1991 Crew Cab Short Bed Build

I'm not as organized as most of your builds and definately not as good at pics but here's my build...

I bought this pickup with the idea of going through every single nut and bolt. So far I've stayed to my word.













...more pics as I organize them

Re: 1991 Crew Cab Short Bed Build

1968vetL-71: I was going back and forther on keeping the two tone. I liked it, but at the end decided to go all black.

Telecasterjoey: Not an LMC dash, in that box was a dash cover, glued it on my original dash and just couldn't get myself to use it (didn't fit right etc...). Reading around on this forum it sounded like people have problems with quality and fit of aftermarket dashes so I bought an original gm dash from Classic Industries. It hurt the wallet, but I love it. I didn't want to look at something ugly or messed up everyday.

Re: 1991 Crew Cab Short Bed Build

taking a closer look I think that is the 're-covered' dash. I have pics of new dash somewhere...

Re: 1991 Crew Cab Short Bed Build

I used RAAmaudio for sound deadener. I used RAAMmat and Ensolite through the whole cab. What a difference so far, and the door panel and healiner are not in yet. The Ensolite (foam matting stuff) seems to make more of a difference than anything. The bottome of the cab was also undercoated so I'm hoping this cab is QUIET!

Dash looks great! I was hoping you found a cheap good looking dash but I guess you gotta pay for quality!

Re: 1991 Crew Cab Short Bed Build

Found a few more pics of seat install. These are 'take outs' from brand new Honda Odyssey's. A conversion company in Phoenix pulls them and a guy sells them from his backyard. They fit great and color matched perfect.

Also spent a bunch of quality time with my seat belts. Laundry soap and hot water did wonders.




Should've cleaned up the welds a little better but it's under the seat anyway (still bugging me that its under there though!)

Re: 1991 Crew Cab Short Bed Build

Those seats look great in there. Maybe you could get either grey or black vinyl and cover the sides of your seat bracket. It would cover the welds, and look like it was made as part of the seat. You have a great looking truck. Love the colors.

Re: 1991 Crew Cab Short Bed Build

Love the dash! What is it out of? I haven't seen a tach dash for a 91' and would love one for mine. I know they went to the electric speedo in 91 so any info would be fantastic! Again.... Amazing truck!!!

Don't want to clutter up your thread, but any more info on the tach/fuel combo would be great. That site posted did nothing for me. Thanks!!

Re: 1991 Crew Cab Short Bed Build

Try this link...you have to be pretty patient if you order one. I waited over a month. Some trimming to the gauge bezel and run a tach wire and you're all good. Lmc sells a tach now too
