Re: My 1965 build thread

I got my CO today. That means I can move into the shop. I can't fully move in yet. I need to get the sheetrock up on the ceiling before I get all my stuff in there. I should get my power meter set tomorrow. Maybe I can start working on the trucks soon. It has taken almost 4 months to get to this point. It has been well worth it.

Re: My 1965 build thread

Looks good Alan. So when do I move in? I can only assume that the right bay is for my '69 right.

It could be. The problem is I already see limited space once I get all of my crap in there.

Re: My 1965 build thread

I wish I could of finished the shet rock. I left it open for water and cable and maybe another door in the future. Plans might change once I start working in it.

Today is the first day I could really do anything, I didn't have much time, but I did get the cab braced up so i can cut the floor etc.

Let me know if you think it is braced up enough.

Re: My 1965 build thread

Shop looks nice!
Good luck with the rust repair. I just finished mine about a month ago. It is well worth it in the end when you have no rust.

Re: My 1965 build thread

Hung door and fender for first time. The gaps need a little work but not bad for first fit. The floor and floor support are just tacked in place. I still have inner kick, A post and inner and outer rocker.

I had bids for a dried in turn key with no mechanics for about 28K. I contracted it myself and saved about 10K

Re: My 1965 build thread

I would cover up the insulation with something just screwed on that you can remove later, just so you are not breathing that stuff all the time.. I like the shop too.
