Re: 63 full frame build help!!!!

You sir, are an artist! Not my style, but very admirable and a true demonstration of skill! I do not believe that truck would make it to far one of these 'ol Blue Ridge Mountain back roads, but I am sure it'll cruise along fine on the prairie. Please keep the photo's coming!
Thanks!

Re: 63 full frame build help!!!!

A few pics of wiring and rust repair. the first pic is the engine fully wired, minus the coil packs aren't on. I used a fuse and relay from a 98 caravan. The repair panels i used for the headliner and front brow are from a 65 so i had to use the front corners from my original headliner panel.

Re: 63 full frame build help!!!!

I'm going to weld the headliner panel and front brow then spray a liner over the whole thing other than where the skin welds then dynamat over that. I want this truck to be enjoyable to drive. Also going to spry and add dynamat to the bottom of the skin and everywhere else I can reach.
