Re: 84 Crew Cab Rebuild

Holy crap you have done a lot! Looks good man! I used to work in a body shop about 13 years ago, had to pay off some welding work on a 350 S-10 swap I did. I can definitely relate to you on how drained you feel.

Re: 84 Crew Cab Rebuild

I know what you mean about welding, that is why I had to pay off the work that was done. I am trying to get a little more welding under my belt, and I think this truck is going to be the thing to let me accomplish that. Keep it up and it will payoff.

Re: 84 Crew Cab Rebuild

little update

got my oil cooler lines mounted had to bend the to long once to clear my electric fans came out good with new o-rings


i think the white/gray battery trays fits great a colour change in the engine bay red engine black fenders and white/gray add-ons


these are they 4 point towing mirros from LMC they fit horrorbel but got them to work and for the price i dont complain had to mod them abit to get them to fit good btw they are stainless steel


had to bend them here in a vise


got my rear end all together again with new material on the brake shoes, turned drums and new wheel cylinders there was nothing wrong with the old once but they where cheap so i might as well do it now

Tonight mine pulled a few cars out of snowbanks, and is sitting in my driveway, icicles on the grille, wheels just white cakes of snow, buried up to the lug nuts in powder, straps and chains wrapped around the bumpers, the outline of the wipers clear in 4 inches of snow on the windshield... A tired warrior of the 1980s in a world of low profile tires, front wheel drive, and plastic bumpers, where people stay in their houses until snowplows move the offending substance from their paths, too helpless to travel without AAA and chains and salt, clearing their windows with longhandled brushes while gently stepping around in the snow trying to stay nice and dry.

Re: 84 Crew Cab Rebuild

Man, I know it sucks sometimes but don't stop now. You've already got way too much money and time in it. Atleast get it drivable. Honestly, I couldn't have come close to doing what you have done so far. I never could do wires. Just looking at that harness would have been the end of it. I'd turn it into a BBQ pit! lol
