Got a picture? No rush ..
I will get pics tonight for you and no they are not the finned aluminum They were off my 72 350.

Re: Project Grande Slam: Coley's Hot Rod Shop

I think Dad may have found one locally but if not, .. I might talk to you about it. I just wouldn't want to pay $30 for shipping. Know what I mean? that might kill it.

thanks man ..

Re: Project Grande Slam: Coley's Hot Rod Shop

Hey - what's good to polish up the trim down the sides? Not mirror like polish, but just knock off about 20yrs of the oxidation, bird poop, etc. I'm thinking I might cut (2000?)and buff this truck to try to wake it up a little. It looks like single stage on it now, and who cares if I add a little patina .. right?

Re: Project Grande Slam: Coley's Hot Rod Shop

Chad the 295/45/20 fit in there nut like keith said they are way too tall when I had my black coys those are the tires I had in the rear. I would go with the gray center and the polished lip if it was my truck. Here is a pict of my truck with the 295-45-20


I really like this GMC

Re: Project Grande Slam: Coley's Hot Rod Shop

Dude, I kinda like it like that. What if I ran a 255/45/20 on the front to offset it? (the tire sidewall height) My GMC will be an occasional daily and weekend driver. I'm just not sure I want a 40 on the front for potholes etc. Just thought a 45 might be better for just general rim protection (?)

Was this a 6" drop in this picture?

Justin has 265/50 and 295/45 on his truck and it looks killer to me. (The black Cheyenne with red buckets) Humm ..

thanks for helping me though

Re: Project Grande Slam: Coley's Hot Rod Shop

Here's a restored '70 Chevy with "Gold" Custom Cloth interior.
This is also the same steering wheel,... that we were discussing.
(I think this one has been painted to match)

Re: Project Grande Slam: Coley's Hot Rod Shop

Dad and I have ben working on just detailing it out (driver quality) under the hood. the firewall cleaned up really well and I think it's the original paint. It has a small dime sized spot on the driver's side where it looks like maybe the hood hinge bumped it at one time or something ? but other than that it's really clean. Just painting and cleaning what we can get to without pulling the engine. Someone has put an HEI dist in it at one time and #1 is turned around toward the firewall. We're going to fix that on Friday.

Question - should I put an aluminum intake on it while I have the dizzy out? or just leave it stock? It has an Edelbrok 1406 (I think?) on it now. It runs really realy well like it is, plenty strong. It has a factory 4bl spread bore intake on it.. so it's not completely stock as it is. Would the aluminum intake add to it or take away from the look? I'm thinking just save my money for something else but it sure is tempting.


Keith - I really like the look of that 'Gold' interior. Mine is the vinyl version with the 69/70 scroll pattern but it is that same color. I really like that steering wheel with it too.

I noticed CPP has a big brake kit / 5lug swap I can get for about $1800 (Same as ECE without the big brakes) yout thoughts?

Dad is working on the passenger side valve cover now. cleaning / painting for a replacement where the original one had pin holes in it. Once that's on we can drive it. He's likely going to buy my S10 for his DD so it worked out pretty good for both of us.

Re: Project Grande Slam: Coley's Hot Rod Shop

Personally I noticed a nice bump in performance and was very happy in adding an edelbrok manifold to my 72 350. You can always paint it to look more factory. Since its gonna be a daily I would say lose about twenty pounds and put an aluminum manifold on and gain some pep.

Re: Project Grande Slam: Coley's Hot Rod Shop

The door panels in the pictures above are just like mine though. Just much cleaner. Mine are the originals so the bottoms are wrinkling up .. but ?? 43 yrs old usually means a wrinkle or two. I really like the color combo. I wish mine was slick black with the interior looking like that.

Re: Project Grande Slam: Coley's Hot Rod Shop

After .. Dad is still working on the plug wires and we might change to an aluminum intake, so no antifreeze in it yet.

Remember, it's just going to be a driver so I'm happy with this. I think it looks great.

OK Jonathan... are you trying to make an old man work even harder. I think when Chad buffs the paint I might try a little polishing compound under the hood. It is the original factory paint, and I think it will polish out.

Shawno - Send me a first class airline ticket out to California and I will put a little "Coley Magic" under your hood. I have never been any further west than Memphis, so that should be a fun trip!
