Re: Low Buck Build Threads Help or LBBTH

http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=727205 Ok so this one isn't a Chevy or a truck for that matter but this is pretty cool from a gear head standpoint. So check it out and all the other cool builds in the Alternate Tinkerings. It's a F@&d Festiva. It's different and low budget as well. Enjoy.

Thanks Rusty! Happy to share my lack of knowledge with everyone. I don't think I set out to do a low budget build, just to enjoy the journey by doing all the work myself. It has turned into a frugal build

Re: Low Buck Build Threads Help or LBBTH

It is a great thread Rusty. It forces us outside of our usual little corner of the forum. I love that you are pulling threads from all of the forum sections.

Re: Low Buck Build Threads Help or LBBTH

Inspiration comes from many places. With a board like this you can find so much and more. I really wish some of the sections would grow. The S10 and CK trucks seem to be really the only sub forums that seem to be slow growing. I troll constantly looking and I encourage others to do the same and add threads as they find them. Thanks again to all who support this thread.

Re: Low Buck Build Threads Help or LBBTH

Here's some low buck for ya. Started out with the need for a two into one so I could reuse the rear half of the existing exhaust in my build. I couldn't find one locally. So I grabbed about $40 worth of exhaust parts from the local shop and mig welded one together. Not pretty, but its darn functional and fits like a glove! The alternative was about $160 for a sbc 350 Y pipe collector. There were cheap ones I found from "Walker", but they didn't get very good reviews.

Re: Low Buck Build Threads Help or LBBTH

http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=745779 So here’s another going to be fun build by the great Joedoh. I enjoy his work and he pounds these rides out quick. He always has great tech and great at explaining things. Even you aren’t building a 41 it’s still worth your time to check it out. So go now.

Re: Low Buck Build Threads Help or LBBTH

Bought my 1970 3/4 ton in running condition, straight body, nice bumpers & grille. Not a bad truck at all, just needed a lot of clean up and paint.

Even though the truck ran fine, I decided to take it apart. Here it is after sitting for the first two years I had it.









You can see paint was a huge improvement.




Engine looks fine and a nice rebuild done by previous owner.




I think the best thing done on the truck has been my attention to detail.




Engine a couple years after I finished.




Interior.




Decided to take it to a cruise and car show.




Here at the car show of over 500 vehicles.



Won 3rd place in the 67-72 modified pick up category.


Not to bad for a budget build work truck.

Other than used parts I had, paint, fluids, etc... I bought the new instrument bezel, chrome A/C vents, and carpet.

Bob

Re: Low Buck Build Threads Help or LBBTH

I did a thread on this a while back and there wasn’t or didn’t seem to be any interest in it. But today is a different day. Our man kustombrad is working with several other fellas on a podcast project that’s super cool. If you have any desire for hot rods, kustoms and automotive art this is the place for you. https://roundsixpod.com/2017/12/14/r...nal-brush-off/ The website is roundsixpod.com. You can’t call yourself a gear head and not check this out. Brad is an exceptional artist and a super cool dude. The other guys are just as talented and way cool too. Take the time to check the website out, YouTube and Instagram as well. I really enjoy it and I really do feel it will get better. Enjoy

Re: Low Buck Build Threads Help or LBBTH

First off happy Memorial Day. I’d like to thank anyone who has and is serving in the Military. Thank you. This Memorial Day is an important one for sure for me. In July my stepson will be leaving for boot camp. I’m proud of him and pray he is safe. Thank you again to all of you.
