Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Just spent a crapload of $$ to get the tranny fixed in the 96 Silverado (along with a transfer case seal, rear main seal and new U-joints) so I can drive it instead of using my 67 GMC as a daily driver.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Removed front and back glass for Upper cab paint this weekend, new glass to install and new door weatherstrips.
Minimal rust found which is always a plus.

When they instituted the ban on r12 we bought a 4 or 5 30lbs cylinders for real cheap just before the cut off date. The distributor wanted to get rid off it before he had to eat them. Still have 2 left and the open one. . I do have my uncles recovery system . So I reuse the old and just top off with new.

Vendor at the truck nationals was selling one pound disposable cans for 40$

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

In the process of disassembling the step side bed. Got all the old wood out and the fenders and steps off.

Bed sides probably usable as well as the sills. Bed front and rear cross sill will have to be replaced. Few more bolts and Iíll have it all apart. Will probably jump to cleaning up rear frame and do rear brake and suspension work before tackling stripping the bed for primer.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

I have my step bed nearly as disassembled as yours. I bought a new headboard, cross sills, corner angle strips and floor strips for mine along with all new hardware. My bed sides are in pretty good shape. I hope to blow mine apart before long and get all that done.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Boog,
Where did you order your bed parts? I’ll need angle strips as well. And all the bed wood and hardware as well but I’d like to get all the metal parts first.

Getting this apart for easy access to the rear frame to do brakes, springs, and all the usual stuff.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Got her off the trailer and started my plans for a build. Made a deal to have a 454 built for her. Started planning my drum to disc swap and in my mind decided to paint her bright red instead of the dark maroon color. Will build her with my 21 year old son, so I'm excited to get started.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

I started drilling out about a 1,000 spot welds on the donor lower cowl vent. Then I can drill out the one on my truck. Going to replace the rusted cowl.

I bought my metal from LMC. I haven't bought the wood yet. I'll probably cut my own again.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Started putting on the Wilwood disc brake kit on the rear end until I realized I had the wrong Moser axles.....so, I went ahead and put the front bumper on and got a brake pedal assembly coming from SpecialyRetail this week. Going back at it next weekend....

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Love that idea to get it up higher off the ground, might have to make my own!

Do they just stack up, or do you have them anchored together somehow?

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Hung the radiator support and bolted on the door and fender . Both OEM pieces everything lined up pretty well even the rocker with a few 5 pound sledgehammer plows on a 2x4 . Came to the cab corner . It was a cluster ###! . It was almost like it was for an extended cab . Had to cut it into 3 pizza slices just to get it to line up. 5 hours I would rather not repeat. Other side is getting a few small pieces.

If anyone is doing cab corners stay away from the CHL brand
