Re: Francis the Tow Pig - 1949 GMC 250 Dually

so outlaw, I like the overlook of your truck. I notice that you have shoulder belts in a 3 window cab. how did you mount the top pivot for the belts? I don't see any details on your or any other posts. belts are my next project on mine. thanks.

Thanks, I drilled holes and plug welded each one in 3 places. You can slip the "backing" plate in from the top with the headliner out.

Re: Francis the Tow Pig - 1949 GMC 250 Dually

Well since most of the need-to's are done, things will probably slow down on Francis for a while. I picked up an '89 K5 Jimmy to replace my F150, started a "build" thread on it.

I also had an '82 2WD, mine was a Jimmy and still had the stacked headlights. Would love to have that one back also.

Re: Francis the Tow Pig - 1949 GMC 250 Dually

Well I finally finished up the battery box project. Wife found the perfect box on Etsy of all places. Dimensions couldn't be any better if I would have fab'd it myself.

At shows I was just throwing a wood box made out of the bedwood scraps and burned to match.

Very happy with how this turned out, battery access is also a snap.

Re: Francis the Tow Pig - 1949 GMC 250 Dually

Well, time to focus some energy and time back on "old projects"

Since September, I have bought and sold a 60k original mile 1989 K5 and a 1987 C10(R1500) that after redoing the exhaust got a new interior. Oh yeah, and found one of my all time wants...a 2wd GMT800 Vortec Max, which is my current DD. (I've had 5 different DD's in 2 years.....Hello, my name is Marc and I have a problem.)

Well old Francis here, needs some attention too. Time to get back on it.

Plans for the pickup are as follows:

- ZQ8 front sway bar(already sitting in the shop, 33mm size)
- New weatherstripping and window channels in the door
- AC
- H-Pipe in the exhaust(maybe different mufflers, maybe)

I also need to get back on the Z28...it needs front steering rebuilt, struts, cruise control, and the AC also....and an aluminum DS.

Either the '49 or the Z28...maybe both?...will hopefully be going to the Father's Day Car Show at 5 Rocks Amphitheater in Gering, NE this year.
