Definitely cool then! I understand driving the Honda. I've worked for a GM dealership for 17 years. A few years back I bought my 1st Ford and my wife a new Lexus. My company owns a ford franchise so that wasn't a big deal but I was kinda worried about the Lexus. Nothing ever came about it and 3 years later she's back in a GM product.

Do you remember what type and year of car/truck your knobs came from that will fit?

They look a 1000 times better.

Thanks,

I did find this also:

I would think that all the shafts are the same on their radios.

Tell me about it. But who would have ever guessed that those things would have been such a sought after part, after all these years!!

The knob on the left, is a match. They are most like the original knobs on the old radios. The pic just didn't show it very well. I like those too.

Update on the Baster Project:

The adjustable table came, got it put together. Blaster sits on top nicely, and since it is adjustable, I can put it at a comfortable height . And the generator fits nicely underneath.

Here's a pic from the website for those knobs. I like these, since they resemble the knobs on the old radio.

Re: My 86 build

Had a little accident in the garage earlier this week. This about made me sick!! Well I guess since I haven't gotten my hood painted yet, I'll just have to have my guy that's doing my hood take care of this mishap too.

It's on the left front fender, a chip and deform!!!

Yes I do remember that. I'm trying not to stress too much over it. I know it's not the end of the world, it is something that can be fixed. It just would have been so much better if it hadn't happened. Thanks for feeling my pain!!

I have a guy, he's a good friend of my parents. He repainted my GMC Sonoma S15, I had back in the day. When he was done with it, it looked better than the day I bought it. He is very very meticulous about his work. His shop is about an hour or so drive from me. That is the only thing holding me up from having the truck there already. He's the one that will be painting my hood, well now he will have to fix this too.

Re: My 86 build

Did you have to have the whole fender repainted for that dent? I have one in my door and did not want the whole door repainted. Now I park where I know and hope no one will park next to me and slam their door into my truck. You have done a beautiful job on the truck. I had my longbed repainted Victory Red. Love that color.

I have not taken the truck to get the hood or the dent/chip fixed yet. But i will get it all done at the same time. My guess is that they will paint the fender to blend.

Very nice project. When I get around to doing my interior, I might have a ton of questions.

Re: My 86 build

FloorMat is from floormatexpress.com

But their website has been down for awhile now. Here's phone number 1-888-554-0666.
What I got was the Velourtex Chevy C10 Standard Cab 1 piece Mat, in Black. But they also have embroidery options. That Chevrolet is a 60's style. Then choose an embroidery color, mine is white.
