Re: Project Vitamin C-10

Allan, have you considered useing SS compression fittings rather than flare fittings?. They aren't cheap (and they are a bit more bulky) but they are WAY easier to work with if you want the lines to follow an exact path IMO. They are also more reliable. Here's a pic of a fuel delivery I made up for my intake with 3/8"SS and compression fittings. The little entry pipe is a temp. I will be making a complete hard line to the pump once it's all installed.

No I have not considered that option. You did a great job on your lines.

It's a shame I had to haul these parts off. I can't believe I couldn't even give them away.

I threw away 4 doors and still have a little more to throw away plus one more door. The rear sill wasn't in good shape if it makes you feel better.

sdailey brought his cab over and he cut out his trans hump. After my garage sale this weekend and mother-in-law visit from MT. Work begins on his cab. He will be doing most of it, I'll be here for moral support.

Re: Project Vitamin C-10

How many projects you have going??? My Son is about to bust, his truck is so close to being done but there are a few little details keeping us from finishing it now. How do you like your plasma cutter? I have been thinking about asking for one for Christmas. Looking forward to seeing more pictures of the trucks.

I'm trying to do a double flare on a steel line and here is the outcome, but first I ran a piece of hard line on the 55 from the fuel pump to carb and did pretty good making it go where I wanted. I'm practicing on the 55 before I cut loose on the 65.















Looks like I have some more practicing to do. I deburred the inside and chamfered the inside and outside. This was my second attempt. Maybe 3rd times a charm. The flare on the left is store bought if you couldn't tell.

I hate flaring took a few tries for me as well when I added the disk brakes to my 66. Thanksfully the guy at the parts house gave me an extra 2' section to practice on!

Got the 65 & 55 and a long honey do list. Ya'll are doing a great job on your sons truck. If you do alot of metal work the plasma is awesome.

Re: Project Vitamin C-10

My plasma cutter took a sh*t a couple of years ago. It needs a circuit board that cost about $500. Not worth fixing it even though it's a $3,200, 20 year old one from Snap-on. The newer ones are now much smaller, and I can get one for about $800. If I need one that bad I could use borrow my sons. When I had my business I used it all the time.

Re: Project Vitamin C-10

Finally getting back on it. Decided to work on the hood. I cut the problem areas out so the sand blaster can get to the inside of the corners.

The right corner was the worst of the two sides.





I'm holding a chunk of filler that was packed in the corner.





This is the Left side.





It only had pin holes. I will clean the rust and weld the holds and reinstall.





I'm going to use extra cowl side panels to cut out patches. The contour is already there. Since I couldn't give them away I figured why not put them to good use. They can also be used to repair door check strap damage.



I have an extra hood that isn't any good on the outside, but has a good inner structure. I'll cut patches out of it to repair the bad areas.

Re: Project Vitamin C-10

hey alan the pics of your hood got me thinking
i want to build my own fiberglass hood and use the inside steel bracing from the stock hood
i dont know if it would work but i think it would be better than a aftermarket one

I don't know alot about fiberglass, but I'm sure what ever you do would be better than what is on the market. Keep in mind the hood springs are designed for a heavy hood. I've seen people add links of chain to the spring to reduce the stress on the hood. There's got to be a better way than using links of chain.

Someone else has mentioned that type of brake line in this thread. To answer your question, no I haven't messed with them at all. I might try them someday. For this one I will be using SS. I might regret it. Thanks

Re: Project Vitamin C-10

I was just asking, cuz I'm getting all my brake lines for free, and it's the cunifer. I know Audi, Volvo, and some other builders use it. Here is a link from where I'm getting it from www.fedhillusa.com

Re: Project Vitamin C-10

Wow! It has taken me about a month of pretty regular reading to get to this point. Awesome build Alan!!! This should be a must read for anyone that is going to do a full frame off resto. It really goes to show that a project of this magnitude becomes part of your life and yet there is a lot of life going on around our builds and there isn't always time to work on our trucks. Also it's crazy that just reading these build threads makes me feel like I know a lot of you guys. It is so easy to get sucked into this site because it's more than just nuts and bolts in these threads, there's a lot of blood, sweat, and tears. Kudos to all of you and especially Alan for the great reading and all the valuable tips and information!
