Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

thanks! but it's not that hard, just take your time.
when your done you can look at it and say "ya, i built that"

finding time can be a hassle...between the crew and 3 puppies, i have'nt got a lot done on my Prowler...some leafs and axles, front jack and got the 2 long inside walls cut out...

lots of cutting and modifying, added a few other pieces, but i think it will work. got a few more cabinets to go in and have to make the table, benches and a rear bed. the loo will go beside the sink, trying to keep all the plumbing on one side.

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

Looks great to me.....puppies are a lot of fun though. My girlfriend is looking for a new pup since current dog is about to turn twelve. My 2 year old grandson was plugging his nose today. He was asked why he was plugging it and he said "smells like gog yit". ......lol

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

I know what you mean about not finding time. I think ive got the trucks to piece my plan together, but I'm so slow on cleaning the workbench of my other hobby (vintage chainsaws) to get started on it. I'm getting there though, I swear...

go for it Dale! as long as the senior dawg don't mind. they are fun (and messy) had my 3 idjits at the river a couple times lately, it's a blast, they love cruising around in the bush, everything is a new adventure for them.
is "gog yit" 2 yr old-ese for doggy? lol.
my son is almost 15 and has developed a total responsible attitude (finally!) and has really stepped up feeding, cleaning up, and walking the mutts...pretty sure he's hooked for life

here's some time consumed, fitting all these shelf's into a pantry, and i did find some 1/25 propane bottles online, but at $22 clams each....that's more than i got in the whole trailer...so, here's my rube bottles, like i said, made from plane bomber turrets, x-acto blade storage tubes and some scrap plastic. made them bigger than a 20 lb'er too, remember my dad having 40's on his trailer

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

well this has been a slow build...problem after problem.
after waiting a couple months, some of the interior parts i ordered from fleabay never showed up, ebay says it was a scammer seller...so i'm making my own junk instead.

then i tried to find some 1970's era "harvest gold" paint for the appliances...good luck with that...only found 1 place and they don't ship paint over the border....so i mixed up 3 or 4 colors to try make my own...
also painted the plastic to look like wood

and the tiny bit of decal paper i had is waaaay old. after 10 yrs or so it just does not want to work or stay together, plus i don't have pieces big enuff to do the stripes on the ext or the walls on the int.....waiting for some more to show up. did get a grey water tank in though

and my rottie puppy has developed a taste for styrene... (actually developed a taste for anything she can fit in her mouth...lol)
spent hrs making louvers for the front window shade....then Roxie got it...i was able to salvage some of the louvers, but nothing else, so i made another one and made it smaller due to not having all the louvers.
if you look close, there is still teeth marks in some louvers i need to fix...

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

also had no luck in finding that "Prowler yellow" for the outside either...
ended up decanting some John deere yellow and mixed in some white. it's not accurate, but i think it'll work once the stripes go on
