Re: 68 project

great hanging out today man. Truck looks incredible. you have really put a ton of work into it and it shows. gonna be a real neck turner and traffic stopper when you get it on the road. better invest in some red velvet ropes to put up around it when u park it.

Re: 68 project

Thanks Robert, always a good time hanging out. Ahh, it is okay. I can't use red velvet it won't match, will have to be red canvas.

No I haven't had to move yet, they have yet to set a closing date. Commercial property can sometimes take a good while to work out the logistics on. So until I am told I have to vacate I will continue to plug away and get as much as possible done.

Re: 68 project

Wrapped the headers today and the pipes back to the mufflers. Not to bad for the first time. Thanks to Robert (cknfrmr) for all the help today definitely not a single person job.

Re: 68 project

Heck I always come out ahead with the knowledge I get. And this time a little itchy. Ha Ha Ha. Also have so much fun and get to see that truck. I don't see how anyone could get the wrap real tight by themselves either. The last pic is where Larry caught me admiring/day dreaming of his truck going down the road and me following behind when we get em done. Thanks again for the parts hook up.

Re: 68 project

Headers look nice and cozy in there. I wonder if you'll notice a sound difference. I guess you were able to get it done in one day.

Re: 68 project

I know you're never supposed to ask a women how much she weighs; but how much money do you think you have invested into this build?

Great build thread. Thank you for taking the time to document what you've accomplished.

Not sure on the sound as I have never heard it prior but I would say it would definitely change the tone some. It is actually supposed to help the flow become faster also. Yes, it took us about 4 hours to complete that included un-mounting , wrapping and bolting the headers and pipes back on. I would say you definitely do not want to try to tackle this without an extra hand.

I would not even know where to begin, I have not even kept track as I knew it is not cheap.

Thank you for taking the time to read through my build thread, hopefully soon it will come to a close.

Thanks, the long haul is getting closer to the end. Time to get back at it here soon though I have not had a chance to work on it much lately

Finally was able to get to the truck shop today and with the help of cknfrmr was able to get the cab bolted on radiator support and filler, inner fenders and right fender. Finally starting to come together.

Re: 68 project

Well, today is another day, going to try to get the steering column mounted in and the other fender along with the master cylinder so then the brake lines can be tied in. Can also get the grill mounted if I can scrounge up enough bolts at the local Lowes hardware store. I am almost to the wiring point Please pray for a miracle on my wiring skills

What's your plan on the wiring? I like the painless 16 circuit harnesses.

Re: 68 project

I also have a painless 16 circuit harness, it will be located in the glove box area. When you open the glove door you will see the 2 computer controls for the fuel injection and transmission and the fuse panel. I am trying to keep the engine compartment as clean as possible, the battery is located under the bed just behind the cab.

Sounds a lot like mine. The tool aid crimpers do an awesome job on packard 56 terminals.
