The old 2 piece Megascoop? It would look very cool turned backwards on the intake. Maybe the top half only? They donít make those anymore so it would be pretty unique. I thought about buying 8 exhaust u bends and making a cover that looks like a tall LS1 intake but the bends are expensive and 8 of them would be over $100. I hate being so cheap. Iíve seen where some people are shaving all the ugly off the truck intakes and I have 4 of them so I may experiment.

Re: Yet another GMC build

It looks like this but is missing the butterflies and needs a good sanding and polishing.

Re: Yet another GMC build

Truck was wearing the tires on the outsides and I had no idea how many miles were on my vette suspension so I replaced the upper and lower ball joints as well as the tie rods and got it realigned. Drives better than ever. I think I may skip the stall converter and save it for the 69 I'm building. That truck still needs a converter and it will have more cubic inches, cam, compression, and gear to back it up. Think I may just drive this one as is and enjoy it until the other truck is finished. Still need to cover that ugly truck intake. Like the covers on my other engine but they were pretty expensive!

Re: Yet another GMC build

The upper door panels were getting very faded and a little stained. (Same orange cloth on the seat) I still have 2 full hides of the dark gray leather so I used a heat gun to remove the cloth and replaced it. I would like to do the seat as well but that will be a larger project.

Re: Yet another GMC build

I like those bands of trip on the top and bottom of the door panel. Stainless? Aluminum? Is all that covering original door panels?

Aluminum strips from Lowes cut and drilled to fit the factory holes. Original door panel taken off. Stainless would have been nice. I built these door panels from scratch. To see pics of the process see page 9. The strips actually hold the upper in place. The lower is mostly plastic trim clips like an old camaro door panel has.

Re: Yet another GMC build

I bought a Radio Flyer model 40 childís wheelbarrow and cut it up. Made a mounting bracket and rattle can painted it. I think the emblems on the side are a nice touch.

Re: Yet another GMC build

I canít help it. I want to go faster. Plus I got bored. These are the headers I bought for my LS 69 C10 unibody project. They are actually for swapping an LS into a 73-87 pickup. Iím pretty amazed that they fit like custom built headers specifically for this truck because with the corvette suspension all my stuff seemed to fit wrong. Iím really leaning toward finishing this and getting another set for the other truck. They are Dougís headers ( not Doug Thorley) part number D314.

Re: Yet another GMC build

That cover turned out sweet! The headers sure fit nicely too!
