1966 lay frame build

I didn't want to start a thread until I had something decent to show off. I am building a 1966 C10 SWB BBW factory a/c cab that will lay frame and it will have a LQ4 with a performance LS3 top end. Started with rust repair. BTW, I hate the rust repair.

Re: 1966 lay frame build

After the cab was rust free and the chassis components from Choppin Block came in, I realized that I did not want to use the factory frame rails. I decided to fab rails from the back half to the front bumper. Started on the welding table.

Re: 1966 lay frame build

Finally got it down on the ground and dropped the motor in. The stock exhaust manifolds do not fit. Does anyone know a good header for an LS3 that are compact?

Re: 1966 lay frame build

Looks good so far. I used a Headman Header for LS swaps on my last one. They have gone up in price a bunch since I bought them.

Re: 1966 lay frame build

I always go long periods of time w/o posting. I was able to get my truck tore down and the frame reassembled.

Freshened the look of the motor and accessory drive.

Re: 1966 lay frame build

Decided to try out the fuaxtina paint job. It tuned out fair. Wish I was handy with an airbrush to make it look more real with some detail work.

Re: 1966 lay frame build

For me, it was essential that I one pieced the windows. I don't mind the way the vent windows look, but I can't stand the whistling. I started this project when there was not a kit available. One Piece has since started producing a kit. I had custom glass cut and tempered to templates I made. I welded track around the inside of the window frame so that it would hold a proper rubber. I used sweep material I found on eBay. I also took out 3.5" of the stock style mirrors. I think they turned out nice.

Re: 1966 lay frame build

This post is a little out of chronological order, before I installed the interior. I had a trim carpenter buddy help me build a box for behind the seat. Gave me a place to mount a sub, an amp, my air ride computer, and (2) 6x9s. I have 6.5s and tweeters mounted in kick panels. I'll have to get a picture of those later.
