Re: Post Your 60-63 Body Style Chevy/GMC Trucks

^ I now know what my next truck is going to be

I love the early wrap around windshield, I love the GMC grilles and I love Panels/Suburbans, and I want to have a 4x4 for camping.

Re: Post Your 60-63 Body Style Chevy/GMC Trucks

They gave me a hood that had a really crappy mold. It didn't line up in any way and the construction was horrible. The top, rear of the hood where it meets the cowl panel was 3/4" high on one side and 7/8" on the other. Once brought down, The mold was so thin, light could be seen even with the blacked out underside. They did a crappy job of blocking it also. And they had used two different primers on the top because it appears that they noticed a particularly crappy section and attempted to fix it. Everytime we sanded it down and blew it off more pinholes appeared which had to be drilled/filled. It's a crappy job in all aspects and I expect that the hood used for the mold was atleast half rusted out. I'll never do business with them again. Check out my thread to see some pics of all of the screw ups and work that we put in.

Sounds like those jokers are related to each other! Brothers maybe! Yeah, my hood came in the same shape. I will post pics later. Looked like was used, or a reject from the QC line if they have one. Well I guess I will keep my bed and just make it look better. Not really happy with the mini tubs. We will see. I want the bed to look awsome. I'm going to have the wood done right and unique!

Re: Post Your 60-63 Body Style Chevy/GMC Trucks

Sounds like one of the best ideas I've heard. You could probably do some thinner metal in the rear. Roll pan instead of bumper, maybe pull out a cross sill or make them lighter. Weld in a flat medium gauge steel across the rear where the tailgate sits. Little things like that. Depends on what all you're wanting on it.

More of the shame!:
No I have not sprayed any primer on this hood!
I have not touched it at all! It has pitting on it as well!
Hood comes unpainted and unprepped with smooth gel coat finish!!!!!!!!!!!
My @$$ it does.........................
What you see is what I got!
