Scratch the patching up the paint... this thing had 4 seperate colors on it. Paint would have been too thick.

 

So we went to bare metal on every thing.

Well, Newton's YJ did move on... so I guess I don't really get too attached, just keep some longer than others.

We're still working on this.  I have the new rear 9" where I want it, with brakes on it.  Rear 335 tire looks good.

Onto the front now, with new control arms, 15" brakes  and a new Corvette bolt pattern. Price will increasse.

...and stretch it about 8" to get the wheels centered in the wheel wells.

Like this?

 

It's ride height.

15" front brakes are in. We also did a rack and pinion steering set up on it. I hate steering boxes for racing. 26114125_1372178356226185_7198915453991221309_n.jpg

 

This truck will eat most sports cars on the race track. Caster and Camber is exactly where you want it to plant the tires. :) Ride Tech triple adjustable coil overs on all four corners, too.

Needs the dual headlight grill, for my taste. Nice job.

It's a Chevy, not a GMC. The GMC grill is from my Grand dad's truck... my father sold it after we restored it. That is the one I was really connected to.

Love this truck ! Good luck with the sale!

 

Thanks man, it's getting there. Bare engine bay right now... wondering if I should shave the firewall.  If I did that, I'd have to install vintage air.

After all the work you've put in, vintage air is an easy step to make it that much more over the top

Yah, it's only money right?

 

Heh, I need to be able to sell this thing at the end of all of it. 


(or keep it)

The type of buyer that will spend the $$ on a build like that will be a serious one,and having that "jewelry box" look when you open the hood will show the effort and dedication you've put into all aspects of the truck, the show and the go

 

IMO...., maybe I watch pregnant dogin' rides too much.

Yeah, just ordered the sheet metal to shave it.

 

And the vintage air kit, center console, bucket seats, the American auto wiring harness and the Dakota Digital guages.

It's a sickness, when I had disposable income I had a bunch of muscle cars, same thing you think about something and all of a sudden the brown Santa is delivering parts
