That's not at all what I've heard the reason is. My wife and I did a walking tour through New Orleans several years back and our guide said the blue porch ceilings keep nesting insects out of that area. They won't build nests there since it looks like sky and they would not be protected from predators from above. The spirit thing sounds like a story based on Voodoo. Although there's a lot of that in New Orleans too...

Re: 1967 Custom Sport Shop Truck

I'd always heard it was for spirits.

From wiki:

Haint blue is a pale shade of blue that is traditionally used to paint porch ceilings in the Southern United States. The tradition originated with the Gullah in Georgia and South Carolina, but has also been adopted by White Southerners.

The ceiling of the slave quarters at the Owens-Thomas House in Savannah, Georgia, built in the early nineteenth century, was painted haint blue.[1] The pigment was sourced from crushed indigo plants.[2] Indigo was a common source for haint blue prior to the American Revolution, when indigo was a common crop for plantations in the American South, but the tradition survived well after the decline in indigo cultivation.[3]

Originally, haint blue was thought by the Gullah to ward haints, or ghosts, away from the home. The tactic was intended either to mimic the appearance of the sky, tricking the ghost into passing through, or to mimic the appearance of water, which ghosts traditionally could not cross. The Gullah would paint not only the porch, but also doors, window frames, and shutters.[6] As Gullah culture mingled with White Southern culture, the custom became more widely practiced.[7] The use of haint blue has lost some of its superstitious significance, but modern proponents also cite the color as a spider and wasp-deterrent.[8] However, the color has not actually been scientifically shown to stave off bugs.[9] The associated repellent effect may stem from the use of milk paint containing lye, which does act as an insect repellent.

Whatever the reason, I like it. Come to think of it, I don't think I've seen any bird poo on my porch railings this year....

Re: 1967 Custom Sport Shop Truck

That's pretty cool. Someone needs to track down my tour guide and tell her she's wrong! Or maybe only partially correct.

Great job on the logos, by the way!

Re: 1967 Custom Sport Shop Truck

Your truck has come a long way over the years! I like how you did the lower trim. I always wanted to see if there was a way I could bend some pieces to put on my stepside dually flares. I'd want to join them on the pieces on the fleetside part of the bed.

I tried bending them and it just wasn't happening. They're too thick with too many "strong bends and points" along the face. I was able to "tweak" the straight ones to put a slight bow in them to match the rear of the step fenders, but in terms of bending... no way, which is why I was ecstatic when I found out using the cab corner pieces was going to work so well!

My current plan is 26/28 by 48/50. Yes, I'm going to squeeze it out as large as I can. It will depend on how close I can get to my current garage (looking at +/-10' right now) which would leave +/-10' on my neighbors side with a 28' garage

For the size I'm building, I can't afford to pay someone to build it. I have 23K saved up and I'll be lucky if it covers the trees, foundation/grading (have to cut into a 3' hill on one side) and *maybe* the wall framing/electric.

I plan to have the grading/concrete work farmed out along with the electrical to the garage. I can handle the inside part. I will also be building the walls, buying pre-made truss, probably hiring a crane to help install them, then doing the roof myself. I'll also handle the windows, man doors, and siding. I will have the 10' doors installed. I think I might install the sheetrock, but pay to have it mud/sanded. Just thinking outloud. Getting pretty excited about it. Even doing it as I'm listing will probably set me back 40/45K. It's gotten expensive to do a traditional stick garage.

And yes, I know a metal garage will cost half and be done in a week, but I had to promise the wife it would be a stick build to match the house, and I will be ordering truss to utilize the center area as a bonus storage area.

I'll be happy if I can park a car in an enclosed shell by the end of summer. So with that said... aside from rebuilding the carb and keeping it rolling, the C10 is done for at least another year or so. I put the bed and all my good parts in dry storage.

My layout idea You can see why the trees need to go. I don't have much other options, I have a 50' easement on either side of the wires you see in pic below. The easement is almost only 10/15' off the back corner of the house.
Just looking through some of my old threads and thought I'd update this one. "A home for my C10" is actually happening. It ended up being 28'x52' with a 10'x52' storage area above the main garage. After my initial post I started getting estimates and actually pricing stuff out. 40/45K would have been a good guess for a 28x30 shop. I'm now going to be closer to 55/60K. Where I'm at now per the first pic below with all roofing materials, sheeting, exterior siding, soffit, and shutters purchased is just over 40K. That leaves electric, doors, insulation, and interior finishing. At least another 20K with doors and electric being the largest expenses remaining.









C-10 for scale:
