Wow, he is doing an awesome job. If he really has never done this, you can't tell. It looks like he is an old pro at it...

Nope, he has no experience at all. But you are correct he is old.

Wow...I was just stressed out about welding some a angle iron on my frame...read this whole build...now I am going to sell the whole thing in pieces for nothing and start bird watching or maybe water colors? Thanks for sharing. I all ways dreamt about doing it "right" but never have. Motivation to learn! Ok so I'll be the first...why after all that you've been through...are you putting a gen1 small block in that? I know it awsome and I know it's kinda traditional but...guys with a 64forth your talent are making 1200 horses with junk yard pull outs and 1200 dollars worth of Chinese shi@. I just think you guys should go all the way and do the most extreme example of drive train in a rig so beautifull You have the budget and there are plenty of your acquaintances/friends who could help. Hell call scoggin dickey and "turn key "one.
Just had to be that guy on the internet who said something ...Sorry, in all honesty I am pretty sure you are what "we" all wish we could be. Amazing work!!!!! Can't wait for the next installments!!!

Big day. Greg and I wrestled that floor into place.

with the help of the rotisserie and some good planning we now have a new dance floor.

Tacked into place. we will be bolting it on to the chassis up on the fixture to finalize the rockers and get the front fenders and doors adjusted. Once we are satisfied with that we can pull it off and begin the actual body work. (I so dread that part of this build.)

Re: Two is easier then one 1965 GMC S/W/BB build

Sorry we have been off the air for so long.

We have been working, honest we have.

Plumbing begins and we needed some specialty line hangers to run the brake and fuel line along the inside face of the frame. The aftermarket left us hanging so I grabbed some aluminum and chucked it up in the mill and widdled out what we needed.

Same problem with the forward mounts under the core support. So the lathe saw some action and we made these. We will use a 3/16" Delrin isolator to get our finished height.

Using some 2 inch bulkhead fittings we penetrated the frame at each wheel and brought the brake lines inboard

Using steel braided flex lines we got the connection to the chassis/wheels.

Made some hard lines for the lower a-arms and some cute little uprights to keep everything nice and stiff.

bent up some stainless 3/16 hard line and began plumbing.

Re: Two is easier then one 1965 GMC S/W/BB build

This gets us to fuel lines. We will be running a in tank first gen F.I. General Motors pump for the old TBI systems. This truck has a carburetor so the 19 PSI pump needs to be regulated down to @6PSI. Holley builds a nice adjustable billet aluminum regulator and summit has a cute little 4 micron in line filter. We took all that and bent up a few yards of 3/8" hard line.

Re: Two is easier then one 1965 GMC S/W/BB build

Do you touch up the bare metal when you drill holes? With my project I wasn't sure whether to run all my lines and get everything done and then blow it all apart for paint or do as you did and get "most" of it done and then not worry about drilling the odd hole here or there.

Greg will be going back and repainting all the scars we are inflicting

We were also going to paint the fuel lines as they are not stainless and will rust, however we ain't doing that until we see rust start. (A little scotch brite and WD 40 should keep them new looking.

Greg has a talent for cleaning up the mess I tend to make. 99% of why our build looks nice is due to his attention to details.

Re: Two is easier then one 1965 GMC S/W/BB build

We are going to take a little detour on the build and do something that might garner a little attention.

We are going to rip the wiring out of the other 65 GMC and re-wire it with an American Auto Wire 20 circuit harness. we are also going to pull the bed off, widen and raise the wheel tubs as well as install our own c-notch and pan hard bar.

So here is a little You Tube of Greg's truck before we tear into mine. :thumbup:


Saying hello from the Multimedia Garage.

So I finally decided on a set of wheels and chose Coys C5's. I do like them a lot, updated old school look. We thew them on just to put a little bling on her before the cab comes back off to do the firewall.

Re: Two is easier then one 1965 GMC S/W/BB build

Been away for a bit but Greg and I have been working.

The new floor and rockers are welded in and we have an interference issue with the 4L80E transmission and the stock floor transmission hump. So we need to raise and re-contour for clearance.

simple really,

cut it and stick a block of wood on top of the transmission.

Re: Two is easier then one 1965 GMC S/W/BB build

So we need to pull the cab off the chassis and pull the chassis off the build table. Then mount the cab to the build table to start fabricating the fire wall.

lay out the panel out of heavy card stock

now the card is roughed so get the cab situated on the end of the table. we built mounts so it is square and level.


See.
