I can't wait for the next update. And I feel your pain on the frame rot, my 1999 Sonoma has some areas that I will eventually need to address.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Well, I'm definitely not using the fuel cell that came with the frame





The gasket was out of place, and after sitting outside for over a year, yeah...



Pump looks fine...



Gonna try to find one online the same dimensions as this one. Maybe aluminum, if it's not crazy expensive.

You could always have that one cleaned and coated. I know my local radiator shop also does gas tanks.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

That, I'm not sure of. I don't see why you couldn't use the blazer stuff as long as the lines are the same size. Fuel pressure is externally regulated. So unless I'm missing something I don't see why not.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Finally, FINALLY fixed my saggy door. I've replaced pins and bushings a couple times, but they never lasted very long, because the holes were elongated. So this afternoon I pulled the door off, laid some weld on the hinges, and drilled and filed the holes back to the proper size.





Welded



The top hole in the bottom hinge was by far the worst. Didn't take any pics though. At that point, I was just focused on getting it done.

Got them all ground down smooth, and shot some paint on it. Not that anyone will really see it, but I had a tiny bit of a spray can left over.



No lie, I stood there doing this for over a minute. And I wasn't even pushing it closed. That's just gravity. I wish I had taken a before video. You can kinda see where the door had been hitting the cab. Before, I had to lift up when I shut it or it would hit bad.

What size drill bit did you use? I have pins and bushings in my center console waiting. I need to weld and grind mine too. They are even worse than yours were lol.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Holy Jesus. You don't even have any bushings left! I forget what size bit I used. It was a small one. I only needed to use it on one hole that I welded too small and couldn't get the file through. Mostly I just used a 3/8" round file.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Yeah only my drivers side is like that. Passenger side still looks brand new haha. I'm just worried that after welding them I'm not going to know where to re drill them.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

My passenger side is still original with absolutely no wear.

I didn't weld the entire hole shut. I just figured out where it was worn, put a small bead of weld to build it up, then filed it down just enough to be able to press the bushing in. Basically, wherever the pin is contacting the hinge is where it's worn, and should be built back up, to bring the door back into position.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Yeah that makes sense. Do you want the bushing to be a tight fit? Like should you use a c clamp to press the bushing in?

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Yeah, there's a slight interference fit. I use a big pair of channel-locks, with a big socket on the back side to let it go all the way through. They're relatively fragile, so you don't want to go beating on them. Ask me how I know...

They should be press fit. I usually stick a screwdriver through the bushing and drive it in by hitting the handle with a hammer.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Replaced front shocks today. The stock replacements that have been in there since I dropped it were surprisingly not blown out. But, I got a free set of Belltech Street Performance shocks from a friend a couple years ago, that have just been collecting dust. Figured it was finally time.



Don't mind the overspray. He painted his frame with them installed. They only have maybe 20 feet of in and out of the garage wear on them. Basically new. Left side came out no problem. Right side, both speednuts broke and I ended up having to cut the heads off the bolts to get it out. Luckily I found replacement speednuts and bolts in my junkyard hoard of fasteners.

Such an improvement over the old shocks. Much more solid ride. Not all bouncy like it was.
