My 68

I've longed for my chance to start a build thread and the day has come... Well kind of. I had 1969 truck that only needed a cab replacement given to me by my uncle. As we all know that story. One thing leads to another which leads to more rust which leads to the frame off restoration. Well midway through the cab being finished I became irritated with the direction in which it was headed so I started shopping. Over this past weekend I picked up this unfinished project from another board member and I have begun putting it back together.

Truck is painted, although it will need a few spots retouched after installing everything I'm sure. Has Ride Tech E1 kit, C-notched frame, Bucket Seats (for Sale) One Piece Windows. Boss 338 Wheels 20x8.5 front. 20x10 rear

Never turned a wrench inmy life, so there will be a lot of questions coming from this camp in the future. Here are a few pics when I picked her up. The bed is not bolted so yes I know it doesn't line up properly.

Some future plans will be:

Wilwood brakes
Cpp 2" Drop Spindles
Porterbuilt Upper and Lower Control Arms
22" Racelines
383 stroker motor
Edelbrock Fuel Injection
700r4 Tranny
Buddy Buckets
Accuair
Billet Steering Wheel
Dakota Digital VHX Guages
Vintage AC
Fessler Taill Light Lens
LED Tail Lights
Led Turn and Park Signals
HID Head Lighting


Maybe later in life she will be porterized by Porterbuilt also, but for now. Just some. First things First I must get it running first. Without further adieu here she is

Re: My 68

Good looking truck. I like where you broke the paint line for the two colors, I wanted to two-tone mine but couldn't come up with a good place to brake it.

Thanks.
I'm thinking about adding an off white pin strip between the two colors. I took some autozone stripping and laid it on the bed last night. I love the way it came out so I may have it hand painted. Or I could lay the vinyl stripes on it and save a few bucks.That way I could remove it if I ever wanted to.

Clay barred the outside to take care of a little overspray issue.

Will be ordering parts this weekend to finish everything except the engine and tranny

Re: My 68

Got some parts in, goal this weekend is to get bed mounted, tailgate installed. Grille trim, headlights, parking lamps etc. all bolted on, and work on finishing my drivers side window.
Will order hush mat sound deadener to do cab and doors, and hopefully fuel cell from Boyd's welding.

Any advise on tailgate install is welcomed!
