Re: crew cab short bed build " clifford"

Wow, that's ugly. You better just send it up here when you get it done.






















Great job, that looks pretty dang nice. The thing I like about it the most is, the color combo is cool and you don't see many like it!

Thanks. I agree on it being lower, i think it will make all the difference in the truck.

The doors are another story. I ordered a aftermarket door knowing that it might fit very good, and i was right. Except it dont fit at all. It has about a 3/8 gap at the back and sticks out about 1/4 at the bottom front. So now it's back to patching rust on the original door.
I still am shooting for paint this weekend.

Re: crew cab short bed build " clifford"

That always sucks! My tri-plus fender on my Longhorn fits like crap too. So I'm told from the body guy.

Re: crew cab short bed build " clifford"

I scored a 79 parts truck yesterday that has a lot of good parts including the door i need and a hood. It also has i beleive a C&C rear under it. It looks like all the grille chrome is good also!

In the mean time i will get the other three doors cut in and ready for paint and paint the dash this weekend.

Re: crew cab short bed build " clifford"

Drivetrain is done. 5.3 and 4l60e. Next will be be lowering it, putting interior back in and mounting the burb buckets. It will take a little time to get all the doors back together and get all the trim on.

Hopefully i will get the doors painted next weekend.

Re: crew cab short bed build " clifford"

I got half the drop done, kinda got a stinkbug stance right now but i will take care of it.
Plans for the weekend is to get the doors cut in Sat. and maybe shoot them sun. I need to go get the parts truck that i bought sometime sun. so i can get the other door and hood.

Then i will try and do the flip one night next week.

Re: crew cab short bed build " clifford"

How are you finding time to get this thing moving along so fast? I love it. Did I miss what you are doing for tires or are you keeping those?

Its tough finding the time,but I have to hurry before baseball starts or I will never get done.
The tires on the aluminum wheels are 235/75/16 that I was planning on using, but I may need to go shorter.

It sure helps get things done during the weeknights when you can work indoors in some decent light. Looks great!
