Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

That's it they swapped all of Blues diffs eand all the running gear to the new frame. A local trans shop built a new trans the old one shattered in the accident.

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

ouch! looks like a hard hit...some kind of pole or something?
did not know about an accident Dale, that's too bad
at least part of Ol Blue lives on...

lots of spun out cars and fender benders everywhere today, including this one right in front of me. i turn left at these lights and go down a pretty steep hill to the ferry terminal at the bottom...the sedan had a hard time getting going from a stop at the lights, was spinning his tires like crazy but could'nt get out of the way fast enough for the suv sliding down the hill....t-bone right in front of me.....sedan should have had winters or at least all seasons on, could have got out of the way then...

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

weather was just as bad on the water. went upstairs to get some pics but the outer decks were all closed because "the snow makes them slippery...."
as you can see there is jack for snow on the decks, but it's frikkin cold anyways, low 20's with wind blowing 30-50 mph and visibilty was mostly zero

been wanting a CUCV brush guard for a long time, their a little more rare up here north of the border, and this one is pretty mint. only wanted the guard, but had to take it all, for $250. the d-shackle mounts i will prob use. i have a 5/16 thick angle plate across the front of my frame for my front trailer hitch receiver that i'll bolt them to cause i will be using my chrome bumper and i'm not cutting big square holes in it for them...
also got the stainless package for my box yesterday, bed sides, t-gate protector, and bulkhead protector

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

was never crazy how the cucv brush guards have just a piece of strap steel on the front between the mounts. there always bent.
my 9" lights would not fit anywhere on the cucv, so i cut out the middle bar carefully, drilled some holes for my lights and welded it across the piece of strap steel. the guard feels way more solid and less "bendy" now, and picks up the "loop" design nicely i think

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

ya, but it's melting fast....till tomorrow, supposed to get another couple inches ...then sun for a few days
last sat we rolled my crew back into the shop and took out the winda's and popped off the door handles...little more sanding and it's good to go....
finished my cucv guard. i left as much as the military paint on as i could- good stuff whatever it is, then red oxide'd it and painted it with some satin epoxy paint...but it's not very satin-e i think.....hopefully it'll keep the rust at bay for awhile

buddy's K20 we were looking at is kinda a no-go. his friend served in Afghanistan, 5/4 ("trailer park boyz"), that's what the 5/4 on the front fender of his K20 stands for, as well as a CF badge and flag. his intention is to give it to his buddy- for free. so i threw him the cucv bumper and d-shackles that i just picked up. he really wanted the guard, but no way
so his other friend has this 1/2 ton for sale.
one yr newer than mine, '86, 350/700r4, tilt, a/c, new dashpad, newer paint, everything works. going to look at it this sat, son likes it

and ya, it's not a chebby, but i got bored and am putting this TBD Devastator together. wife bought me 6 small planes the other yr....finally doing something with them...
the finish is from Torpedo 5 (VT-5) from the USS Yorktown (CV-5) just before WW2
once it's all together and painted i'll hit it with some dull-cote to tame down the brightness of the paint

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

Goodness you are busy. I was in the hospital so I have fallen behind.....I like the grill guard, it looks great with the lights mounted. I like the K10, it looks like it's been loved. I always enjoy you're model building. The prowler is going to be cool.
