This is a fame shot of the right front transition from the 3x6 front to the 2x6 center section! I opted not to go 3x6 all the way to save weight.

Re: 68c10/c6

Thanks AD! I'll post pics as I go. I'm trying to really use all the Vette parts as I can! With the exception of a few custom parts I want to be able to get parts from GM I mean they spent millions on R&D why reinvent the wheel!

Re: 68c10/c6

Nice job Jim! It's not easy finding a newer console to flow with the older dashes.

You are so right, had to do a lot of modifications to make it look like it was made this way. Sorry to take up your thread but here's a couple shots of the finished product...Jim

Re: 68c10/c6

Wow beautiful work Jim! I like how the console flows. Is the truck done? Thank you Karl my objective with my build is to use every factory part I can! I have the vin# to the donor Vette so if you need a part your local dealer have it! I'm hoping to be able to do more of these to offer for sale!

Re: 68c10/c6

That truck looks really solid. Was it?

Do you shorten the bed or find another one?

Re: 68c10/c6

Ya I prefer the buy the long beds & shorten them there's a ton of long beds here in California! I also have a guy here who has 40 plus 67-72 C10s and I horse trade with him a lot! He's got some nice patina long beds that I want to shorten. I like the old tin over the China stuff!

Size:  46.9 KBOk the console's mounted & the E-brakes mounted as well now it's time to mold it to the dash! I had to raise it 2 inches to clear the wiring harness which will run underneath.
