Re: Another one underway! Meet project Savannah

I'm still around, just trying to get my kitchen project wrapped up. I'll be hitting this one hard very soon.

Big static drop, 4 wheel disc, nasty 6.0 / 4L80, new paint, finish up the fleet bed, wood kit, etc. It will make a very nice truck. Stay tuned, more coming as soon as I can.

Yeah, 2004 6.0 / 4L80, harness, ecm, etc. But I had to drive to Richmond to get it. 42k mile setup. I'll be doing a cam / top end upgrade, 243s, tbss intake. Headers, etc. Just a nasty but still steerable 6.0. Should be fun.

Re: Another one underway! Meet project Savannah

It's getting serious at the Coley shop!

Chad has sparks flying and C-Notches are going in. We will be adding BellTech 5" springs, shocks, Adjustable Track Bar, Shock Relocaters, Rear Disc Brakes with drilled and slotted rotors. When we get the rear suspension all buttoned up we are dropping in the Boyd Welding EFI gas tank.

Did I say that we hate rivets?

Re: Another one underway! Meet project Savannah

A little progress today... we finished installing the rear disc brakes and got the shocks and springs bolted up. We are still waiting on the track bar and degree shims. We will be bending up some brake lines and adding some differential oil to the rear end.

The two 20" x 10" US Mags will go on tomorrow, then we can move to the front of the truck. Exciting stuff!

Re: Another one underway! Meet project Savannah

We bolted the US Mags on the rear after converting to five lug Moser Axles and rear disc brakes.The tires are 295/45r/20 and really will stuff up under the wheel wells.
Next on our list, Boyd Welding EFI gas tank,

Very nice project guys! That is an amazingly solid truck. I'm in to watch as well. Great work on it so far!

20x9.5. 5.25 BS on the early housing. 295/40.
Rear disc conversion is the Eldorado setup from Little Shop MFG, I just upgraded it to drilled and vented rotors.
Rear sway bar, track bar, and pinion shims are on the way. I'm ready to tear into the front. I'm going to rebuild the control arm bushings, tie rod ends, all new ball joints, etc. The fronts will be 20x8, 255/45. Well post up some pictures once we dig into it. It's just rolling around on the 6 lug setup for now. Those wheels and tires will be for sale very soon if you know someone who might be able to use them. I think they're 16x8. Mickey Thompson wheels. They'd be good for a daily driver. The tires are Toyo Proxes, like new. I will trade for LS or C10 parts too. Just lemme know..

Thank you sir. Yes, it's an original 67 swb, bought new in Vidalia GA and stayed there its whole life. It's an original rocker and cab corner truck. Very nice, I have the original title and sales receipt for it. It has been painted a while back and they gave us a big photo album before / during / after the restoration. It's just a base truck. 6cyl, 3ott, very few options. Med blue originally. Step side.

I am going to paint it Marina Blue, fleet wood floor bed, African Mahogany bed wood, stainless strips, full Mar-K Custom / CST trim. 4.5/6.5 static, 6.0 / 4L80, high hump, were considering a white houndstooth interior. Etc etc.. Not sure yet. Wheels may change. I have been known to do that.. lol.. Should be a nice truck when were done with it.
