Thumbs up Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

Thanx Tom ;

I'm a geezer and I like loud but not to show off, just to clearly hear speech and good Blues etc.

I found my set of these in craigslist in Az. for $10, new .

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

I bought them from Crutchfield. I think I paid 129.00 for them. What they do not give you a template. For the holes of the speakers. So I traced the speakers on a piece of cardboard. And marked the holes. And center them on the opening of the kick panel opening. Because the covers snap into the speaker and the opening. So you have to be pretty close to Center.

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

Well, I didn't actually "do" it to my truck, but rather "for" it. This is the closet-raid truck cover. It took most of a Saturday at the sewing machine (and back and forth to the shop for each fitment). It is two pieces, one for the cab and one for the bed. The pant's pockets hanging from the dark blue cover on the bed sides are for weights to help keep the bed cover from sagging in and raising up. Probably use lead pellets or the like tied off in a sock.

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

Thanks Painter...Well, it cost me some time and I did have to spend $20 at the Salvation Army for the number of sheets/blankets that my wife wouldn't let me scrounge from the closet.

The original box on my 72 had 4 1/4 turn lock to lock The lares box has 3 1/4 turn. It was a bolt in part with a new rag joint. My old box leaked and I wanted a quicker ratio.

Question Quick Ratio Steering Box

Thanx, I can seriously dig getting rid of a leaky old loose steering box but i drive on the open highways at speed, isn't this likely to cause overturning if/when I get cut off again and have to make an emergency manouver ? .

New steering box sounds really tasty I must say .

It's safe to presume that your truck also has power steering?

My 2000 Chevy truck has a 3 1/4 turn, now they both feel the same.

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

Nice truck Smitty, was wondering on the colour, looked dark green, nice because so many are black or red. Be exciting to have it back.
