All is well Greg. I figure I have a good 25 years to build more trucks. I have a lot in my kit-bag for later.

Re: Sparky's 1978 Silverado Build "Addiction"

Very nice work Mike! A lot has been done since I saw your build thread last time. Congratulations on buying an acre.

By the way, I heard my brother had found your Instagram photos and admired some great pictures of your trucks.

Re: Sparky's 1978 Silverado Build "Addiction"

Few pics from this afternoon. Was able to get an original set of 350 valve covers cleaned, blasted than painted. Also installed the air cleaner and air intake sensor along with the sport mirror brackets.

Thanks Mike

Pictures
1. Valve covers done
2-4. Intake installation with Air Temp Sensor installed.
5. Sport Mirror mounts installed on both doors.

Thanks Frank. Today I started on LS wiring, some rear brake work and installed the firewall insulation.

Re: Sparky's 1978 Silverado Build "Addiction"

Getting the front end sanded and buffed in preparation for Mike coming to pick it up! It's looking nice! One of the fenders didn't turn out quite nice enough, so it got sanded down and repainted, and all is well now.

Jayson, is this a picture of your shop with some sort of red filter over the camera lens?

Sort of! The painting part is easy, it's the hours spent running the pictures through photo shop to make the paint look good that will get ya! Mike came up Saturday and hauled the front end home. He built custom fit wood cases mounted to his trailer, and with the parts wrapped in moving blankets they made the trip to his shop without a scratch.
