Re: What Did You Do With Your Truck Today ?

Got the battery box mounted. New battery & cables tomorrow and it is ready to lite-r-up. Finished the wiring and installed speedo. Dolphin gauges in OEM instrument housing with the backs modified to hold them in

It's been a long trip putting this--48 GMC 3/4 ton

Onto this--78 C20 (350/400)

Re: What Did You Do With Your Truck Today ?

Ok guys I'm been doing a lot of reading here and this is my first post so here goes. I put gas in old blue, drove it to work and back while dreaming that one day it will be half as nice as the trucks y'all have!!! I have a 52 5 window that my dad passed tome last year when his back started acting up again. Nothing special just and old inline six with a 4 speed tied on hooked to nova rear. Still got the straight axel in the front. Lots of fun to drive but I want so much more for it. Maybe one day. Just have to say it's some awesome work and trucks on here and I've learned a lot. Thanks to all for sharing!

Drove our 59 Apache to the 40th Annual NASC Nationals at the weekend, held at Ipswich, England - lots of cool trucks to check out, and ideas to "borrow"

Re: What Did You Do With Your Truck Today ?

Thanks iowaboynca! It's not too bad. I drive it regularly lots of fun. I just want it to have some pep and stop when ya hit the brakes. Not my first oldie but hopefully I'll be able to make a nice driver and sport it up some. Lot of awesome trucks on here and great ideas too. Hopefully I can use some to come up w my own ride.

Re: What Did You Do With Your Truck Today ?

Put the driver door back on to check the alignment. Not perfect but good enough for me. Put on the passenger fender and it over lapped the bottom of the door by 1/2". Loosened up the radiator support and inner fender to firewall, gave it a good tug and got all but 1/8" out. Fiddled with it for another hour and could get it where in needs to be, but it "pops" back. I remember straightening up some of the front sheet metal from a previous accident and think I may have "fixed" the previous body guys solutions. Will look at the old demo pictures and see if I can come with a clue. Also need to get the hood on so I don't spend a bunch of time on the fenders and doors only to find the hood won't fit.
