Re: 67 GMC super custom build

Got my rear 15" x 6" rims back from the shop. Reversed the centers. Now the wheel track will be the same front and rear.

Re: 67 GMC super custom build

I decided to use ssbc's disc brake kit A126-71. Here is how it installs. Uses the drum brake spindles and hubs. It's not bolted up tight here but this only took me 30 min per side to disassemble and reassemble. No rusty bolts though. That helps time.

Re: 67 GMC super custom build

I added a low washer fluid system. The light is right beside the knob. It will only come on when you are using the wipers or washers if the jar is low.

Re: 67 GMC super custom build

I am going to adapt wet arm wipers instead of in the cowl.

Re: 67 GMC super custom build

Got my converted oil bath air cleaner back today. Should work nice. Here are both oil and cartridge converted side by side. You will never know till you open it up.

Re: 67 GMC super custom build

I bought this Nos gm pickup box hand rail kit for my truck a while ago. Really not sure if these fit in on this build but they are era pieces and figured they are neat and rare to have even if I don't use them. May never find a Nos set again.

Re: 67 GMC super custom build

Got the steering g column painted yesterday. Was going to assemble next week but just realised I never ordered new column seals so I ordered some this morning on ebay. More time for paint to cure I guess.

Picked the rails up Friday and just sat them on the bedside to see how they look.

I think those bed rails actually fit your truck pretty good!

I painted the horn center so you can see the gmc lettering easier.

Re: 67 GMC super custom build

After I installed the signal seeking radio the washer pump was really tight in there ( as if they weren't with any radio and ac dash) and being how poorly they worked anyway I decided to make room and add a 1975 Vette washer pump. Much nicer and looks era. It will also constantly pump when the button is depressed as opposed to 12 intermittent sprays.

Re: 67 GMC super custom build

On of the 1st things I bought for the truck a long time ago and found them today. New repo style T3 headlights. Not sure if they still make these anymore.

Re: 67 GMC super custom build

Along with the wheels I got the rest of my small parts powder coated. All that's left are my inner fenders and rad support to powder. I want to fit them 1 more time before I do it. My chassis is now complete.

Re: 67 GMC super custom build

Hey, I recognize those sway bars... Looking good!

I missed the thread on what you did to your inner fenders. Did you have someone straighten them out or were they already that nice?

Re: 67 GMC super custom build

Yup those are the bars I got from you! The passenger side inner was Nos but had a few dents. The driver was the original but had some minor rust issues. Didn't want any filler so I could powdercoat them so James (nuke1) made em all perdy and shiny!
