Re: '50 chevy 3100

Got a little bit done here and there. Still a lot of sanding to do before paint.

Re: '50 chevy 3100

Last few days has been a lot of sanding. There are still a few dings but all the rust has been cut out and replaced. I've gotten to get some good practice with my new hammer and dolly set though. A lot of dents and other areas look a lot better than before. But I'm still a novice, not perfect but I think the truck will look pretty good.

I backed the truck up into the middle of the yard. I'll have to paint outside, as y'all know. So the less leaves and junk the better.

Re: '50 chevy 3100

Check out a little book called metal bumping. Old but good theory. From same era as the trucks we have.

Re: '50 chevy 3100

Thanks! Should I get one of those bags instead of using a dolly? I saw a guy take a fender that had the indentation for the spare tire in it and take out that dent to make it a regular fender.

Really wish I had caught him before he did it, would have traded him lol.

Anyways he was about done when I got there. Had it on a stand, had a little leather bag and a old hammer. I couldn't believe it.

Re: '50 chevy 3100

I got the Metal Bumping book and it changed what I thought about "pounding out dents". I'm very much a novice, but that book helps.

Good looking dog!

Re: '50 chevy 3100

Got a few small things ordered. Wipers, antenna, bumper bolts, tailgate chains, and a driver mirror.

I'm going to go ahead and use the old bumper that came with it. Heavy duty looking bumper. Looks like something a farmer would stick on. Who knows. Both bumpers are a bit beat up so they are going to be painted black.

Also got a new cowl vent gasket. The one from classic parts makes vent sit high instead of flush. Plus it leaks. Ordered from Steele Rubber. Fingers crossed. Also got an idea for reverse lights. B 31 tear drop type. Found one so far.

Re: '50 chevy 3100

Been busy last couple weeks when weather was good. Before and after of paint plus a few more. Bumper that came with it has to stay for now until I find a factory one. So license plate bracket might look odd to a few of you lol.

Re: '50 chevy 3100

My rear stake pockets have been modified by a PO. Last couple inches curve inward instead of being square, so I had to extend the brackets.

Re: '50 chevy 3100

Thanks! I've been trying to figure out insurance and stuff lately. Don't want to get a bad deal ya know.

In the process of cleaning up my yard. I have a large yard and there was a building 30x12 I just took down. Finishing up floor now. Very crappy construction. Separating boards everywhere, floors were made ofbtgat particle crap that cant get wet. So my foot went tgrough in a few areas. Salvaged a lot of the sheet metal and gave a brace a good tug and it came crashing down.

Anyway I plan to build a sliding gate in its place so I have a secure area to park.

Re: '50 chevy 3100

Well I got that building torn down. Taken me a while to get the area all cleaned up. That time of year where it's freezing temps and then nice sunny days then freezing again. And I'm around tiny sick monsters all day! Flu, strep, fevers, runny noses. So of course I've gotten sick twice in two weeks. On a good note, just a b'day. Big 30.

Checked with permits office yesterday on where I'm allowed to put a building. And the best spot for one is right on top of gas line so I guess I'll be redirecting that at some point. As for now I have the spot for my gate narrowed down and I looked at my friends gate across the street today. I was thinking 15 feet his is 20 and I figured I better go 20 now than wish I had later. Supposed to be a couple warm days next week so I'll start digging gate footer soon.

Almost forgot! I decided to ditch the 18 inch wheel for a 15 inch.

Re: '50 chevy 3100

I like the grant style but thought I'd look up reviews of off brand ones. Found this one and I'm pretty happy with it. Just had to get an adapter.

Re: '50 chevy 3100

Weather permitting I'll have the gate done soon. And it looks like I'll be moving my gas line at some point. I was going to hire someone but man they want up to 1500 bucks!

Re: '50 chevy 3100

6 hole is momo pattern, right? 7 is lecarra, 5 is grant.

anyway, I like it!


digging a trench for a gas line sounds like a lot of work!
