Re: 1970 C30 Car hauler Buildish thread.

Well my new vise came in today!

Old Vs New!

[IMG]IMAG1317 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]
[IMG]IMAG1318 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

Because of how big it is I decided to mount it on the end of the work bench

[IMG]IMAG1319 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

Just to really compare the two

[IMG]IMAG1331 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

it's a Monster

[IMG]IMAG1333 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

So back to the build I did not get nearly as much done to day as I had planned.

I cleaned up the dash and painted the inside to prevent rust.

[IMG]IMAG1324 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

I also por15'ed the ends of the dash where its bolts in.

How ever as I went to install the dash I had forgotten to mount the hydraulic clutch master for the nv4500. So I wanted to wait to weld the dash in so it would make installing the clutch master easier. I was hoping to have the dash in and the cab seam sealed and primed today. But I was not able to scuff the por15 to prep it for primer as the scuff pads did not come into day. I tried sandpaper but it went through the por15 and that defeats the purpose of having it. So it will be next week it will go into primer.


I used an existing hole to for the steering column bracket to mount the clutch master.

Re: 1970 C30 Car hauler Buildish thread.

I got the day off of work today, so I got a little more done.

I finished up the clutch master.

I drilled a taped the clutch pedal for its new linkage mounting location.

[IMG]IMAG1335 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

I also got to use my new vice for the first time!

[IMG]IMAG1336 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

[IMG]IMAG1337 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

I also welded in a nut for the clutch master upper mounting hole.

[IMG]IMAG1334 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

Then I extended the linkage.

[IMG]IMAG1338 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]
[IMG]IMAG1339 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]
[IMG]IMAG1340 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

Then I extended the linkage for the hydrobooster, I used the old adjustable linkage from the old power brake booster that was installed.

[IMG]IMAG1341 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]
[IMG]IMAG1342 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

So having been trying to come up with a way to mount a bunch of AUX switches for lights and all the other feachers I plan on adding as well as maybe a gauge or two. But I could not come up with a way to make them look good that and I did not want to drill a bunch of holes in the dash.

I came across this sexy beast a few months ago and I thought about doing something similar. It would give me the perfect amount of space to mount everything.



So I cut out the data sheet as I was planning on having a new one made any ways.

[IMG]IMAG1343 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]
[IMG]IMAG1344 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

I bolted the dash in for mockup.

[IMG]IMAG1345 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

I was trying to decide if I wanted to angle it up or make it flush.

[IMG]IMAG1346 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

I was going to weld it in but I decided to make it removable. So I put it in to the sheet metal brake.

[IMG]IMAG1347 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

I welded two tabs in place.

[IMG]IMAG1348 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

The I welded to nuts in place.

[IMG]IMAG1349 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]
[IMG]IMAG1350 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]
[IMG]IMAG1351 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

I put the dash back in for the last time.

Re: 1970 C30 Car hauler Buildish thread.

Weather has been nice this week. So I started tearing down the truck. I also got a few things done around the house.

My new glove box door came in the other day.

[IMG]IMAG1357 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]
[IMG]IMAG1358 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

I removed almost everything in the cab I will need to remove the front clip so I can access a bolt for the heater box.

[IMG]IMAG1359 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]
[IMG]IMAG1360 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]
[IMG]IMAG1361 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

Anyone know what this is or what it does? I was on the coresupport drive side by the headlight.

[IMG]IMAG1362 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]
[IMG]IMAG1363 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

I found this under the gas tank. Its dated May 15, 1982 page 20 it looks like its part of a mag or news paper. The guy I bought the truck off of said he bought it off of a guy that used it to take his race cars to the track. That it was a ramp truck that was modified to a dovetail flatbed so he could put two race cars on it. I was not sure how he got two cars on it but if they where dragsters I could see it. Dragway 42 is in ohio and that is where I bought the truck.

[IMG]IMAG1369 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

I also did this, Broke the knob off. Its cast aluminum so I don't know if it can be tig welded back on or not?

Re: 1970 C30 Car hauler Buildish thread.

That is exactly what I started doing for my 72 to house my air pressure gauge, switch, and other switches. I haven't finished mine yet. Great work on it. That black box on the core support is an external voltage regulator for the alternator. Someone must have installed an alt with an internal regulator in it.

That looks so much easier to work on the dash with it removable. I really like the big flat piece on your new vice. That would be great to have.

I plan on doing the same with mine. I guess I will need to delete it as I plan on installing a high output alternator to run all the components I have planed on installing. I'm really happy I remembered to make the piece when I had the dash out. It would have been a pain to weld in the nuts with everything installed. But I suppose I could have used a rivnut/ nutsert.

So its been awhile since I have been on here. I keep getting side tracked. But I have made progress. Though not as much as I had hoped for. So I started work on the doors they were complete junk. The inner and outer part of the lower doors had been replaced. However they did a poor job and the started rusting out then they were filled with bondo and fiberglass. I was hoping to just re-replace the bottom of the door but I ended up having to replace the complete outer skin.

Here is what I am working with.

IMAG1373 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1372 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr

My new skins and inner lower panels came in the other week.

IMAG1436 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1437 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1438 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr

My lower control arm U bolts also came in.

IMAG1439 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr

Back to the doors.

IMAG1465 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1466 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1468 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr

Lots of cutting, trimming, fitting and rust removal.

IMAG1469 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1470 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr

Cheap planes

IMAG1472 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr

IMAG1475 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1476 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1477 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr

Rusty metal primer on where the rust was and primer sealer on the clean metal and over the rusty metal primer.

[IMG]IMAG1478 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr[/IMG]

I installed some nutserts as the origenal nuts where missing when the panel was hacked up.

IMAG1480 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr

Then I proceed to breaking my tool on the last one. I sent an email to smittybilt wanting to buy a replacement part for the tool and they sent me a compleat replacement free of charge!

IMAG1479 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr

Anyways I undercoated the door inside.

IMAG1481 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr


Now on to door number 2.

IMAG1482 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1483 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr

I sprayed the inner door skins with primer sealer then undercoated them.

IMAG1495 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1496 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1497 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr

I'm going to have to go back and cut drain holes in the other one as I believe that is what caused them to rust out to begin with well that and the way they where hacked togeather.

IMAG1504 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1505 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1506 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr

So before I could seal up the doors and install the new skins I ended up buying some new toys!

Radius dimple dies and a hydro knockout punch set. Unfortunately the knockout punch set is in mm and not inche like it was listed on ebay. More on that later.

IMAG1511 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1513 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1524 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1523 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr

So back to the doors, Something I have wanted to do since I bought the truck.

IMAG1526 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1527 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1528 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1529 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1530 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr

So it turns out the knockout punch set is in mm not inches and the dies are just a little to small. So I ended up having to ream them out with running a hole saw backwards not to rip the metal. Then I had to clean it up with a file then a dremel. So I only got one side done today and I had to order a new die in inches.

IMAG1532 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1531 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1533 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr
IMAG1534 by jarrod vanwinkle, on Flickr

So now I get to wait till next week for the new die to come in.
