Re: My 1st 68 panel

and some more. It had to have taken longer and cost more to do this vs doing it right.

Re: My 1st 68 panel

But it ended up cleaning up pretty decent so I can see what I have. I have a real nice floor that I cut out of another truck I parted that has not sold so i am going to bring it over and cut out the sections I need to make this stuff right. This panel originally had Utility buckets in it but I am going to install the 68' Suburban Buddy buckets I scored a while back. I already bought new foams from Truckseats but have held off buying covers until I can decide on a final color. So far that has been the hardest part, trying to decide color. I am 75% sure I am going to stay with solid color and not do a metallic, but if I did the metallic I would most likely do the burgandy to match the Harley. I guess I should not hang the grenade from the rear view mirror though, Some flake may call the law then I would get shot for not hearing their commands to get out of the truck.

Re: My 1st 68 panel

Could not resist setting them in to see what they will look like. Also pulled the carpet back on the rear floor section and can only hope the rest of it looks this nice. If so I will leave it just like that. The front carpet was real nasty faded. I am assuming it was originally black.

Re: My 1st 68 panel

It's hard to believe the (hard to get replacement panels for) step up behind the seats looks to be in good shape. Maybe the lack of rear windows kept it dry or it was always parked on a slope with the back higher. Those buddies look good in there. Will they slide forward enough to get in the back from the front doors? If I remember correctly the backs are fixed. Good to see you're making progress.

It is weird with this thing, all the outer lower panels all the way around were totally rotted with gobs of filler yet underneath the truck other than surface rust there is no rot in any of the cross sills and supports short of one front cab mount. I was going to use the aftermarket floor panels that I have sitting around here but the fit is so poor I am going to cut up this decent original for exact patches. It has a few holes in it but everywhere I need for this job is in good shape. Should save some time.

As far a the seat, I have not done anything with it other than putting it in for a picture and was trying to figure out what shifter handle I will need to order from Hurst to get rid of the Herman Munster deal. Since it is just me and the wife now, I had no really given much thought to rear access other than thru the rear doors. After looking closer at the existing handle I may try my luck at cutting it down and re-threading it for a new handle that I got from Harlow a while back. All the new handles I have found so far have been $100 plus so I figure I got nothing to lose by trying to modify this one.

Re: My 1st 68 panel

Did you find the two inch drop rear springs you had been searching for?

No i gave up on that and found a new set of stock springs for $70 that will save a lot of time on cleanup. It appears the rear end is a little lower than the front right now anyway so I am hoping I can get everything balanced out just in new tire sizes (when I get that far) Been too hot to mess with it last few days. Heat index is supposed to be 106 today. Yesterday I was on the roof of a local WalMart most of the day wiring up one of the new "Pickup" signs in 103 index heat. Ended up going to shop and get my pop up tent to get the sun off of me. LOL but got the job done.

Re: My 1st 68 panel

Not much been happening here. Work has been crazy coupled with the heat and humidity. The only thing I have done is come up with my back up horn if needed
