Re: Project: 1972 K30 Crew Cab Duramax

Yeah, that's the Chevelle. It's been nice weather lately, so I have been taking it into work often. Had it almost 20 years, since I was 14. She was my first vehicle.

Trevor, The truck is coming along nicely. Do you have a color combination in mind yet? Your Chevelle is looking good. Love the Black.

Re: Project: 1972 K30 Crew Cab Duramax

I finally broke down and bought my gauges. Expensive, but wanted the look of our era gauges. They were 12 weeks out from working on them. Figured I better get on the list. New Vintage USA.

Black exterior with all the Cheyenne Exterior trim, Bright Blue Houndstooth Bucket interior. I know the Houndstooth didn't get put on buckets, but I like the Houndstooth and I think it wears better than the scroll vinyl buckets. I am a big lover of different color combos. Get tired of all the blacks, tans, and grey interiors of today.

What do you use for your Cab mount frame brackets for the rear of the cab?
Truck mounts or Suburban?

That is one sweet machine! I've got some really fond memories of a 70 from a friends car back in high school. We missed an opportunity to buy a Cortez Silver 396 a few years back one of my buddies put together. Still a bucket list car for us..

Re: Project: 1972 K30 Crew Cab Duramax

Long old road with the inner roof, but have made a huge dent in it. Going to go with a 3M flexible foam or sound deadening foam between the layers which will also act as a glue.

Good looking build. When do you plan to build the frame?

I already started on the frame thatís under it now. Still havenít decided if I am going to splice in my longhorn frame yet or not to this one. As far as putting the engine in the frame, I am waiting to get my cab done before I move on to the drivetrain.

Still tacking on the inner roof. Finally dyed my Dana 60 Spicers. Should make the hubs pop.

Nice work! I painted my knobs on my lock outs and no one has ever said a word about it.

Re: Project: 1972 K30 Crew Cab Duramax

Finally got my gauge cluster done. Glad that one is off the checklist. Only a few more large parts left.

I like your plan with the Roof.
I have been watching your build.
I hope to start the cut on mine in a few months.

Re: Project: 1972 K30 Crew Cab Duramax

I really like your gauge cluster. It's probably the closest thing to a stock appearing one I've seen yet.

Re: Project: 1972 K30 Crew Cab Duramax

Thanks guys, they weren't cheap I know that, but I wanted the truck to still have the nostalgic look and feel when I got behind the wheel.
