Thanks.
I wasn't sure if it could be saved or not, but it turned out nice considering how it started out.

Re: crew cab short bed build " clifford"

It's called sharkhide (I was almost right) and you can get it from Eastwood. It's $60 a quart but you can use it on many materials.

Re: crew cab short bed build " clifford"

Well, i finally got to drive my truck for the first time today. It's still not done or legal for that matter. But we are slow at work so i am going to work on it some here during the day.
The truck ran great and rode pretty good considering i havent put any shocks on the rear yet. It made the 11 mile trip with no problems execpt that it showed to be running hot, it's not. I put the scanner on it when i got here and it showed 183 after sitting about ten minutes. I used a sending unit for a 78 and i guess i should have used one for the 90 sub cluster i used?
Any way just stoked about getting to drive it.

I didn't get on it hard, but what little i did it felt lie it's gonna move it along without any problem. It has 3,73 gears in it now so we will see when i get done. I feel like it will get in the 16-18 range, it could be wishful thinking
Time will tell.

Re: crew cab short bed build " clifford"

If I make the trip out there & bring all the requisite parts (swb fuel tanks & bed), you can cut mine down to a shorty in a day right?
