think i went a little overboard with the styrene on my flatdeck.not a 100% sure on this, still have to add side markers, maybe a change or 2

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

have'nt been getting a lot done lately, spring finally came & making up for some lost hrs & have also been unstoring the truck & camper
did get more junk in the mail. some more 38's for the dually, a t-case for it, some drum brake backing plates, some d60 parts & a set of 44's for another project. not shown are 2 D60 axles & a lund visor

supposed to be a front & rear D60 axle set. somewhere somehow i ended up with 2 rear axles. not going to send a $2 part back, so some cutting, some careful drilling...

revell cheaped out on the stock duallys, just an inner & outer rim & squeeze the tires against each other. made some liners/spacers, whatever you want to call them, keeps the tires way more solid, & i can gap them now. once there black should'nt be able to see them

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

some more details
did'nt like the antennea's, wrapped them in wire & instant glue to make them look like the old "Firestik" style. digging threw the parts box found these cool little lights, think i will add them to the mirrors. twin snorkeled my air cleaner, will sand off the aic valve, put some linkage on the 205, & used a ford exploder alternator.

while been waiting for stuff to dry, started screwing around with my van
just working out a graphic plan with paper patterns, pretty sure this one is going to be.....surprise, surprise, black (fav color). got some big honkin' iroks for it too

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

thanks Ol Blue! weather was stellar this week, been cranking off some big hrs.
but i did manage to get the dually 97% done. prob fri or sat have it cleaned up.
had a old '71 econoline when i was 17 or 18, bashed the fenders out a bit & had some old wildcat mud tires on it, nothing like this chev, they were about a couple inches bigger than the stock 15's. there's this place down the valley called S.W.A.T. 4x4, there was a early '80's chev van parked out front sitting on what looked like 44's a couple yrs ago. thing looked totally awesome, pretty much got the whole idea from it
