I thought about doing that or putting plastic over it. I don't get alot of time so the time I do get is spent on cars. I've been workiing on the 55 and now I'm trying to get my Miata painted. I might post a before and after pic of the miata even if it's not a GM product, I know how ya'll like pics.

Re: My 1965 build thread

I'm restoring a '63(frame off) does anyone know where i can find a diagram of how the cab to frame mount kit all goes together. It's been a while since I took the cab off and don't remember how all the bushings and bolts go. Thanks, Alan

I can scan the diagram that I got with my kit.
It would be tomorrow though, because it's at the shop.

Re: My 1965 build thread

I haven't got anything done to the trucks for awhile. I 've been working on a Miata. I'm almost done with it. I need something that is better on gas. Maybe I can get back on the trucks soon.

Re: My 1965 build thread

Nice job on the Mazda. I would love to get my hands on a 55 that nice then drop it with some bigger rims and engine swap and drive it. Leave the body just like it is. Also looks to be a great start on the 65. I am headed out today to pick up a 63 SWB GMC that I picked up last week for a steel so I will be watching your build from time to time. Keep it up. Also you seem alot like me! I have 6 project vhehicals right now in different stages, a 1140sq shop that is getting a second floor added this summer, a 1880's hose that I am rebuilding, 4 1/2 month old son and I am still bringing home more projects! My wife must be a saint is all I can say.

Re: My 1965 build thread

I've got a dilemma. I've got to many projects and there is no room in the shop. I'm thinking about selling my whole 65 project or part it out. It would free up alot of space. I haven't worked on the 65 since my last post. At this rate it will take 20+ years to complete. Don't ask me why but I got hooked on the miata. I've got 3 1/2 of them now and might get another in a couple of weeks. I want to build a turbo miata and a monster miata with a V8. Have I completely lost my mind?

So you are giving up on the 65 ?? Looks like you were making great progress on it.

We had a couple of LS powered Miata's here in town....They were mostly used for the competition 'drifting'. The local speed shop is curently building another one, with an LS7 I believe.

I would keep them all...and plan your work schedule so you can work on each one a little.

It's up to you man....So what Miata forum you on ??

Your right I might regret it later. I just dont have the room. Plus I want to work on other peoples trucks or cars to make some money. That's the main reason I built the shop. But, my projects have over taken. I'm not going to make a hasty decision yet.

Re: My 1965 build thread

I'm Back

I listened to you suggestions and decided to keep all of my projects. I've gotten back on my 65 and made a little progress. I bought 2 Good mark doors last year thinking I'm going to use them. My plans have changed. I'm going to get patch panels for the bottoms of the doors and sell my Goodmark doors after I get my OE doors repaired.

I got my cab corner done and all of the rest is tacked except for the outer rocker. I hung the door to check fitment. I ran out of gas for the welder so it put a halt to more progress for now.

Glad to be back, I missed all of the progress and build stories here.

My shop is 30X30X12

The Goodmark door fit the hole really well. It would be cheaper for me to repair the doors that came off of the truck. That way I would have some extra cash for more goodies.

Re: My 1965 build thread

Ive got the passenger side pretty much buttoned up. I've moved on to the driver side. I've been doing body work for almost 12 years and OEM panels are so much easier. There's alot of head scratching, trying to figure out the best way to get these panels in. The driver side was stamped 1/2" off. You can see how I cut around the cab mount to get the floor lined up with the A post and inner rocker. The curve of the floor did not match the curve of the floor support. I had to cut relief cuts to get it to lay down.
