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

Last weekend I finish stripping three layers of the old paint off of my hood and front fenders. We then finished of fixing a couple of dents on the hood and one fender. Prepped and primed the hood and fenders yesterday. Today I stripped the grill. Oh ya and I picked up my new billet aluminum dash panel and glove box door from one of the forum members. Looks good with the new auto meter gauges I picked up aswell.

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

@vwnate1 no, I removed pieces individually because I needed to replace driver side outer fender. I have three days of cleaning so far and need at least one more before paint.I "rented" an engine hoist from my mechanic for the price of a case of beer.when I returned it to him he told me about a 350 with a hot cam, edlebrock performer intake, h.e.I. distributor, and a edlebrock 750 carb, which is what i was gonna do to mine.it's in a '78 nova. It runs and said I could have the motor for $600. I planned on spending at least that much on my current 350.so I gotta jump on it. Just waiting for uncle Sam to return the money he "borrowed" from me. Some pix of work so far:

Drove it to a friends Superbowl party. Spent most of the evening talking about trucks and watching commercials instead of the game.

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

Having a new windshield installed. Used the old stock stainless and a new (Precision Brand) seal and windshield without the shading across the top.

It went in like a breeze and no rust!!

Today was a good day!! (and, I didn't even use my aka...Ice Cube)

Changed oil and filter. Scrapped, sprayed and cleaned 40 years of road gunk while I was under there.

Yes , Sir .

I know it's looks like a dream truck (to me it is) but it's dangerously rusty .

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

Picked up new to me 350 s.b.c. RV cam, edlebrock performer rpm intake, h.e.I. dizzy, edlebrock carb not sure on c.f.m.s yet. Just about had a heart attack loading it onto lift gate and into the truck,almost rolled on us twice. Got it for $700 including the mechanic pulling it out Of the '78 nova for me. Time to go through it and check everything out From top to bottom. Had a mix up with an online order I placed for a '72 service manual, was gonna cost me $40. But I never received a confirmation or even a bill on my statement.called them up and told the guy the situation, he gave it to me for $25 flat including shipping! That's what I call customer service.
