Re: New trash truck

Update, put a blazer bumper on it, had to do some cutting on it to make it work and I will do a little body work on it down the road but it came out good. Did some work on the inside as well, its better but needs a little more work. I am just trying to get it looking ok before the show this weekend.

Re: New trash truck

I like the "murdered out" look... I see there is a vette wheel on the side of the building.. is it for the airhose?.. what cutting did you have to do for the blazer bumper?

That vette wheel is for my water hose at the house. It may not look like it but I have a full day on work in that bumper, I had to weld all the holes up then cut the ends of the bumper to make it fit better on the body. And thank man, I think I will bag it this coming fall..

Re: New trash truck

That last pic is sweet...those wheels really fit perfectly in the wells; the backspacing is dead-on. Did you have to run spacers?

And that blazer bumper is just right...looks so much better than a roll pan, IMHO.

Thanks..

No spacers, they are made to fit a Buick GN and the BS is just about the same. I did a lot of work to that back bumper, to make it look like that I had cut the ends and move them in, and welded all the bolt holes up.

Thanks again..
