Re: Not another build thread! Progress on my '67

I'm not sure which mounts you're referring to?

If you mean the seat mounts, no, they are the stock seat mounts off a 93 silverado that came with the 93 bench seat, I just set them back farther so I didn't have to modify them for the "hump" in the floor that runs from door to door.

If you mean the cab mounts, no again, the frame mounts are stock and the actual cab mounts were a kit I got from GMC Pauls.

I think you were referring to one of the two?

Re: Not another build thread! Progress on my '67

I was referring the the cab mounts... meaning the bracket part... they look new in the pic... I need to replace mine on a different model truck so I was wondering if you had made them or bought them. If I could buy mounts it would certainly be easier then making them.

Re: Not another build thread! Progress on my '67

BACK TO WORK! I started another long friday off packing up the dogs and driving to Cola to work on the ole girl again. I made good use of my CCP hidden hinges for the 67. The instructions were a little vague but they did tell you what size drill bits you need. Of course, I don't have a big honkin 1/2 drive drill.... so I had fun wallering out the big holes with a 3/8" bit You have to drill out the side of the tailgate first (keeping the top of the hole against the back edge of the tailgate (the inside edge). You then have to guestimate where to drill the hole for the mounting screw, and you could then figure out where to drill the two holes for the slider and cut out the section between the two. The final step is to shut the gate, snap the latches, punch a hole and drill (or waller) out a 1/2 hole in the bedside for the rubber grommet.

I also sanded the bed back down a bit and put some "real" primer on it.

Re: Not another build thread! Progress on my '67

I will admit that I half, well you know what, the inside of the bed...big time. I plan on sanding the wood down a bit and staining it and the inner bedsides will be coated with a bedliner stuff. Just a driver, no show truck here

Re: Not another build thread! Progress on my '67

Bill didn't like the fact that my truck was only a day-ly driver so I cleaned up the headlight buckets, rings, and lights, and reinstalled them. I also hit the core support with some flat black to make it stand out better behind the grill (yes, I got so excited I was finally painting it last month that I forgot to tape the backside of the grill off)

Looks like I got to bust out some bling too! Just as a side note.... REPOP FENDERS DO NOT HAVE THE HOLES DRILLED OUT FOR THE HEADLIGHT TRIM RINGS. It's scary drilling fresh paint

Re: Not another build thread! Progress on my '67

Here's a few more shots of what's been done so far. Next time (probably a few weeks from now) I'll have the rear fenders, steps and tailgate in paint. I should also have all of the "bling" on the front end, including my super ultra cool (what a dork, huh?) fog light (excuse me, driving lights) front bumper. Whooo flippity hooooo. I might acutally be able to drive this sum beech in a couple months!

That's looking great! You've gotten a lot farther than I have on mine in the near year I've had it. I told myself when I started the new job in January that I would make progress since I wouldn't be driving and I still drive it too much.

Man, this board sure is motivation to do stuff though!

Re: Not another build thread! Progress on my '67

The color is a 1999 (and I'm sure it applied to many other years as well, I just so happened to see it under 1999 in the paint book) GM medium blue metallic. It looks dark in some of the pics, but in person the color is actually pretty light and somewhat close to the original interior color of the truck (the truck was originally blue interior with white exterior). I love progress too!

I actually didn't think it was hard at all. The only difficult part is how and where your going to get fuel IN the tank.

Re: Not another build thread! Progress on my '67

I worked real hard this weekend on the truck.... I somehow managed to paint my repop bowtie the same color as the truck and put some clear on it. Well, at least as close as Wal-Mart's med. blue metallic spray can paint is

I also painted the two grill pieces white, haven't cleared them yet, and I started to clean up all of the brackets and taillights for the bed.

Re: Not another build thread! Progress on my '67

I just read this thread from start to finish (took about 1/2 hour for all the pics to load w/stupid dialup connection) and just want to say you should be proud of the job you've done on your truck! It looks great.
