      Mounted the body back on the frame yesterday evening and started working on lining the gaps up. I feel like these trucks had poorly fitted panels from the factory, most of the trucks I see have...

      Yeah, I like long tubes, especially on an engine like what's going in. Although the thought had crossed my mind to buy a set of mid or short headers. Unfortunately prices for big block headers is a...

      It's funny you say that, because I didn't think it was too terrible. :laugh:

      I hope the top half of the truck turns out as nice as the bottom half did. Not like I spent a whole ton of extra money...

      Got the engine in Monday night. Some of you may know that I am going with a big block in this truck. It's a 454 .030 over with a fairly aggressive cam, ported heads and roller rockers. The trans is a...

      I love that sea foam green color showing on the cowl. If I had a 67-68 I would definitely paint it that color, growing up my dad had a 67 that color and it's always been a favorite of mine.

      On both my truck and a friends '69 C10 the rubber line between the frame and the T fitting for the rear brakes at the axle had collapsed and prevented the rear brakes from working. Might be able to...

      Tuesday night I went ahead and stripped the interior bare. Most of it was already gutted but I went ahead and pulled the rest of the HVAC and the wiring harness. Also pulled all of the glass. To my...

      You're absolutely right. Honestly every bit of this could have been done in a weeks time if I'd taken off and devoted 8-9 hour days to it. Especially knowing everything that I know now. It's just...

      Modify. Not pro street, but I'd probably lower it a few inches and put some strombergs on the flathead V8. Otherwise stock though. :cool:

      Don't worry, I have severe automotive ADD though and will...

      Well, at 27 I've got my hands full of projects at the moment. I should probably be looking toward home ownership but right now I'm enjoying travelling at my leisure and working on my projects in my...

      No when I got the truck it had air shocks on the rear. I was just going to replace the rears and paint the fronts to match but it turned out to be like $10 difference to buy all four since the place...

      I haven't needed to pull the body off of any of the cars I've built. :laugh:

      With this truck though it seemed like a no brainer. The entire front end needed to be pulled apart to replace the core...

      Yeah, they're neat and easy as pie to work on. I also like that anything you can imagine for these trucks is readily available from any number of vendors. Half the time I work on stuff I find myself...

      Built the rear brake lines and installed them. I followed the contours of the original lines but ran the drivers side over top of the pumpkin instead of in front of the cover. I'm not sure if the...

      Nice:thumbup:

      I was going to run dumps in front of the rear axle on mine. Mainly because I can easily run the exhaust, but maybe I should run it out of the car to prevent drone. I had dumps right...

      I haven't really touched the truck since Thursday. I pressed the new lower ball joints and put the spindles back on and realized the upper control arm was still hitting the top of the spindle. The...

      Oh! And the body repair sections came in the other day. I had to leave work and go meet the delivery driver since they sent it freight in a semi and couldn't access my parents neighborhood. :laugh:...

      I probably could (and probably should) but they're $65 on eBay which is almost money well spent. I may still build one myself, still undecided.

      Also that cabby you built for your dad is awesome, I...
