Re: Sparky's 1978 Silverado Build "Addiction"

I'd definitely try Eric. He built a very similar setup for his Sedan delivery that ran great.

( You should see all the stuff he's built that isn't posted here!)

Re: Sparky's 1978 Silverado Build "Addiction"

Working on straightening out years of dents, and dings! It's worth the effort to use some old gm steel though. I have the first round of body work done on the left side, and I'm just about done beating on the right side.

Still have a little work to do on the tailgate before I can paint it, but the bed turned out nice. I'm going to spray the inside of the bed with color matched bedliner.

If you could move to Hawaii and do my truck next, that would be great!

Re: Sparky's 1978 Silverado Build "Addiction"

Awesome Jayson!! I have a new TAC Module and APP Sensor on the way and should be here tomorrow. Hopefully, that'll cure my lack of "zero" throttle response????? Mike

I have been using the tintable raptor liner kits. I really like how user friendly it is, and it looks really nice when it's done.

Mike brought up the 78 today! We got the bed put into place, the paint lines, and body lines all line up like they should, and he is one step closer to getting this old girl back on the road!
