Re: Project Lemon Drop: anything but stock!

Kevin, have you came out with the plans for the tip and flip for the Blazer yet? Truck project is looking good. I feel sorry for you. It looks like somebody was hitting that cab with a sack of golfballs.

Re: Project Lemon Drop: anything but stock!

To be honest with you this cab did not need half the pins used but if you have to put one on you might as well get out those little waves as well. You can ether spend the time now and get the metal that much better and use almost no filler or spend it later with many skim coats of filler. I am not real big on sanding! I would say that less then half of those would have taken less than 3/16" to fill but now they will take block sanding and maybe 1/16" of a skim. Time well spent in my book.

Re: Project Lemon Drop: anything but stock!

Beautiful work as usual Kevin! I have a question for you though. When working the door gaps, you said you break out the tig rod. What exactly are you doing? Also was wondering if you use a mig or tig for your body work. Your welds are so nice. Thanks and keep us up on this one! Later, Jeff.

Re: Project Lemon Drop: anything but stock!

He is welding a tig rod around the door edges to close up his gaps. Finish welding solid and then bodyworking the area to make sure your gap is right.

Re: Project Lemon Drop: anything but stock!

If you need a little extra room, the center seat out of a 90's Dodge Dakota works real well. It's about 4 inches narrower than the Chevy seat. I was able to use the bracket from the Chevy center seat, just had to cut 4 inches out of the middle.

Re: Project Lemon Drop: anything but stock!

I just wanted to give an update. We have had a delay due to the search for seats. The other seats I bought (which look the same as these) were damaged.

On that note, those of you that are planning to purchase seats from a wrecker, be careful and do a thorough inspection of the seats. The first set I bought was involved in a heavy hit. The passenger seat back was bent to one side. Another sign is damage for stretching on the seat beats.

Anyway I spent about an hour cleaning these seats and applying some leather conditioner and they turned out nice. I may replace both leather seats bottoms. It should go nicely with the jump seat.

I'm sure Kevin will have some more fabrication updates soon. So stay tuned, project LEMON DROP continues

Re: Project Lemon Drop: anything but stock!

Seats look good and strait! No up dates as of yet but that could be due to the fact that for the last week and a half I have been in Germany and now we are in Switzerland for a week. I should be back the week of the 5th. I stole some time while the wife was in the shower to check the net but hook up time is very slow where we are. I will talk to you all later!

Re: Project Lemon Drop: anything but stock!

It is called "Extreme" somthing or other. SanLeandro paints recomended it when using PPG as a finish paint. It is a bare metal primer or can be used over filler and can be reduced for a sealer as well.

Re: Project Lemon Drop: anything but stock!

It's getting there. It had been 6 years and soon the truck will be one piece. I can't wait to get the chassis and bed over to your shop. I can't thankyou enough for the excellent effort you have put into my truck. I'm looking forward to the day my wife, daughter and I can go for a cruise.
