Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

The passenger side door and the rear window left the cab today. Dad started working with a little filler at the kickpanels and the gas filler hole.





I vacuumed all of this insulation and acorns out of the cowl vents and from inside the back wall of the cab. Stupid mice.



I'll be busy replacing the cab corners and bed on my F150 for the next couple weekends, so it will be just a bit before I get back to work here.

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

The patch jobs look great. I like your work on the gas tank mounts. I've been wondering how I would deal with those and that gives them a real finished look.

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

Including the day spent moving the truck from the back of the shop to the main room, I believe that I've been over there 41 days (usually for about 4 hours or so) now. I'm not sure how many hours I have in the cab specifically.

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

After spending the past two months working on my F150, racing the Coug at Gateway (ran a new personal best of 12.097 @ 114.15 MPH), and cutting/splitting a winter's worth of firewood, we're finally back to work.

Today we pulled the windshield, removed the steering column and brake pedal, stripped the instrument cluster, heater box, wiring, etc out of the dash, did a little sanding, and spent a good hour just getting things organized.




It's great to be back on this project.

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

Your truck build is really looking amazing. You are doing excellent work on the rust repair and your "65 had a lot it seems. Keep up the great job and thanks for updating your build thread. It is great to see the progress that you are making on your truck and reading and knowing the family history that your truck has. Keep the updates coming.

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

Thanks guys! I was out of town for Thanksgiving last week/weekend, so I didn't get anything done. I hope to get some hours in this coming weekend.

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

Spent the morning touching up a few welds on the cab floor and the afternoon playing with possible paint colors for the interior. Currently leaning toward this shade (satin nickel), but we'll see.

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

That looks almost factory interior color, same tone as mine in the light however, lol.

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

Yep, that one has more gold in it than I expected, but it's still closer to silver than the original fawn.

Possible interior colors, part two.

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

I made up this handy little diagram the other day. The factory firewall really doesn't look all that busy until you start labeling all of the holes in it. I should be able to move a few holes to better hide the wiring harnesses, and some holes can be deleted altogether.

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

Pretty sure the small circle you have labled as Engine Harness between the large one and the one labled Heater Box is your windshield washer fluid access. Am pretty certain there is a 2 hole grommet that fits there for your push and pull washer fluid lines.

This truck just had a wiring harness clip/tab in that hole. Was the windshield washer an option? I don't recall this truck having it.

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

For your truck specifically I cannot say sir.
My 66 however has it.
The wiper fluid pump is integrated with the wiper motor, although the fluid resevour was mounted next to the radiator on the d-side of the engine compartment. Right next to the voltage regulator (of all smart things....)

I posted because I really liked your mapping all this out, I would have found it very useful about 8 months ago for my build.

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

My '65 doesn't have a W/S washer… yet that is...

Just saved your firewall diagram, will be using it when I get that far...

I really like the two-tone colors you are putting together...

I flipped through a bunch of the pictures I took before disassembly and did a little digging here on the forums to confirm that this truck definitely didn't have the windshield washer option. It didn't have the button on the windshield wiper knob, and there are no signs of a reservoir bracket, lines, nozzles, etc. I guess if you didn't have seatbelts, sat in front of a steel dash with a solid steering column, operating drum brakes with a single reservoir master cylinder, you didn't need to see where you were going.

I did find a great diagram of the optional system though:
http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=560357

I'm sure we'll eventually install a washer fluid setup, but I really doubt that it will be a factory setup.

Yep, just trying to decide what color we like. I'm pretty set on the silver on the right side of the second picture, but it isn't entirely my call to make.

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

What a cool build! This truck is going to be awesome when it's done.

Congrats on the personal best ET/mph. You're just a change in weather away from getting in the 11s. That is a fast car!

GREAT WORK on the firewall diagram. That needs to be in the FAQ section as a Sticky. So many guys (like me) went a little crazy filling firewall holes only to find out that we had to redrill a few when we starting wiring and plumbing the truck. Your diagram is a great reference tool. Thank You for doing that!

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

Thanks guys! I'll hopefully have some decent updates to report here after Christmas, as I plan to take some time off work so I can make some progress on the truck.

Thanks! I wish I would have had better weather to run in, but as always, I was busy on the days with great air. I'll shoot for 11's again next year.
