Progress pics of my '68 GMC Extend-a-cab

I'll start with a couple of before pics, keep in mind that this only came into the shop to have a 5.0 l 5 speed installed. I will post more pics as I come across the time too.

Sorry, I was going to post some progress pics today, but a simple 6 hour round trip parts run, turned into 13+ hours of driving through one of the worst snow storms of the winter. Too think that yesterday was so nice here I was going to pull the other vehicles out the storage shed, boy am I glad that I didn't. I will post the pics as promised when I get back to the shop. Have a great weekend.

Here are the only two pics that I have on this computer, (hard drive went for a trip). The first is of the cargo/brake light and the second is the original owner's manual that I scored off of ebay, thanks to CPNE.

Thanks, that one is from a long time ago, it is currently painted inside and on the underside and remounted to the new chassis, the box is sitting on the frame and the front fenders are mounted. We are hoping to have it run under its own power by the end of the week.

Here are a couple of pics of the drivetrain, and one of the bottom side of the cab while it was still on the rotisserie. The last one is of my helper for the evening.

Here is how it is almost sitting right now, I am hoping to get the dually fenders fabricated this week sometime and then sandlast and paint the box. This truck is going to be one long unit, especially with the car trailer behind it.

That looks awesome ! What rims are you going to use ? You are going to have to spend nearly every night up there to get it finished by june Eh ?

I would recomend not sandblasting the box. You will warp the sides for sure. Your dad should know that. Unless you mean Media blast that would be oky.

I am going to a wrecking yard next saturday I will check for that emblem you need it's a 930 GMC right ? Any other small parts you need ?

Later, Mario

72MARIO: Thanks for the compliments, I believe that I might have three 930 emblems now (thanks to longhorn71 for one). I don't believe that I am going to be sandblasting the box as I stated, probably media blasting or taking it down the road for some soda blasting.

YELLOW72CUSTOM: Thanks as well, I really wanted the modern day chassis and running gear because I plan on pulling the car trailer or our fifth wheel house trailer with this alot, the original drum brakes all the way around just wasn't going to cut it.
