Re: My 52 GMC Build

Thanks Guys.
So a week ago we went away for the weekend with the truck and trailer. On the way home Sunday the weather was hot, 96* and 110* with humidity. The truck temperature stayed right at 190*, so all my cooling modifications work great. Yay.

Re: My 52 GMC Build

Had a failure on one of my air ride switches. The one that controls the 2 rear bags, seems like the pivot pin broke on the toggle. Makes it just flop around and do nothing. I had to use both rear switches to lift the rear for 2 days till I could fix it. This is the inside of the switch box. 11,400 mi and counting.

Re: My 52 GMC Build

Boy O Boy, doing two burn outs side by side and getting them to match, that's some skill.

Bob, couldn't help myself, good burn out...Jim

Re: My 52 GMC Build

So my next 50's truck build is still a few years off but I sort of started getting pieces together.
This is my new daily driver '85 s10 that I will use the frame of. Also I bought a VW 1.9L TDI with a 5 speed that I will put into the s10 next summer, so the drive train will be all ready for the old truck in a few years. It will be 2wd.

Re: My 52 GMC Build

Is it as clean as it looks in the pics? Wow! It needs a 5.3l LS swap and a set of 5 spoke 3rd gen Camaro wheels!
