It may have fought you, but it came out awesome. It looks great with the top and topless. I didn't notice the hose either. LOL

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

and i have been searching for another '50 so i could make a super cab, but after weeks of looking, no success. unless i want to pay $60 or more with ship & exchange & customs.....and all i really need is just the back of the cab & the running boards- just cant justify the cost for that ... (aint telling the wife, but i already got about $40-50 in aftermarket for it, tires, axles,etc)
but i do have plenty of styrene.... except for angle, which i need more of...
so, taken a different route with the '50

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

snow, or more so the cold has been causing me nothing but grief on my '90 stepper Dale. doors keep freezing shut, pulled the weatherstrip off a couple times, tried getting the canopy lid open and the drivers handle snapped in half, then it bagged my starter, had to walk a couple miles home in -10 windchill....
so i said the hay with it, parked it, & re-insured the crewcab yesterday. half to use 4 hi a lot, in 2wd the locker keeps kickin' it sideways
and i got 3 teeth done, 6 left. dentist fixed the half broken one, ripped out the nerves & re-capped it, and root canaled 2 others, shoved them back up, and fixed the chips on them. need 3 implants, their next. got held up cause a 3d scan showed up a fracture in my jaw where the teeth broke below the gum line . so thursday she jammed a screw in there & shot in some silicone, cement, mastic, whatever it was...give it some time, then she will try doing the implants.....woo-hoo, 2 more root canals coming up.. in 3 visits she has jammed me with a needle 23 times!, but thats my fault, i told her i WANT "gentle dental"....
and have got a couple things done on the camper, just making axles for the truck
furnace and fridge vents are on, lites, ladder, and the glass is in, it's just clean at the moment, hard to see...lol

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

Camper is looking great. Sounds like you'll have your mouth back together soon. I'll quit complaining about how cold it is here. Your cold temperatures are way worse. ...lol

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

thanks Dale!
going to see her this friday...(dentist, man, almost 45 yrs without seeing one, then the last 5 yrs here.....jeebus...)
and we finally broke above freezing! still got a lot of snow though- blah! stupid thing, after all this snow for the last couple weeks, today me & the boy are going up the Coquihalla....in the snow...
got a couple trucks for christmas, hobby store nearest us has a real hurtin' selection of chevy's, but wife snagged me the wrecker, and my son got me the '41. half to figure out what i'll do with the '41, wrecker is easy- another "Alpine off road recovery" truck for the fleet

son also got me this KX (almost an exact match for my old 1:1 KX)
detailed it up a bit, mite use it on the '50 on a front hitch mount, but i think it's a 1/32. in my eyes it seems a little off scale. i'll wait and see

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

here's where i been spending most of my time lately.
it seems the smaller you go, the bigger the price gets...almost a hundred bucks for just a few accessories, so i been getting creative (spell cheap...)
my sink is an Advil pill blister pack, not sure what the "fridge" is or from what, stove is scratched out of plastic with speaker wire grilles, and you dont really want to know where the fabric came from...
ok, i'll tell ya, the ONLY blueish material that was kinda to scale in my whole house, was a pair of my "used" fruit of the looms (just dont sniff it..)
still need to add curtains (not F.O.t L.'s) and some camper jacks, and whatever else pops into my head

I got a question. Are you stripping the paint off of a painted model? If so what is your process? Thanks.

yeah, the '50 is a old model built almost 20 yrs ago.
Castrol Super clean is your friend, the purple stuff. fill up a tupperware tub and let it soak, rinse off with cold water. usually soak a couple days for a easier strip

and for tougher paint, good 'ol DOT 3. same process as the purple, and rinse it with cold water too

a lot depends on how the paint was applied, and what kind. some tougher paints (marine) i have soaked parts for a week and still have to scrub the old stuff off. the castrol also strips chrome off any model part in about 15 mins if you dont like flash on your models.

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

yup, waking up is half the battle....
things were cruising along nicely. changed the trans crossmember to fit the 427, just squeaks in on the inner fenders (with some tweaking) good clearance on the rad, but i did'nt check the exhaust
six'er is a lot narrower then the 427. Turbo is much wider too

exhaust is now banging on the frame...one thing the '50 has is real good vertical clearance under the hood. going to raise the motor mounts a bit, and prob put a tiny notch the frame

The stance looks great. I like the interior color too.I'm guessing trucks going to be blue.

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

thanks Dale!
yeah, blue, blue, blue...gm medium brite blue. was digging around in the shed and found 2 frozen cans i was able to bring back to life...
really need to mock up more of the motor (i usually use just the block..) was a bit more involved than i first figured. notched the frame and raised the engine mounts, also had to take 3/16 off the bottom of the inners, shaved the firewall thinner & bent the exhaust manifolds a bit...but it's in there...
