Re: 1963 GMC C30 panel truck

Spent most of yesterday replacing the spider injector in my wife's 97 GMC, and trying to figure out why my odometer and tripometer aren't working in my dodge. Had it all a part, not able to figure that one out yet. Glad I got some time on the panel though!

Re: 1963 GMC C30 panel truck

Gave the steering wheel a couple of coats of paint and clear coat after a good wet sanding. Happy how it turned out.

Re: 1963 GMC C30 panel truck

Started to mock up the gauge cluster. Here is what I have been thinking. Going to add some wood for the shroud. More to come as it progresses...

Truck is coming along. I am really interested to see how it all comes together.

Thanks! I have been pushing to get things done. Going to be working on sand blasting the rest of the rear sil and cross member tomorrow and continuing work on the gauge cluster the following week. I have been thinking about what type of wood to use for the gauge panel, I have access to some pacific yew wood at a local mill and the hardware store has a bunch of different exotic woods to.... I want to go with yew for the bed wood so I'm leaning towards the yew for the dash.

Re: 1963 GMC C30 panel truck

It sounds like this will be a cool panel when done

What is that gauge cluster from?

Thanks! The gauge cluster is out of a 1992 Dodge, will just plug right into wiring harness I have for the 5.9 Cummins motor I will be using.

Re: 1963 GMC C30 panel truck

Got down to the shop this past weekend. Started to remove a few more parts. Pulled the steering column, master cylinder and a bunch of the wiring. Looking to pull the engine in a couple of weeks. My brother in law wants it to replace the 305 in his 77 Monte Carlo, should just slam in

Re: 1963 GMC C30 panel truck

Started working on the barn doors. I want to get the back end all back together. Had to weld on a few new nuts for the bottom latch for the drivers side door. Had to touch up a few broken spot welds and cracks. Just need to patch one bad spot and it will be ready for some POR 15.

Re: 1963 GMC C30 panel truck

Found some beauty black walnut for the gauge cluster backing. Picked up some 1/16 lexan to go behind the walnut. Just kind of making it up as I go along. Will get what I got together then will figure out how to mount the gauges and seal it all up.

Re: 1963 GMC C30 panel truck

Did some reassembly on the drivers side barn door. Moving forward. Will still have some sheet metal work to do on the body before I can bolt up the rear crossmember.

Re: 1963 GMC C30 panel truck

Has anyone replaced the hinge adjuster plates for the barn doors on a suburban or panel? If so how do you go about it? Looking to do mine this weekend, the bottom ones are fairly rusted out and some fresh plate would be ideal. I was thinks of cutting a slot on the inside of the cab and extracting the plate, putting the new on in and welding the sheet on behind it. Ideas picture would be great.

Re: 1963 GMC C30 panel truck

Found out the C30 panel frame is a different width then suburban frame. Wider by 4" for each side. I will be reversing the frame extensions and shimming them up to fit the bumper brackets and crossmember and sil plate. Has any one faced this. Any other ideas out there?

Re: 1963 GMC C30 panel truck

I'm thinking that you have a rear bumper and brackets for a '60-'62? The '60-'62's have a wider frame in the rear. The '63 and up frames should be 34" wide.

I think your right. The guy I bought the bumper and rear sil off of told me that the suburban was a 63
