As far as I can tell yes. It was in Macon before it was purchased by the guy I bought it from in Ellaville.

Re: New Daily Driver

Tackled a pet peeve of mine yesterday, I just can't stand the look of a crappy aftermarket radio in the dash of one of these trucks.

Some one welded up the original radio post holes to accept the aftermarket radio... travesty.

So I brought them back to the original size to accept a radio delete plate.

Then I painted a delete plate to match the 503 light green and...

Beautiful! That might be one of the worst "aftermarket radio" additions I've ever seen.

Lookin' sharp! I gotta say, I've never seen that particular method used to fit an aftermarket radio before.

Re: New Daily Driver

Received a freshly refurbished, he called it driver quality but it looks really nice to me, gauge panel from Tom (TBone1964) I'll post pics when I get it installed later this week.

Stopped by Summit on the way home from doing some college visits in North Carolina for my oldest son. (The kid has expensive taste is schools) Here's a pic of my younger son, he's my truck buddy.

Re: New Daily Driver

Cluster looks good! I can't wait for CTC to see the truck. I'm pretty jealous of being able to stop into a Summit store, I've never had the opportunity to go inside one of them, probably a good thing though.

Sadly we won't be at CtC this year, too many other obligations. As for the summit store, I ordered the night before and just picked up what I ordered... no browsing!

3"/5" drop springs, adjustable track bar, rear shock re-locators, and front/rear drop shocks.

Very nice! Can't wait to see it. I just took advantage of belltech's $150 rebate on a street performance kit. I have some dropped lower control arms and blocks so I should be about 5/6 when said and done. Sounds like you're staying drums, too. Mine work great so I'm not changing them.

Nice looking gauge panel!

What wheels/tires are you going with the 3/5 drop?

I'll be swapping to a 4 wheel disc set up at some point just not high on the priority list right now.

Very good looking truck! I don't think any of the trucks get past some goofy repairs. The last owner of mine used wire coat hangers for all his repairs. I must have found ten including one for a choke cable.

Nice looking truck, and good job on the radio repair. You're lucky you didn't have a hack job like mine. I'd have to cut out and replace the radio panel to fix mine.

Re: New Daily Driver

The 3/5 drop is complete, used CPP parts we picked up at the Summit Store in Georgia. The truck fought us the entire time, but we persevered! The drop has improved the look of the truck ten fold, but I'm hopeful the front will settle a bit more. Here's a few pics...

Here it is with the front 3" drop and stock height in the rear...
