Re: 1960 GMC K1000 4x4

Kro, I like the one you chose the best out of those options. Have you thought about painting the frame, or some of the chassis components blue too?

Something like on post #49 here. http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...=434093&page=2


McMurphy, I took pictures of my truck, and several other ones I found and drew over the top of them in AutoCAD. They are full size drawings of the truck, that can be scaled down for printing. I just finished a stepside one last night, and worked some more on a rear view of mine.

If Kro... (hint hint hint) will get me the picture I needed from the front of his truck, I will get to work drawing one of those up too. No hurry though Kro, got a lot going on the next few weeks. (Sturgis Baby!!!)

Re: 1960 GMC K1000 4x4

I liked the idea of putting some color underneath. Most everyone paints everything underneath black. I think some body matching color, or silver/gray (not chrome) would really make things pop under there. It would be a pain to keep clean, but would look cool when it was.

Hey there Chevyman5, if you have a drawing of a 65-66 front I could sure use it!
Either pop it on my thread, or shoot it to me in PM please!
I dont draw so well with the computer, I do much better with a pencil!
Thanks.

Sorry to jack your thread Kro !!

Re: 1960 GMC K1000 4x4

Kro, I ran across this picture too, I guess it was a fire truck at one point, used for grass fires. That is a SERIOUS bumper!! LOL Also, check out the spotlights!

http://www.chooseyouritem.com/classi...0/8220616.html


I am going to be heading down through Utah on 8/7, or 8/8, maybe I could swing by and meet you, and actually lay eyes on your toys!

Re: 1960 GMC K1000 4x4

I am heading for Sturgis, and that is a quicker route than going through Yellowstone. The route takes me through Ogden, then off on I84 to I80, so looping down to Draper, then back up to I80 shouldn't be too bad. I will be heading back home that way too, so could meet up then if it doesn't work out on the way there. I'll be coming back on 8/15 or 8/16.
