There are blisters in my work too in some spots, which I believe to be related to not having properly filtered and dried air since none of it appeared until it was in the heat of sun.
The bondo on said hole was applied with a front loader by the looks of it, so a patch panel was pretty much a must. The original owner sold it in about 2017 I believe. No rust in the box. I also had to preform some surgery on the front clip which had some rust on the bottom passenger side under the battery very typical spot for rust. Stereo is an old cassette deck which just may work! During the break-in of the new engine the headers were glowing.
The stock steering wheel was replaced with a custom aftermarket wheel. I now have 10 new outlets on a new 50amp circuit and new breaker box, an insulated workplace and some good organization. No ticks, knocks or blowby. I ended up painting the hood, fenders, tailgate and clip myself and repainting the cab. Since I had the cooling system out too, I took the chance to install my Jetstream 2 fans. I left the upper 6 inches or so unglued so I can easily access wires and whatnot. It's usable though but windshields are pretty cheap for these I believe.
By original looking, I mean it has the iron intake, manifolds, stock air cleaner, etc. The paint is original and has lots of wear as you can see. Buyer handles all shipping costs. The truck features many custom features and is an absolute show stopper. This is equipped with a 454 500+ horse power engine. The passenger side floorpan has rust just barely starting in the same spot.
I have more pics I can send also. Then I remember that I want to stay married. The pickup may have been ordered with the stepside. I opted for the later because it seemed like a lot more fun. So anyways, that is where we stand Jan of 2014. A few hours in the shop yielded a functional replacement. Wood in the box floor is in ok shape.
When they spin up, you instinctively stand back. Tailgate Tailgate repair came out pretty flawless. The truck is nearly rust free but has two small spots. There are a few spots, but nothing major. I was surprised by how easy it was, and how well it turned out.
The primary mount for the shoulder belts were built into a kind of offset bracket. I also set up a electrolysis vat using an old garbage can and stripped the rust off the headers. If you do the math, that is eight belt ends. We dropped the new engine and transmission on the rails and put on the fenders and whatnot. I had it charged and it blew cold.
I believe the rear bumper and running boards were maybe dealer installed or custom built. Rust pit holes are starting to come through there. The only other rust spot is the low rear corner of the passenger side front fender. It came out really nice! Vintage Air Remarkably, this works! Sitting under the hood of this classic Chevrolet is a powerful number matching 350 cubic inch V-8 engine that is mated to a turbo 350 automatic transmission. The cab and doors had been painted too. The body is really very nice for an unrestored squarebody. I thought it would be easy to track one down, but I thought wrong.
So I sprang for a pricey Lokar shifter. I replaced the cable with a screen door cross-support the kind with a turnbuckle and it was an absolutely perfect fit. I was disappointed, but I do not believe he did it maliciously, I think he just got stuck between a rock and a hard place. I also masked and painting the lower dash and glove box, though I had to do it with rattle bomb because my compressor is giving up the ghost. The carpet was next and the several years it spent in storage had taken their toll. Most I've seen before are 2wd's. Then it is carpet and sound deadener time! Drove 43 miles on a friday afternoon in traffic to find a dealer with a product as advertised, in better condition than many others i saw and worked with me on price.
The redesign was revolutionary in appearance at the time, particularly the cab, departing from typical American pickup truck designs of the era. I needed to run the power and speaker feeds for the new amp before doing the carpet and sound deadening, so I went ahead and tackled the amp box. It has the 350 V8 engine. Originally, I just wanted to paint the block. This past weekend I got several items knocked off the list. Instead, I ended up starting with a different block, going 60 over total cap should be around 361 , roller rockers, high performance cam and a bunch of performance hard bits.
