I'd like to see some more on the grafting in the new grill assembly that is pretty cool. Got any step by step pics and info?

awesome, nice to see some chrome parts, it's like everyone is afraid of chrome nowadays or something.

texasfunk 02-22-2011 12:15 AM

Re: My 1994.."never enough" build..
 
Thanks! The pullies and brackets are billet..the alternator and WP are chrome..I think the contrast will be nice with the block painted red..now all I'm missing is the oil Ian,valve covers..and oh..the 400 crank from the machine shop :D

Man, those are some huge honkin' ribbed pulleys - are you hiding a huffer somewhere?
Who's turning your crank? I have a couple of std/std ones if you need one. I may also have a pair of polished aluminum valve covers we didn't use on my son's truck a few years back, his roller rockers hit 'em.

:lol:
I wish there was!! I just like the look and got a great deal on the kit! And are the valve covers centerbolt? If so I'd be interested just PM me a price! :D and a friend of my dad is doing the crank..hinsleys machine shop on east 50th. And my dad was looking for another 400 crank. If ya got one PM me a price on that too and I'll let em kno!

Oh yes. Plan on the truck being silver on big billets! Have a huge sheet of thick billet I'm going to be machining some parts for the interior!

Re: My 1994.."never enough" build..
 
Getting there.looks good.With the front of the old trucks being pretty much flat I guess you are having to contour the old grille to mach the curves of the newer truck?

chevyndn 03-13-2011 03:27 PM

Re: My 1994.."never enough" build..
 
man its starting to come together!!! i cant wait to see it done! maybe ill try that on my 98 gmc...

texasfunk 03-13-2011 04:10 PM

Re: My 1994.."never enough" build..

Great look, sad thing is I almost bought the front clip from that burgandy dually at Charlotte Autofair a year ago for $650.00. It looked just the same as in the picture.

chevyndn 09-08-2011 09:25 PM

Re: My 1994.."never enough" build..

Re: My 1994.."never enough" build..
 
holy cow! i've had so much going on trying to start and run my side business i forgot i had a build thread! the original 94 is long gone! put a stock clip on and sold it! kept the 67 clip for a tahoe but it went through so many peopl trying to "build" me a frame (was a 4x4) that by the time i got it back it was trashed! so i junked it as well! the clip sat in my backyard for a year or so til one day i decided, i NEED to finish that, would be the perfect thing to showcase my shop, so i bought a nice little 91 swb and the past few months i have been going strong on it! started the tailgate taillight out of a 67 gate, and matching hood! was going to leave a flat hood but everyone i showed it to said it NEEDED the hood as well, have a ton of pics to upload so hope you guys enjoy! and i'll have more updates on it soon! bed slant next ;)
