Re: 49 Chevy 3600 S10 Swap Short Bed Conversion

It is so cool to see the kids really get into the old trucks. I always say a young kid or a 90yr old will both be in awe every time they see an old car or truck down the road. My daughter is 4, luvs to get in the truck and "drive" taught her 1-3 gears and neutral. When she gets older I'll teach her 4,5 and Reverse!

Re: 49 Chevy 3600 S10 Swap Short Bed Conversion

No real updates to report. Family and work take priority and we have decided to finish a few projects around the house and sell it later this year. Our family of six is/has outgrown our current home. Progress will likely continue to be slow to non-existent for the next year or two as we sell/build a new home and shop. Keep up the nice work - I'll continue to tag along for the ride.

Looking back I did make a little progress to the shop. Installed a lift, built a portable base for the mill that I have yet to fire up and insulated a portion of the walls.

Re: 49 Chevy 3600 S10 Swap Short Bed Conversion

Started to remove the P/O's bondo work and paint to see what else might be hiding beneath - I need a larger air compressor. Gave up on the paint removal and decided to clay bar the 65 Buick. The kids really enjoyed helping. This was my first car purchased at age 15. Still only has 86,xxx miles on the original 225 V6 engine. It hasn't been plated since 2002.

Re: 49 Chevy 3600 S10 Swap Short Bed Conversion

Pretty awesome to see so many 47-55.1 Chevy and GMC trucks all under one roof. Even had a chance to meet and talk with a forum member. A lot of nice trucks were on display at the A.D. Nationals in Franklin, IN over the weekend.

99 - Nice work on the shirts. They looked great! I was able to talk with Brian for a couple of min and I agree, I would love to see the event grow in size especially since it is only 45 min away from home. This was my first time to attend as I usually make the trip down to Tennessee for the Rod Run which is the same weekend. Ran into Lower 50's and his son, super nice guy and what a long haul he made driving his truck to the show. Hope to see you there next year. I'm going to try and have one of mine at least road worthy to take to the show if I can ever wrap up the home remodel projects. Here are a few more pics from the show and the pair of matching plates I picked up for my 49.

Re: 49 Chevy 3600 S10 Swap Short Bed Conversion

I've been able to spend a little time here and there removing the paint/filler from the cab and fenders. I really like all the dark spots in the metal. The wire cup brush really gives a nice gloss appearance.

I think the same thing, my wire cup brushed door has been outside for a couple months in the rain and weather and hasnt rusted yet either.
