However the finished product will be well worth the effort.

This project has taken a lot of time but I'm not going to deviate from my original goal of having a truck is easy to maintain and enjoy driving.

We are now into November and I should have some time to work on the truck.
Now that the house projects are finished I have claimed the rest of my days to making this truck driveable minus paint. We will see how that plays out.

We can shoot for a Christmas SAC meetup with the new trucks.... so they can have a play day!!!! My deadline of Thanksgiving is going away fast, so maybe Christmas will be the next one...

See ya at Roundtable!

Re: Roadkill's 58 Chevy Stepside

I found some time to work on the truck yesterday.

The bed floor is raised 4 1/2 inches. That placed the bed wood on the raised part of the front bed panel.

I'm probably not qualified to do this kind of work, but when has that ever stopped me.

The front bed panel is now sectioned so the raised part of the panel is above the bed wood line.

I would not have cut so close to raised part of the panel, but I had already cut it off before I decided to section it.

Re: Roadkill's 58 Chevy Stepside

great work! I was considering doing the same with mine. It bugs me for some reason when the bottom half of the raised part is below the bed wood.

Thanks 59chev.

A smooth panel would have been easier, but where is the fun in that?

Thanks Bomp.

I've read your build so I know you speak from experience.

Re: Roadkill's 58 Chevy Stepside

Working on the truck as much as I can. Have the fuel tank back in. I've been looking at retro fit in tank fuel pumps but not sure which one is best for the truck. I'm going with a "return" type as the truck is plumbed with a return fuel line. Probably wait until the external fuel pump fails.

Installed new spark plug wires. Trying to get everything done in the engine compartment before the front sheet metal goes on.
