Re: 46 pickemup in NJ "the Rebuild"

Can someone PLEASEEEEEE tell me which way these door hinges go. It's been so long I can't remember if the hinge barrel faces the front of the truck or the rear. I really don't want to press the pins in only to find out I have the hinges in backwards.

Is it pic #1 with barrels facing forward?

and no those are not my feet!

Or is it pic #2 with the barrels facing towards the back?

Re: 46 pickemup in NJ "the Rebuild"

Alright time to kick it back up to the top with some progress........ When we last left our hero was attempting to finish wiring the tailights. Before I soldered all my connections I wanted to make sure all my tail, brake, turn and license plate lights worked. This meant i would have to make the final connections at the battery. Sooooo I figured I would go out and buy some fancy terminals for the battery connections, big mistake. After finding some nice ones at Sonic Electronics that claimed they were for 1/0 guage wire, I poped for $40. And here is what I ended up with................

There is no way these will fit 1/0 wire buy the time I peeled back enough wire to get the cable in the hole I had more like 2/0 wire left. That wasn't going to cut it!
[/URL]
So I ended up just going to the local Tractor Supply store and buying regualr battery cables. Thanx Sonic for ripping me off. So it's pretty self explanatory. Big red goes to starter.(the loose red wire is from the MSD box) The 2 big black wires are one ground to block, and the other to frame. The 2 small blacks are grounds from tail lights and from GPS speedo.
[/URL]
Once I got over that debacle, susprisingly enough all my lights worked!
[/URL]
Mr Magoo could care less..............
[/URL]

Then it was onto headliner and all the inner tin work. This all went amazingly easy. Especially the headliner, which for some reason everbody struggles with. But for some reason it went right in! I orginally wanted to upholster it but for some reason the glue I was using wouldn't hold. I think it may be because of the super smooth finish that was on the headliner which looked terrible. So I just refinished the headliner with a textured black finish. Maybe once I find a better glue I will take it back down and try it agian. At this point I just want to get the truck on the road.
[/URL]
Also got the seat belts in, (which after all the work I had to do to extend the door jambs), worked out really nice!
[/URL]
After the debacle with my windshield gasket from Steele rubber I debated on where to buy the rear window seal. After drinking the Kool Aid, again. I decided to give Steele another try. Once agian it looks like I have the same problem as my windsheild seal. It looks way to small to me. So I am still debating on wether or not to use this one.
[/URL]
Next up, I have the doors back on the truck with all new hinges. I am just waiting on some mirrors and then I can send the hinge pins home, and re-assemble the window and lock mechanisms.

Re: 46 pickemup in NJ "the Rebuild"

Is it possible to just run the next size drill bit in the center hole to open it up a bit on your battery clamp.............. now that your are finished!

Re: 46 pickemup in NJ "the Rebuild"

Well, I rolled the ole girl outside let her breath, and wash the 5 years of garage stank off her. LOL! Finally got the doors, fenders, and boards hung. Still need to install the futs into the doors. I guess it's about time to make a decision on wheels and tires. Definatley going with smoothies, just can't decide if I want.......

Black wheels with White walls or,
White wheels with Black tires or,
Black wheels Black tires
any opinions?
I'm going to need to get a custom back space made for the rears because the rear end is just a tad to wide for my comfort. The wheels currently on the back of the truck have a 4" back space. I think I am leaning towards 4 3/4"

Good Luck in wheels and tires, I like black walls, but if you get the white walls you can turn them over if it dosen't suite you

Did the rear axle come come from Justin?

Now thats funny chit! Actually from what I can tell the rear is out of a truck. Its a 12 bolt with a 5 on 5 pattern. I couldn't find any serial numbers but if memory serves me it is 63"?
Back when I first got started on the project I looked around for something a little more narrow but couldn't find anything with 3:73's to match up with my 292/ 700 r4. Most of the junk yards here in NJ are either closed or they want an arm and a leg for parts. I just figured i would tuck the wheels a little more and call it done.

Re: 46 pickemup in NJ "the Rebuild"

Ok so it sounds as if all my pics in the build thread will be going bye bye soon. I am not going to try and transfer all my pics from chitbucket over to imgur.

Sooooo the Paintman spent the weekend doing short test drives to make sure all the mechanicals in the engine compartment work before I bolt the fenders and grille on. All in all everything worked perfect except for the brakes. For some reason I have good pedal when the engine is off, but when I turn the engine on and activate the booster the pedal gets to sloppy for my liking. The brakes work, but the pedal goes to far to the floor before they get firm. I am going to disconnect the vacuum line and see how the brakes work without power assist.

That dog will never fit in that truck. Seriously though glad to see you are on the road and it sounds pretty sweet to me. Looks like you live in a nice part of Joysie.
