Mock up of my air intake

Start of the bed project (a project within itself) –  6/17/11

 

"Heerrrreeees Scotty"

 


Put the bed on to see how the tires fit and how much clearance I have – Looks good.
The bed should lower about another inch or so 
once the wood, tailgate, and rear bumper are installed


The "real" maiden voyage. From work to home. No problems. Drives straight, stops straight. Runs great!

Home again, home again….

Pics of my cold air induction. Not positive if I am going to run this.
I do have the duct that would go through the rad support. We'll see about this


Another look at the cold air intake


Started the vent assy. Actually got them back together except the glass
Was going to install all the glass this weekend, but once I installed the door glass, I found out that the glass was cut about
14" too short, so the window would not roll up all the way (the channel bottomed out on the door before the window actually rolled up). I compared the original with the new glass and sure enough, too short!


6/24/11 -Got all my modings back. Been at the polisher for about 3 weeks.
Did a great job. He thought the "indent" on the front of the door molding was an actual dent, so he removed them (bummer). Probably see if he can put them back in so they are more original.

Installed the polished alum moldings.
These are the factory moldings that came on this truck!


The Custom cab trim molding. I will be painting everyother line in the satin black. Will also paint the lettering black.

    Will you please tell me what

    Will you please tell me what colors you used for the green? Does it have a specific name? And love the truck!

      Jose,
      That is a special mix

      Jose,
      That is a special mix I made up. It's pretty close to the Kia Soul Tea Green, but I made it a little more vivid and rich looking

    Hi Scotty,
    I can’t believe

    Hi Scotty,
    I can’t believe all you have done on the TRUCK. It really looks so nice. I just showed Chip (my boss), and he loved it.
    I love you.

    The truck looks great
    Scott, I am currently re-building a 1963 C-10 my selft, and really love what you have done with the ’66. I do have a couple of questions about parts. First off, what rims did you go with, the Foose or the Boss 338’s because i really like the Boss rims also, just wanted to know what fit the truck the best, what headers did you use for your 383 Stroker, because I have built a 550hp Stroker motor for mine, and lastly where did you get the radiator for you truck, the aluminum one you installed looks really good.

      Boss 338 wheels

      Michael, Thanks…If you plan on going with the Foose Legends, they don't make them in black anymore. I went with the Boss wheels.
      I used hedman headers. I used a Champion radiator and polished it.

        What did you do about the back spacing issues you talked about for that set of wheels, and i really loved what you did with the front bumper, what kind of bracket did you use to mount it to the frame.
