Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

thanks Dale!
even though i personally think they look ugly, went with stock pillars this time
have been thinking along these lines for a motor. only thing that bugs me, it's not a very "symmetrical" looking set-up, looks a little lop-sided to me...
maybe a little overkill for a 4by..? either way, the plan is to bling the six up a bit

did have a big set back on the int. i'm guessing i must have accidently knocked my bag of int parts off the bench into my garbage can, cause i have ripped my room apart 2wice, and found nothing, and these are'nt small parts...
i tried to scab the '66's floor pan, seat and door panels onto the '60's, but as you can see, it looks like s**t, nothing matches at all, not even the seat pattern...

here's what the rest of it looks like. a lot of the '66 truck tooling here. chrome rack is lifted right from the pickups. like the 2 piece barn doors. decals are'nt bad either, dont have to print up gauge decals for it

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

That's a shame about the interior. But the Suburban looks really cool.

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

ya, ripped my room apart again, pretty sure it's gone. may take some time, but i will figure out something...
have'nt got a lot on the sub done. still waiting for tires and stuff, and i been prepping for our holidays next week...
found a really, really old can of paint in the shop, thinking this is the oldest can i have found so far, googled the label, from the mid to late '80's i think....
been fighting with it last few days, having a heck of a time making it work, wont spray worth a darn, really lumpy (?) it acts like old paint, but i'm persistant and am trying to make it work, cause i'm really digging the color
been trying to get it to flow, getting there, test piece

took a chance and sprayed the dash and seats with it, also hit the seats with some Dull-cote so they were'nt so shiny..pretty plain inside now that it's a panel. thinking adding some wood in there. the low-backs are from the parts box

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

ya, hoping it does go on nice....(fingers crossed..)
but not for a bit. was supposed to leave on holidays today, but some major accidents, forest fires and other stuff has shut down a bunch of the roads heading out. so we postponed leaving 'till tomorrow.
and got a little bit more done today...like i said, being a panel now, it was kinda plain, so....a little bit of basswood
