Re: New 64 Stepper Project

Good thing I didnt hold my breath. The tailgate is looking good though. Just cant mount it until I buy new trunions for it (again).

Re: New 64 Stepper Project

So the paint shop had me pick up parts completed. Said they will clean up the truck and get it to my house. Here are some of the parts:

Re: New 64 Stepper Project

Very Nice. That tailgate looks awesome. Are you going to run the stock taillights?

I am trying to decide on mine between stock, 55-59 style or the 1950 Pontiac lights into the fenders.

Re: New 64 Stepper Project

Thank you. I plan on using the stock type tail lights stainless housings, chrome brackets with LED's. Not much difference in the tail lights you mentioned, the Pontiac lights would look good also.

Re: New 64 Stepper Project

Thanks Captainfab. I have been busy kind of, installed your brake booster bracket and the brake pedal bracket. Surprising how good the next gen rear bumper fits.

Re: New 64 Stepper Project

Truck looks amazing. Very inspiring to see the rear bed shot as I am working on all those pieces right now. I wasn't going too but after seeing the ends of your bedsides with the rails filled in I might have to do that now.

Re: New 64 Stepper Project

Thanks guys for the positive comments. It's been a long time waiting for it to come back. Now I need to clean the chassis as it is a mess. It went over to the paint shop wrapped in plastic but that didnt deter them removing it and causing max trouble for me.

on that next gen rear bumper what year model did you get and was any fabrication needed? I know others have swapped to that bumper as well.

Re: New 64 Stepper Project

I used a 67/68 C10 step side rear bumper, stock with stock brackets. I did however use 7/16" bolts vice 1/2" bolts as I had to allow for a tad more angle on the brackets without grinding out any holes on the chassis or brackets. The rear stock taillight brackets holes were dremel'd to allow for raising the taillights a smidge to clear the top of the bumper.
I also ran a ground line from the attaching taillight bolts on the bed (both sides) to ensure a proper ground there. I prefer that to the stock grounds.
