Br3w City's Project omgwtfbbq

If you've linked here from my YouTube Channel or other social media sites, welcome to my build hosted here on 67-72chevytrucks. tweet @wtfrevj or IG @rev_j_hd

I'm not affiliated with this link and take no responsibility for the use of the addon. Only putting the link because it worked for me, and I want everyone to see my build!!

We're over 20 pages into it now, but this is the beginning.

Welcome to post #1 for...
THE H8RDCPTR. (i put the omgwtfbbq as a placeholder thinking i could change it...oops)
I was lucky enough to be given most of the original paperwork tracing the trucks history. Started its life in Oklahoma, and spent some time in Georgia and Florida before coming up to WI. I have the original metal service tag and owners manual somewhere too.

Started with a 66 short-step with a small back window. The truck was in pretty decent shape or so it seemed. Had a metallic green re-paint in the 80's, some rust that I could see but nothing horrid. Had a different hood since the original had been destroyed by time/rust.




The interior was mostly clean, gas tank removed and seats replaced with a later model bench seat. Newer wheel replaces the original also.

The front also sports a 1-1/4" swaybar setup.
The rear is approx 5-6" lowered, with a small notch to clear the axle.
Nitro drop shocks all the way around.
Truck rear end with 3:73 posi, moser axles.
Mickey Thompson aluminum wheels.

The motor is a small block 355;
Scat cast crank
2.02 heads with the bowls polished
Comp Cams 4wd extreme cam
Weiand Sportsman manifold
Holley 670cfm Street avenger carb
Aluminum drive pulleys
Be-cool radiator / electric fan

It's backed by a 700r4 trans, Hurst shifter and mild stall (can't remember which one)

Re: Br3w City's Project omgwtfbbq

First step after the basic maintenance was to start rust control, body repair and trying to uncover WHAT is hidden under all that paint.
Brought home the welder and decided to start by filling some holes in the bed rail (p.o must have had a cover on it at some point).







Hidden under the paint were even MORE holes, aside from the 40 small ones, a few of these bigger guys were in there. Looks like they had been filled with some sort of foam and then painted right over.


A few minutes with the welder, and some quick rattle primer and it looks MUCH better.

Re: Br3w City's Project omgwtfbbq

Started on my fenders, which actually was a happy surprise. After taking the paint down, I found the the major rust was only about 5", the rest of the surrounding metal was clean and rust free. I trimmed the bad stuff out leaving a nice square hole in the fender.

Got my patch made and started the welding process....yikes I'm rusty. I haven't welded sheetmetal in probably 3 years, wire setting are a *****.

I did manage to get a nice clean patch after all was said and done, time for the filler!

Re: Br3w City's Project omgwtfbbq

While the filler was setting on that patch, I moved on to a "small" ding on my door.
It started no bigger than a quarter, but after some sanding...it kept going. There was nice baseball size dent and some wrinkles surrounding it, almost looked like someone was going to repair it but gave up.
LOOK AT HOW THICK THIS SH!T IS! And thats not even the deepest part.


Got the inside door panel off and started with the hammer and dolly to straighten it out.

Now that I had it much closer to where it should be, I could start with some filler.

Soo much straighter now

Straight like it should be!

Re: Br3w City's Project omgwtfbbq

This weekend should yield more pics as the stripping process continues. I have also removed the reverse lenses, and sunk the tail light cups into the fenders for a cleaner look...stay tuned.

Re: Br3w City's Project omgwtfbbq

Hahah ya. Most of the truck is actually fairly solid, it seems like the p.o. did more damage to it then nature did. Hopefully I should be able to finish stripping the bed this week so I can start to fill those holes in the bed rail, and clean up the tailgate etc.

Most of my previous sheetmetal experience has been with newer S10's, trucks etc..working with this nice thick american metal is a relief

Re: Br3w City's Project omgwtfbbq

Another weekend gone by, and some more progress made.
Continued on the stripping, working along the rear fender.


Welding up some holes in the bedrail and starting the prime on the fender

The "bubbled" finish under the rail is some older paint that chem stripper was soaking on.

Re: Br3w City's Project omgwtfbbq

Starting to strip the tailgate

CRAP! Hit myself with the grinder while moving it in a tight space


Finished the tailgate

Welded the front bed panel, and then got a little rust hole surprise under the finish.

No blood no foul, I guess you can kick it back. I cant tell you how many times I've done that or on the bench grinder with small stuff.

Re: Br3w City's Project omgwtfbbq

thanks for the comments guys. I ALWAYS wear glove when grinding now; about a 3-4 years ago I had a grinding wheel on it and it slipped when I stepped on the cord. I've got a 1/4" gap in my fingerprints from that one.

62 bowtie - They are LED lens/bulbs. Its the stock size lens, with integrated led's and the stock style plug. I took the reverse lights out, and welded the stock light buckets where the reverse lenses use to mount. I sealed it from the back, and then can screw in the lenses as normal from the front.

Re: Br3w City's Project omgwtfbbq

Started taking the paint off of the drivers door. Very solid but i did get a few surprises.

Another dent in the same place as the big dent on the passenger door. Its tough to tell what happened, but weird its on the same spot. This side is nearly as bad.

What the heck is this? Looks like a couple of phillips screws that they filled right over. Is this a stock mirror mount or something?

A little bit of crust on the bottom of the door, shouldn't be a tough patch though.

Re: Br3w City's Project omgwtfbbq

Sanded down the paint and bodywork on the front fender and got a nice size rust hole. A little bit worse than the other side, but handle-able. There were a couple pinholes a bit higher up too.

Cutting out the rot

The gnarled steel.

And the hole

Cut a patch panel to fit. Luckily the edges were still good on the original steel, so the patch was easy to cut in.



Out with the old and in with the new.

Re: Br3w City's Project omgwtfbbq

its been a while since I posted an update. Alot of progress has been made, and the rest of the photos will come later this weekend.

A couple of changes so far



Fenders are off and all of the stripping has been mostly done. The besides have been stripped now, nice and rust free!


Later this weekend I will have some shots of the finished front filler work, and some progress on patching the lower doors.

haha, thanks man. The shoes are actually painted P52 style, with the mouth on the nosecone, there are kill marks on the sides, and a few various insignias. I think they are from Circa but I can't remember exactly.
