Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

thanks Dale!
when it comes to squares, always been a bigger fan of the '80's trucks. to me they just scream "TRUCK" with a capital T! (maybe cuz i also own a '85...)
well that dam groundhawg nailed it in my 'hood...we JUST had our grass make a re-appearence after a couple mos, then this carp blew in yesterday, and it's still here today, will be here tomorrow, and not supposed to leave until mon or tues....

have'nt got much done on the wrecker last week, 71 hrs at work, but i foresee a change here pretty quick with the weather...
nobody would prob have never seen this, but i thought i would show it anyways. my caster is getting pretty good at making junk, nice little detail on the manifolds...will be getting more, much easier to put in the trucks than headers...

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

It's looking great. I really like the winch bumper. I never liked the grill guard on the push bumpers. I cut it off on mine and it looked cleaner. We were having some awful weather here too. We went from drought to drowning. Keep up the good work.

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

I'm ready for winter to be done. I'm tired of cutting up the fallen trees at my house. Oroville was a scary situation. The next storm just started during the night and it's pouring right now. The truck is looking great. Yep, I remember those. Lol

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

learned a lesson last week....dont dick around with models if your sick..
tried doing some work on it with a cold, ended up getting glue on the wrecker body paint, broke the lightbar, and worst of all, got instant glue on the one piece window assembly, effectivley screwing up all the winda's...
but i managed to hide the paint screw-ups, and cut all new windows out of 015 clear- not frikkin' easy...
