Re: 68 project

just a thought right now , I dont know if you are familiar with the 68 charger marker lights but they are a very small circle, and yes it is good to be making progress and working on it again

Re: 68 project

Haven't worked on this in 6 years... ready to get done with it, just ordered my lowering springs, my tank relocation kit is on the way and just bought an exhaust system for it. Ready to get this frame rolling and start rebuilding the 327

Re: 68 project

Glad to see you back after it!
Life can get in the way. My 67 and 68 have both been sitting around too long, hope to get the 67 going this year!

I'm wondering about what route you are taking on the 327? If it's a large journal block, a 383 deal would be easy!
Also glad to see you using old school engine. LS engines are awesome, but the oldies can be made to run awesome, also!

Re: 68 project

I hashed around the idea of an ls and all and just kept being tugged back to sticking with the oldie... Nothing like a thumping small block. I am not even sure what the 327 is, brought it home and its been stuck in the corner ever since.

Re: 68 project

Well not much progress unless you consider collecting parts. Have been trying to get what I need first then I can hit a good lick on it.

Rear mounted tank is here, new rear wheel wells have come in, got my guages my seat belts and visors, lowering springs have come in all my front suspension is here and ready to assemble on my frame. Bought a new exhaust system local (guy changed plans after he had it made) bad for him good for me.

Re: 68 project

Although I am itching to spend time on bolting parts to the frame I have to dicipline myself to know that I must take the time to do it thoroughly. I have been collecting parts for 6 years now and almost there with having the biggest part of what I need. So guys keep throwing up your unwanted items you have left so I can continue on and finish project 68 "BETTY" as my wife and I call her.

Re: 68 project

Well after watching and watching and numerous miles of driving I found what I think was the best candidate for a cab donor. Not but 1 hour from my home he had posted it on craigslist and I kept procrastinating on whether to even make the hour long trip to look at it but finally decided what the heck if nothing else it will be a scenic drive After crawling around under it and on my back on the floorboard and another week of contemplating I made the deal and brought her home. Today I started stripping her down to pull the cab and get the cab ready for the little bit of bodywork she needs. Here is the results after pulling the seat and mats out of her. To say the least I was well pleased with what I found. I believe I captured her from a life of rotting just in time.

Re: 68 project

Still rounding up parts but I have been sand blasting some small parts and prepping them and priming for paint, I figure a little progress is better than no progress.

After I return from Carlisle I plan to start bolting on the suspension and get some wheels back on this frame after 7 years of sitting on jack stands

Re: 68 project

It is so great to have a shop now to work on "Project 68 ". I actually made some progress tonight, got the windshield and rear window removed, then started on the rockers. Was able to get both rockers removed.

This is why GM parts are nice to have, note they are not even tacked in place .

Re: 68 project

Todays plan is to begin cutting out the inner rocker rust and kick panels, I am also going to have to repair the door pillars. I will be ordering a pair of pillars from Nsane today so I can keep this project on a roll.

Re: 68 project

Made some more headway tonight, cutout the rust in the cab corner and cutout the rust on the inner rocker support and outer floor. Getting everything fitted and then tack it in.

Re: 68 project

I am lucky enough to live up the street from this awesome build and get to stop by and see it from time to time when I pick up parts. Shop is AWESOME and so is Larry. Glad to know him and share the same hobby. He is way more advanced than I and have learned a lot from him.
