Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

I'll be posting more on the project soon. I've done little on it over the last 8 months or so, other than collecting parts. I've been a little distracted, chasing two legged deer around, but now have a renewed interest in the truck. I've made several purchases recently, NOS inner + outer grille & bowtie. NOS front fender,rust free Ca. swb fleet bed cab & doors. So lots to come soon !!!

Looks great........... And on some common ground my truck became what it is from a divorce also. It helps to have something to keep your mind right.

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

The latest work I did was have a custom front drive shaft made up by Tom Woods. With the 700R4 and the 4 bolt flange type front out put ( Later model NP205 ) there wasn't enough clearance between the CV joint & the 700 pan. Even with the smaller CV joint and dimpling the pan it's still close.

Other than that I've been collecting parts, new seat cover, blower motor, carpet, NOS arm rests, head light bezels, shifter boot & ring, gauge bezel. lots of goody's.

The house is my current project, painting and changing things to make it my house !!!

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

I haven't done much of any physical work on it for a while, but I have still been collecting parts. The motor that's in it now is comming out, because I picked up a vortec 383 that's going in. It's a fresh long block, I just bought all the accessories for it just need to get going on this again. I also picked up the following NOS parts : R & L inner fenders, R front fender & a complete grill.

Life has brought many distractions my way, but this will get going again soon, It's time !

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

Things are going OK !!! But I always thought that life was supposed to get easier as we got older, that things would just fall into place "LOL"

But I have learned that Nothing comes easy, you have to work hard to make things work, and finding the time for everything Huh !

This project is coming back up to the top of my list, and it will get done "LOL"

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

I've just started working on this project again. I have 2 new bed sides & a cowl hood coming, and I'm working on my vortec 383 stroker right now. I'm trying to determine what the cam is and wether or not it will work for this application. I may have to pull the cam and see if there's any numbers to ID it .

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

Any progress? I am going through a divorce myself. Married ten years here. Truck was bought prior to my marriage so hopefully I don't have to buy her half.

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

Hey Matt !

Sorry to hear about you divorce, it's no fun !!! But things do get better...
No progress lately. I've been working on friends projects and no my own.
I also just got home from a fishing trip to Alaska and that took all my extra cash. I have stocked up on lots of parts and plan to get back on track durring the winter months when there isn't much else to do.

Good luck with keeping your truck through the divorce. I was able to hang onto mine with out having to pay out anything. If there's something that she really wants trade her that item for the truck !

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

Still collecting parts & pieces, but the actual work on the truck has been on the back burner for a while. House projects are eating up my time and money right now. Re-doing my kitchen, hopefully after the kitchens done I'll get back to it.

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

Hey everyone, It's been a while but this project is coming back to life !!!
I've been collecting lots of parts for the build and now it's time to bring this up to the top of my "To Do List".... Tomorrow everything that needs stripping is getting loaded up and will be dropped off to get blasted. I've done a fare amount of research on this and have chosen this place Classic Car Blasting :

http://www.classiccarblasting.com/our-work.html

I met with them and they started this business do to having some inexperienced blaster ruin body panels on their own project. It looks like they do nice work from what I saw in their shop. Another good thing about them, is there about 5 miles from my house.

Picture to follow soon !!!

Gary

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

Thanks Guys !

I'll get some pictures up once some blasting has been completed. We'll be focusing on the cab & doors to begin with. I'm hoping there won't be any big surprises, I know one rocker will most likely need replacing, but the remainder looks very good. The basic truck came out of California, but parts had been
removed from the previous own for other projects. ( Just couldn't understand that, a 55,000 mile SWB 4x4 Cheyenne ) Most everything I've bought as far as sheet metal has come from Cali, Az and TX, so everything should be in very nice shape. I'm having all the body work & paint done professionally this time, no garage paint by me on this one.

Where did you get attachment on the engine hoist for the lifting of the cab?

I need someone like that for mine.
