Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

Thanks! Yeah, I mentioned before that I'm not a fan of green either. But, I'm one of those who would obsess over the paint code not matching. My buddy who is painting the truck promised me he would make it look nice, so I let him have at. It is turning out much better than I expected.

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

It's a good looking truck.
I'm selling 2 of my extra trucks to get the funds to get my prostreet done.
I want to make the Pontiac Heaven event..
Won't be painted but will have a pontiac mill.

Outstanding! I didn't realize dates have been set for Pontiac Heaven? Will it be at Wild Horse again?

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

I thought the Pontiac Heaven event was always in April. .
Maybe I should check.

It usually is, but I thought he was having trouble with securing dates. I know a lot of the local Pontiac guys are still waiting on a schedule update.

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

The extended rear wheel tubs got painted today. Just a couple more small parts and I should be able to start finally putting parts onto the truck and clearing out my office and other creative storage areas...uh, I mean bedrooms.

While helping play musical cars in the shop to make room for a couple of collision jobs for my friend, I sneaked a photo of the dash...

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

Thanks! The MAR-K hidden latch kit is one of the best aftermarket parts I've purchased for this build. It solved a huge issue I had with wanting a functional tailgate without the chains. To clear the links, you have to be careful in trimming the sides of the tailgate (you get a template in the kit). Since you trim back past some of the pinch welds, I re-welded the edge.

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

I got a few small parts back from the anodizer and powder coater yesterday afternoon, so I was able to get some of the cab moldings and trim pieces on, as well as make sure the instrument cluster still fits...

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

Starting to hang the front sheetmetal and will begin aligning everything this coming weekend.



Then I got a little gift from a buddy in the mail today...I'll have to machine it, but I think I have my column shifter handle.

Started to arrange and layout the bed wood planks, marking for cuts and notches to accommodate the extended wheel tubs...

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

After struggling with finding a decent door weatherstrip (bought one from Steele, tried a friend's Precision) without any possibility of closing and latching my doors, I broke down and ordered a set from Honda. Having gone through the pains of gluing in a weatherstrip before, resisting using glue turned out to be a plus. I was most concerned about fitment and staying put at the top of the door - it fits nice and secure...oh, and I can shut and latch my doors with a single finger.

Looks nice, I'm definitely going to use the Honda seals on my truck. Even the original seals don't allow the door to close properly
