Re: 'Wintergreen' 1969 GMC Build

Alright, new wheels mounted. Knock off 6 bolt corvette rallys complete with derby caps and trim rings. Looks great! tires are actually the ones I had on those modular wheels in previous photos, except the white lettering is out now. The date code on them is 1998, hah! Don't really want to be using them on the highway, but it gets the truck rolling. I was actually able to put this whole package together for less than the cost of the spacers that the 22s were gonna need.

Re: 'Wintergreen' 1969 GMC Build

At that ride height, that was definitely the way to go. I considered going this route after coming to the same realization with my transits, but ultimately chose to stick it out with those and move up my plans of lowering my truck. Right now my truck looks kinda odd, but I've photoshopped it lowered and I love the look, so the transits are staying. Are you hanging on to your transits for future plans, or sticking with the rallyes?

Sticking with the rallys for now. I put the transits up for sale locally, but I'm gonna be pretty sticky on the price, so who knows if they'll sell.

They are a great looking wheel on the right application, as I think yours will be.

Started installing the fuel filler. Apologies for the picture quality, I think the lense was fogged up with pocket sweat.

Re: 'Wintergreen' 1969 GMC Build

Then Started to get the wood bed ready for stain. Had to drill holes for mounting and attaching to the wheel wells. For the mounting holes, I designed some custom stainless offset washers with holes for a carriage bolt. I know, you can buy them online, but this was funner. Then had them laser cut at a local shop. I drilled the through holes first then measured the offset and added the counterbore so the washers sit flush. They will keep the bolt from turning and look great doing it.
Can't wait to get these boards stained and mounted in the truck! I think its gonna look amazing!
