What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

I like reading what everyone did to their trucks every day. Since the original thread was closed. Why not a start a new one.
Finally installed cup holders. Cup holder came out of late 80, early 90 Chevy Truck. GM P/N 13455572

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

I: dreamed about it; planned things for it; showed people pictures of it; talked about it; wished I were driving it.

But for now it sits in the snow, waiting for me to get my current project out of the garage so I can start working on it again.

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

I let mine sit beside the garage, like it has for the last year, waiting for the day I start on it.

I know it's all about patina these days. And, I dig it, too.

But here's yours with a little less with that sweet new new bumper.
Just for grins.

And, oh, yeah....a few less "things" in the neighborhood.

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

Is this the thread we are suppose to be using now for WDYDTYTD? Because there seems to have been another thread started after the main one closed. Not sure if they want to have 2 of those threads for the same thing. Here is the other one; http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=611938

When I discovered the original tread was closed I searched if a new one had been started. Didn't find it, so I started this one. The Mods can decide which one to close.

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

Well, I picked up my frame from the powder coaters yesterday, so guess what I'll be doing this weekend!!!. Had trouble falling asleep last night cause I kept going over what I was going to do this weekend, must have went through the build in my head 10 times before I fell asleep. I'm exhausted from all the work I did in my sleep.

That combo looks great.

This type photoshopping could make a fun game in other threads.

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

I just thought about working on it. I'm out of town and will be for 3 more months, so when I get back home hopefully I will have the energy to get it running good.

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

I scored a tilt column out of a motorhome today at the new Pull A Part recking yard. It was a dog to get out, but it was well worth the $35 I paid for it!!!! And it is tight, and won't need any work..... just bolt it in.....

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

Well I'll be. Roughly 350 pages on the original thread and over half a million views and it's been locked.
Did somebody do something wrong over there or what? I miss a day or two on here and stuff happens and threads get lost and ...

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

Let's just hope they don't close this thread anytime soon, it looks to be off to a great start. I got to meet fellow board member ole dollor & see his great truck in person. Awesome truck & person! He showed up as I was finishing up on my tailgate panel redo. I can already hear the Cheyenne's purist hating me for what I did to this tailgate panel. I too was feeling a bit guilty about removing the wood grain vinyl that had been on there 45 years +. But I really needed this panel to cover up the bondo tailgate mess the PO had left me. And didn't feel like the wood grain would really match my tuck since it is not a Cheyenne model. So I stripped off the wood grain vinyl and painted the panel a flat black and put new letters on. Much better than spending hours chipping old bondo out of the tailgate. It will be much better just to cover it up.

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

front panel of my '67 bed was so far gone, I decided to replace it with 3/16 aluminum diamond plate. thought the Chevy bow tie cut out would be cool.
