Re: 67cheby DM 3.2 install, W/PB 4link, PB hood hinges

Have you decided if you are going to run front inner fenders? If so, what are you planning on using?

BTW, what tires are you running? Sizes?

Re: 67cheby DM 3.2 install, W/PB 4link, PB hood hinges

i bought some grant custom tubs with one side welded up, my plan is to weld them into the factory fenders where they will still bolt in ?? i will have to get it mocked up to see if it looks ok ,just trying to get it setting right before i know how to set up my inner fenders

Just modify the center off the floor where clearance will be an issue....

Re: Raising the bed floor 67cheby

that looks killer !! my problem is i am doing a wood bed, one crazy idea i had was do a smooth bed floor and step it like yours and then have a wrap done that looks like a wood bed floor, on the floor !1 i am sure if someone hasnt done this someone will now i think its a pretty cool idea, do you have a build page on this truck i want to see more pics !!

Ahhh... I thought you were going w/a flat OE type steel floor. I like your idea though w/the wrap! It's one of those things that only guys like us would understand 'why' it's cool.

Re: Raising the bed floor 67cheby

if you use some nicely flamed marineply and make some grooves in with a router put metal/brass/chromed strips in the grooves and screw them to the wood with small woodscrews it looks just like a normal wood bed you can even put it over the original metal floor and put a little angle iron on it near the rearhatch, when you clearcoat and polish it it looks like the floor of a home . it would make creating a step eazier too since the ply can support its own weight is one solid piece you can bevel and gleu together and doesnt sag like seperate planks would without support

Re: Raising the bed floor 67cheby

Thats gonna be a killer ride! Got some good ideas on the bed, too.. Can't wait to see it when done. I may even have to swing up to NWA to see it.. give me an excuse to visit some old friends, too (and make some new ones!)
