Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

Went from this to this on both sides. Happy to finally get all the holes in the doors fixed. Also, last weekend I changed out my hydroboost unit and the brakes are finally working right. They were very “grabby” when it got warmed up. Found a leak, apparently air was getting in the system.

Thanks bro.
The seats are made by Distinctive Industries and are called Touring II. They make alot of variations but you can't custom order, and I was looking for the Chevy color from the late 60s called medium blue. The color is slightly metallic.

Distinctive Industries also makes Procar Rally seats by Scat which you can find at Summit in many styles, but not in Medium Blue. One thing I learned about using these seats is the bottom bolsters make getting in and out a little challenging. It helps that my truck is dropped.

Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

Great job using the period correct power window switches! I added power windows to my 64 and plan on swapping out the supplied switches with period correct power window switches too.

Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

thank you!! these switches are from nu-relics...I had do some brain storming to mount them in the A pillar because of no access from behind. life would have been a lot simpler mounting them in the door panel.i could have used the 73-87 switches with spring clips in the A pillar....but I like the 60s style switches also...and I like the late 50s caddy touch mounted in the A pillar.

Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

this thread needs more rust

got the sill plates off, installed the dome light, mat, and seat..

had to cut a few screws and chase a lot of threads but it all went together fairly decent I think..

little trick I'll share in case someone hasn't seen it;





the truck shop mat went down pretty easy and most of the holes lined up with the impressions on the back..

especially pleased how well it sits in there since I dropped it right on the bare floor without tar or foam or anything yet..

$10 harbor freight gasket punch kit is probably spent, but did the trick for the mat and the seat..

even cleaned up all of the original pedal pads.. wd40 and steel toothbrush to clean and stand up a little fur to cut the gloss..

de-greased with 409 to get that squeaky, non-slip finish back..

my 6yo took some of these while I was trimming and fitting..





the seat story about this fabric from SMS has been beat to death so I'll spare everyone..

but the work Mando from San Pedro did putting it together is great, really comfortable seat..

and while I was cleaning all of the mechanisms and lubing the tracks, found what I think is a date..

all of the LOF glass is dated Feb or Mar 65 so 2/8/65 would fit, anyone know about this?





kids dig it! they took turns driving
