Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

thanks Dale!
now comes the fun one...engine for the crew dually came from the '70 impala, but it had a 4-spd, so changed it to a turbo, altered the pan to look like a 700

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

do it Dale!
biggest & best money pit i ever started, lifting my crew....
all week at work, temps were in the hi 70's, low 80's, fryin' in the heat. come the weekend, 2 days of rain.......figures, but got some good bench time on the crew
bunch of box work. put a bulkhead on the front, cause the box on these kits never lines up with the cab

the 84 gmc is one of my fav kits, & not crazy about the revell truck kits, but revell does have some nicer parts. the wheel tubs are nicer, upper box is the stock amt, lower box is amt with revell wheel tubs instead. surprisingly the tubs were the exact same size, even though the revell is 1/24

not crazy about the amt tailgate either, no handle & i'm also converting this one to a chevy

revell tailgate, proper indent and a handle. had to narrow it, trim some off the bottom, and sand the body line down lower to match.....cause it's a 1/24 gate.....

fenders just were'nt looking right, checked them against my green dually from last yr, crap, also 1/24, so i narrowed them both ways

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

you know it, gots to have that visor
flattened out the floor in the tub (put 2 amt gmc's together & you will see....) fixed the trans tunnel so it looks more normal now, & got the frame stretched. unfortunately by the time i cut out one of the tanks, what was left was not saveable, wanted to do dual tanks (dual batts, dual exhaust, it is a dually...) mite figure something out still

Man, it's looking awesome.Great job as usual. Side note.....I started the new job today. I spent the day smelling beer and was anxious to get home to drink one. Bad part is we're doing 7 days a week until further notice...

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

Thanks, new job is very different than I'm used to but I'm enjoying it. I'm voting on the 60 stepper. The dually is looking great.

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

thanks Dale!
to me the hardest & most frikin' tedious thing was making a billet grille, then it never showed up in any pics soooo.....just because...

and i joined the unemployed club too Dale. after working with this guy for almost 30 yrs, had a disagreement monday. end of story there. super glad i've got an excellent reputation in the industry, first place i called, the place i was hoping to go to, was like yup, come on down. was weird driving a truck yesterday with different signs on it....was only unemployed one day, but it was not a good feeling....
got a couple things done on my unemployment day- just could'nt get into it, but did get some frame work done. the 4x4 frame is pretty much strait, and this 2wd one is not. cut out the trailing arm stuff & "a" arms

at first i was going to replace the front half of the frame, but i would lose the solid mounts for body to frame, and would have to cut & rework the inner fenders. so i cut the frame almost off the floor pan & straitened the rails. i like it better this way cause the frame rails were riding right down the edges of the box looking goofy. fill the gaps on the floor, add a few crossmembers and i think it will do

I'm definitely gonna keep my eye on this 60! My dad had a 60 stepside when I was in my teens. 283 with a 3 on the tree! Maybe scratch a step bumper for the rear.

I'm glad your unemployment was short. I really like the billet grill. Very nice work and a great detail. 60 is looking great.

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

thanks Dale, Dieselburb!
yeah, i'm glad it was too, 'specially after buying the wife's ring, some tires....
UNEMPLOYMENT SUCKS!! working sucks, but i'd rather have that...
and cant say i've ever seen a step on a stepper dieselburb (excepting the 88's up)
i do have a couple step bumpers in the stash, i'll haft to hold one up when i get the fenders back on, see what it looks like. now that you mention it, a step would prob look better on a 4x4 anyway
