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



Before...



After....
(*dont know why my phone made the floor look yellow!)

Still need to add about 50 hog rings and pull it tighter but the wife wanted me to do other stuff so I had to stop. BTW, I converted the bottom from 'high spring' to full foam.

I replaced the springs with a ridged lower but it feels perfect when sitting in the seat. It may be a little stiffer than if it had the lower seat springs but it feels perfect to me.

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

After pretty much just driving the truck for 20 yrs since I originally built it, a few repairs/upgrades were way past due. Fixing to move to NC, so was time for a new steering box & front sway bar. Also finally got around to making the shock relocation brackets for the rear & modifying the 32 Ford track arm to get a better angle. truck rides much better now & will be ready for the curvier mtn. roads.

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

Replaced the carpet. Had to be done since my master cylinder was leaking into the cab. Had about a 12" wide strip of carpet and pad that had soaked up the leak over the however many years it was leaking. Had to clean out all the soft paint and brush all the rust and treat it.

I also put down some insulation. I researched a little more than I wanted to on the subject and decided to try an alternative route. I purchased a couple 24"x10' rolls of Reflectix double reflective insulation, for about $11 a roll and spray glued it to the floor, let it dry for a day and then put the carpet in over it. Install was easy and everything seems to be working well and staying where is is supposed to.

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

Replaced my spark plug wires, cap and coil. Coil fixed my random cut off issue. Discovered my rear wheel cylinder was leaking. It's always something but enjoying the journey.

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

Installed a new radiator fan shroud, only to find out that the Flex-a-Lite fan that came with the truck is too big! No wonder it didn't have a shroud... And what happened to NAPA? They don't carry red-blooded American Chevy V-8 parts anymore? All I want is a stock regular old clutch fan for my truck. I thought it was mandatory for NAPA to have that stuff on hand and within reach at all times. I was looking forward to shopping at NAPA and chewing the fat with the old timers behind the counter now that I actually own a piece of living historic cast iron blocked truck, but sadly, they have become mainstream sellers of Subaru windshield wipers and discounted hand cleaner... I blame the internet!!!

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

Wow, surprised Napa is going that route, maybe just your store or certain ones depending on size and location, hope that's all.

I'm in Canada and I'm sure the Napa stores here do not hav ethe parts you folks can get in the USA. A short search found this page on the NAPA site. https://www.napacanada.com/en/search...rer=vehicleAdd

Drove it to breakfast & flirted with the cashier. She just likes me for my ride. Otherwise, just another basic Saturday trying to dodge the rain.

I ordered a replacement fuel filter for the one I cannot figure out where I put it and I picked up some more fuel line clamps.

Oh man. With prices like those it's easy to see why more Napa stores are going the way of the others. It's so they can stay in business.
While all of us want the best parts we can't stomach the high prices. A flex fan looks a lot more reasonable and they rarely wear out.

Hey @sellersrodshop ! (Love the fact you're flying the Gator flag in TN!)

I'm fixin' to do some steering work myself. Wondering what you settled on for a steering box and sway bar. RedHead? Did you have/replace the damper too?

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

I did a bunch of non exciting stuff like hunting for rattles,hooking up gauges,oiling the cables to the heater control,changing the valve cover gaskets and aiming the headlights.Oh,and vacuuming the floor again because the dang leaves keep coming out of the vents.

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

Flipped this over yesterday, so we can hit the backside. The body guy is doing a great job. He has in mind a bed-liner coat out of the gun. He says most people spray light or heavy, but he's in-between. Leaves a near semi-gloss finish. We're going to hit the front and rear wells with the same, but I'm going to ask we dull it down some for those. Close to satin anyway. Looking forward to results.

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

Solved the problem of engine cooling fan. Searched the pick and pull down the street and came up with a 7-bladed fan from a 1990 GM car with a 305 v-belt drive and mated it to a fan clutch from a 77 Chevy pickup. Bolted right on and fits nice within the shroud from LMC. Cools the engine real nice, quieter than the flex-a-lite, and will suck your shirt sleeve through the radiator! Cost: $15.

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

Progress has been extremely slow. I was able to "dig" out the bed bolts. 3 layers of spray in bed liner. That was fun. I also started on a bed cart for when I remove the bed.

Steering box was a rebuilt unit from advance auto. Had an online coupon & got it for a tad over $100. Swaybar is 1.25" CPP from Summit racing (free shipping). Everything else was still like new from the frame off I did yrs ago so no need to replacve anything else.

Flying the Gator flag here is due to me growing up in Sanford. Actually went to Lake Mary HS for 2 yrs...
