Re: This one is getting done. v8 89 dime

Well. Got my order in finally. Only took 5 days to ship..... And didnt even get the right parts. I guess Ill make due with the smaller bushings I have (the other alternative was for me to send these back, and when they get them in, they will send me the right ones... Well im ready to get this 4 link together so I dont want to wait 12 days to get them back. Also they didnt even send me the rubber bushings that go in them. I was pretty frustrated as I could have my 4 link done tonight. oh well.

Re: This one is getting done. v8 89 dime

Re: This one is getting done. v8 89 dime

UPDATE! interior is at a buddies shop getting done. Were going all out with it. He is one of the best of the best in the south and is also doing interior work for Little Shop of Horrors 51 shoe box at the same time as mine. Everything in the interior will be custom and one of a kind. His idea is to win Best interior EVERY show I go to and Im happy with that haha. Also I been ordering more parts. i got alot of parts waiting to go on, but havent had much time to put them on. But its slowly but surely getting done. Look for it to be at Layd out 2013 finished or not

Re: This one is getting done. v8 89 dime

I can get some tomorrow. I got some trimming to do on one of the cross members for my compressor heads to clear, and I got to finish cutting out the tubs from underneath. Patrick left some over hang so I could make them fit my truck exactly the way I need. And thanks for the good words guys!

PICS
Got my dash out and took all my interior to the interior shop to get glassed and painted.


and some more pics I have of the bed from getting it perfect for paint.




I dont have any pics of it, but right now the tubs are stripped and Im going to sand and polish the metal and clear over them after i paint the rest of the inside to match the outside. Trying to think outside the box. And NEVER seen that done lol

Re: This one is getting done. v8 89 dime

The very back of the bed (where it looks unfinished on the inside) is getting some good treatment. Im looking for a tailgate with the raised "Chevrolet" in it so I can cut it out, and mold in back there and smooth it all out nice and neat.

Re: This one is getting done. v8 89 dime

They didnt stay on. I was just seeing what it would look like. Im torn between running staggered soft 8s (10" wide in the rear) or Billet Specialties Street lites. They both look good. My problem is I cant figure out the back spacing I need

Looks good man, glad your bringing the body line back, these trucks look much better with a body line. It looks like they didnt do a very good job shaving it in the first place.

Re: This one is getting done. v8 89 dime

Going this week to pick up my motor. I bought a high rise intake. But im going to get rid of it, It wont be tall enough like I want, so I guess it has to be a tunnel ram? I want to get the carb as high as possible. Im going to run a painted shot gun scoop and i want it at least half way up the windshield.

Re: This one is getting done. v8 89 dime

lol its getting done. Have had some personal problems keep it from moving like it has. But things are looking up! i worked out a deal where i had to do a little work...... And got a turbo kit in trade....... YAY me. should be dropped off sometime in the next couple of weeks. So a few things have changed. .

The body line has to come back into this truck. Its a feature of THIS truck and it needs it badly. Looks ugly without it. Also I have some pretty cool pics you guys will like. I have actually got alot done
