Re: My 1954 Chevy 3100 project

That's amazing progress, especially working outside.

I was wondering if you could tell me what electric fan you used, looks like it fit the radiator really good.

You’re making me jealous with your progress. Would you like to come and work on my 54? My shop is larger than a pop can. LOL

Great work! I would drown if i worked outside here in OR during the winter. Are you "seasonally inspired" to work at light speed?

Sure! Yes itís horrible to work in the driveway, waiting a few years to build a pole barn if I have any money left after building this truck!

We have had Oregon and Seattle weather all year here. Itís been raining for what feels like everyday since March! Its cooling down here but itís nit stopping me. I commute all year round to work on a motorcycle even in the zero degree windchill temps so I can handle the cold, but the makeshift tent I have over it wonít handle any type of snow so Iím hoping to get this truck done and on the road by thanksgiving

Re: My 1954 Chevy 3100 project

Slowly made some progress this weekend, I got The entire front end complete along with the turn singals/ markers and headlights wired.

Re: My 1954 Chevy 3100 project

I also mounted / installed / plumbed the vintage air heater assy

I have the bed laid down on the frame where itís supposed to but am waiting for the bed pads to arrive before I attempt to secure it down. Also noticed that since the bed is on that the 18x9.5 rear wheels wonít fit without rear bed tubs so I ordered a set of 4Ē wheels tubs tonight to allow the room for the wide wheels.
