Re: What did you do to your truck today?

Dropped off the truck with a friend at his shop, and put him to work....5 lug disc swap, power steering upgrade, power brake upgrade, (BIG thanx to CaptainFab!!) turbo 350 install, lowering and a set of rallys. Just a small amount of work. Went out this evening and cleaned up and painted the control arms and booster. Cant wait for all this to be done!!

I see your Craftsman rolling work stool did the same thing mine did. I cut a 2x8 and sandwiched it between the seat and the frame. This not only fixed the break but also raises the height to a better level.

Re: What did you do to your truck today?

This the corner piece is what was bad on my other trans tunnel , if you look at the tunnel next to it ,you will see that the rest of it has been hacked so many times it wasn't funny......
and here is the good piece relacing the corner ,plus another small piece added to make one good tunnel.. the other shifter that was in the truck didn't work well and this tunnel/shifter is out of the one I am doing floorboards on .. And I almost forgot , I drove it around the block a few times ....tomorrow I think new sparkplugs and maybe start of replacing the fender bottom , just have to love it when it is 63 degrees in march , tends to get me motivated...

Good idea Lake, I was gonna cut some plywood, but have some 2x8 scrap and that WOULD give me a better height. (That thing broke the first week I had it). And STILL no headers, glad I didn't scrap the stock system ahead of time.

You are quite welcome!

Yes it is Heineken. I thought that was strange, you would think it would be Guiness? Then I read this on Wikipedia:

Heineken is the titular sponsor of the Heineken Green Energy music concerts in Dublin, Ireland, as well as sponsoring Ireland's biggest music festival, Oxegen
My mother's maiden name was McClusky so I got some Irish or Scotish heritage goin on there too. Bagpipes make the hair raise on my neck... some connection happenin'.

Re: What did you do to your truck today?

Took the roof panel off of the donor truck. I will get this cleaned up and ready for installation on the red 66 that I gave to my BIL.

Re: What did you do to your truck today?

Last night I got into a fight with my headers, 2 1/2 hours later I won and got them installed. Putting long tube headers on by yourself can be a challenge, at least for me it was. Now it's time for the little stuff and the engine swap will be complete.WOHOO!!

Re: What did you do to your truck today?

Worked on the wiring. Took a lot of extra wires that didn't come from the factory. Now it starts with the key instead of a screwdriver. Got it registered today and now to get the insurance.

Re: What did you do to your truck today?

Went to the local scales and got the new '65 weighed for the registration. Oh, and here's a shot of her on the day I purchased her in the parking lot of Summit Racing in Reno Nv. I've owned her for three weeks now.

Re: What did you do to your truck today?

I finished up the body work on the front fenders and one cab corner. Also sprayed some epoxy primer and during the clean up of my gun, I splashed laquer thinner in my eye!!!
I always wear safety glasses while working...well...almost always!!..lol

Re: What did you do to your truck today?

Wife drove the truck and the shifter stopped working correctly (wouldn't go into park). Some little tiny spring came loose... uggh. Not the kind of work I want to be doing on my truck.

Re: What did you do to your truck today?

Spent the day mounting the brake pedal and the Capt. Fab plate, had to remove it so the bolts would go through the mount. Glued on the inner fender welt/rubber. Found the glove box lock and mounted it. Cussed the PO for hacking up the bolt that held on the steering wheel. The only way I think I cna remove this this is by a saws all, friggin' idiot.

Re: What did you do to your truck today?

Pulled off the exterior cargo hooks that some previous owner installed on the bed at some point. Also took a bunch of new pictures. Had a break in the snow today. Oh, and took her for a short drive around town.

Re: What did you do to your truck today?

Adjusted the valves on the 305 V6 been a while since I done the filler gage. Runs much quieter but need a little more adjusting. Took right fender off and will put another that I'm fixing.
