Re: 72 one owner C20 project

Yea i have seen some crazy prices on those tow hooks and i took some left-over T top pipe and made the handle i am mounting it just above the door passenger side and with a step my wife might be able to make the jump on my daily driver it's also an 8" lift with a step, but it has 3 handles to grab!

Re: 72 one owner C20 project

Ok i mounted the hooks and was somewhat disappointed i thought with all the hype they would stand out or look like something special. i guess not but they are mounted with 5/8 case hardened bolts. Not sure if i am going to keep them on or not my wife said well its like that piece of the truck that if it was not on there you would not notice. ??

Re: 72 one owner C20 project

Project 392X molding trim holes drilled and now waiting on paint. New mufflers and pipes are going on Tuesday. wife requested a step i ordered what i have on my tow truck Bully Step polished so i made up a handle for the interior over door so she can grab the handle and step into the truck. Also waiting on my neighbor to get home he has a Classic Air unit i may install to keep with the 80's build look. so i drilled and installed Riv-Nuts into the inter and bolted the handle to it, it seems to be stout we shall see,

Re: 72 one owner C20 project

With the 8' lift getting in and out was a chore so i fabricated some brackets and used a set of steps for a newer truck. And added a 7-pin plug to work with the class 3 hitch i fabricated. Duals sound good but now you can really tell it has 4:56 gears

Re: 72 one owner C20 project

Well, she is done except for fender badges and a tailgate trim piece. the interior will be getting a custom back wrap to cover where the fuel tan was located and where the speakers are now.

Re: 72 one owner C20 project

Wanted to install a bed cover but not have a snap on or a water pool found a really good deal on one, It fastens under the bed edge and has a heavy vinyl top that has aluminum ribs to keep it flat, Also tensioner that keeps it tight a latch in the rear to open it a set of straps if you want to just roll it up and another set of latches if you want to remove it all together, it was very reasonably priced and looks great.
