Re: just bought a 55 chevy 3100 ( first series)

oh i plan on it...and im coming out of the double phasing and going back to just morning classes...damb government wanted to take 2500 dollars from my loans for trying to graduate early...low blow if you ask me, you would think they would be happy to see someone using government money the right way and applying themselves...so i should have plenty of progress now...also, anyone know how i can go about replacing the floor in the cab? its rotted pretty bad...i see people on here using the bottom half of s-10

Re: just bought a 55 chevy 3100 ( first series)

Since money is tight I've just been buying rustolean spray cans it's the rust restorer...I was told it would do, I'm not going to make the truck pop in a flawless original way...I'm going to stay flat black, white wall the wheels and Paint the rims red to me that's a perfect hot rod...i want her to have her own soul and story if you can imagine what i mean...one day I'll build a nice v8 to throw in it with a good rear end. I was told ford9 inch...what would you suggest?

Re: just bought a 55 chevy 3100 ( first series)

I heard of a product called extense in a can that goes on clear but as it eats it turns black and dries.

I need to find something due to some start rust wanting to come thru primer.

Loooking good. My build is also gonna be a driver and nothing for best of show. Just remember, once a driver you can always pick at it to make it better as you go!.

Keep up the good work.

Brian

Re: just bought a 55 chevy 3100 ( first series)

Thats mostly a flat floor right?

Go to local sheet metal place and get a sheet of 14 gauge steel.

A cut off wheel or snips and go to town.

Re: just bought a 55 chevy 3100 ( first series)

I thought about that too lol just didn't know if I could pull it off myself, figured if I found a cab with the same bolt pattern I can just weld it on
