Looks like a clean installation. Did you manage to avoid major kinks?

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

Today I got up early, lit the kerosene heater in the garage, and applied 2 coats of POR-15 and 2 top coats to a bunch of parts including rear axle, drive shaft, brake backing plates, shackles, spring hardware, etc. Also gave the same treatment to the spring mounts on the chassis. Assembly next week!!!

Got the rear cab support put in and cab corner tacked in place. Next is the rocker, then start on the driver side.

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

From yesterday, but I had the truck in the shop to figure out some wiring nightmares today. Here's "Black Cat" freshly washed. I'll have to wait to hand wash it until the weekend. Bought this truck last weekend, no rust other than the front cab mounts, a little bit on the driver floor, and the tailgate. '67 GMC 3/4 ton.

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

Tore out the front suspension and steering. Going to be replacing everything except the control arms and drag link. New parts started arriving last week. I think the item I am most excited about is the faster ratio steering box

Here is the video from this week. Not much to video since it was all disassembly. Will get a lot more interesting when I start putting the new parts on!

Hmmm. Maybe that '67 grille will fit mine without changing a bunch of trims parts around it.

That was a total photobomb. My wildass buddies were hanging across the isle when I decided to snap some pics of my truck last weekend at Carlisle. Crazy Hanson saw the flas and was over in a flash. I knew he was there as I aimed and feared he was going down farther than that. Thank GAWD he didn't

I bet it is. This was at Spring Carlisle but if you said it was Winter Carlisle on Thursday or that night I would've believed you. 45 for the high with rain sideways between a few glances at the sun, wind, snow blowing, and 22 degrees that next morning! That aluminum cap was an ice box.

Your sure got a good one. I'm very jealous. Never seen 69-72 grille surround used with a 67/68 hood before. Didn't think it could work.

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

Are you guys that are dropping in engines removing the hoods. I am going to remove and replace my engine this weekend and don't want to remove hood if I do not need to.

No way to get the engine out without removing the hood, so tape the locations as mentioned.

I googled colored window tint and I think it's coming from none other than Walmart! Tangerine was first to pop up. Show be close to the bubble windows. I want to frost out the ones I tint, too.

That's exactly what he is, a mountain man. He lives in a garage, too. That's Hanson, one of the bunch across the way at Spring Carlisle. The guy I share spots with is my older son's age and so are all of them. They wear me out! Buncha buck wild boys!
