Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

thanks Dale!
even though i personally think they look ugly, went with stock pillars this time
have been thinking along these lines for a motor. only thing that bugs me, it's not a very "symmetrical" looking set-up, looks a little lop-sided to me...
maybe a little overkill for a 4by..? either way, the plan is to bling the six up a bit

did have a big set back on the int. i'm guessing i must have accidently knocked my bag of int parts off the bench into my garbage can, cause i have ripped my room apart 2wice, and found nothing, and these are'nt small parts...
i tried to scab the '66's floor pan, seat and door panels onto the '60's, but as you can see, it looks like s**t, nothing matches at all, not even the seat pattern...

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

That's a shame about the interior. But the Suburban looks really cool.

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

ya, ripped my room apart again, pretty sure it's gone. may take some time, but i will figure out something...
have'nt got a lot on the sub done. still waiting for tires and stuff, and i been prepping for our holidays next week...
found a really, really old can of paint in the shop, thinking this is the oldest can i have found so far, googled the label, from the mid to late '80's i think....
been fighting with it last few days, having a heck of a time making it work, wont spray worth a darn, really lumpy (?) it acts like old paint, but i'm persistant and am trying to make it work, cause i'm really digging the color
been trying to get it to flow, getting there, test piece

took a chance and sprayed the dash and seats with it, also hit the seats with some Dull-cote so they were'nt so shiny..pretty plain inside now that it's a panel. thinking adding some wood in there. the low-backs are from the parts box

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

It's looking fantastic. We're having fire problems too. I've had a rough couple of weeks too. I had a lymphnode swell up. As a lymphoma survivor, I was a nervous wreck. I went to the doctor and did all the cancer tests. The doc said 9 years would be uncommon for it to come back. BOOM!!! test results are back and I'm still cancer free. I'm taking some pills that remind me of chemo (diareah and puking) but supposed to take the lymphnode back to normal size. If not they're gonna slit my throat and remove it...lol...But at least I'm still cancer free....Wooooohoooooo!. Vacations are always too short.. That's why they invented retirement. Hope I get to see it...lol

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

hey, wow! best of luck with that Dale, cancer sucks!
my wife is also a cancer survivor and goes in every 5 yrs for a biopsy. they removed a whole lot of parts from her, but she is coming up on 15 yrs now.
sadly i got some other crappy news last friday. my puppy dieseldawg has been acting weird lately and a lot of pain in his hind end. took him in for blood tests (he's 11 1/2 yrs old) and the results came back as canine soft tissue sarcoma, a kinda common canine cancer. i know he is very old for his size, but i'm going to throw $600 down on him and have it surgically removed, if it has'nt spread, he should hopefully just end up with a big indent in his hind leg....dont know if i'm ready to say goodbye to my fur-baby yet....
retirement....hmmm, shooting for "Freedom 75", none of that freedom 55 here....

some crap news, the only hobby shop within 50 miles from me, where i get 90% of my materials, closed down a couple weeks ago....going to make things harder...went and bought as much as i could, they did'nt have much, some company/entity whatever came in and bought most of the stock.
had no 3/32 tubing left, which i use for exhaust pipe, so i used some alum. rod on the panel. also grabbed a roll of solder, it should make nice pipes too

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

I'm fine, they're talking about removing the swollen lymphnode. The truck looks totally awesome. It's too bad about the hobby store closing.
