Re: Another 59 with LS

So today's goal was to mount fenders and hood and check gaps. Had to rework lower fender mounts. Went back together pretty well.

Interior panels. These actually hold the latches then this panel bolts to stock interior removable panel

Great work on the truck. I'm in the process of doing a swap and was curious what oil pan you ended up using? I have a MII IFS also, but my truck is bagged so I will definately need clearance. Thanks.

Re: Another 59 with LS

I've been working on the body but not the engine. I got a shallow gm pan I think it's for a camaro. Have not installed yet. I'll post when I get it installed In a few weeks

Re: Another 59 with LS

Awesome color choice, usually not a fan of dual color around small window cab but this color combo sets it off. Lots of work went into the shaved drip rail.
Congrats

Yep I asked for the panels. Made it much easier to fit the latches.

Yep after getting my 2002 Ls complete and running I got a deal on a 2014 LT from a low mileage truck. So got a new harness and switched to the LT. runs great. Still need new valve covers and some paint on the intake to dress it up.
