sweet truck oregonite...
clean, i like clean

your avatar looks lite blue, looks good in white too.

right click on any of my pics and look at the properties.
i use photobucket.com for picture hosting.
it's free and allows me to use my pics in many forums
i can email or post a link; good for forums that don't allow picture attachments
or i can use the img format to post on sites like this

here is my photobucket.com album
mostly truck pics but a little of everything there.
i can also send direct from my dumb phone to photobucket thus the mobile upload folder

Oreg. Chevy truck.

Nice looking ride. Looks smooth. Did you keep the stock location for the master cylinder. And moved the battery. I think the location of the stock mastercylinder is a pain. But is easy to move? What is the front end out of? Or is it a kit thing? I would like to go theway of power steering too. Cranking the wheel at a stop is a real arm builder. Like toknow more about your build. And your radio is a good spot. I got the stock look but with a cd. Not by choice. The body guy installed it. But he forgot to install the mirror on the windshield. After busting and charging me for 3 windshields. Live and learn. I would have never found this great site or saw your awesome fleetside.

Oreg. Chevy

Hey, zoer88 again,
what steering colum did that come from that is the perfect set up. Is it tilt? Doesn't really matter looks really nice. The white really shows off the curves and sleek lines. Inside looks like a sleeper to be reconed with. I need of course a diffrent steering colum but I am not sure if I change that I don't know if a diffrent colum will fit in the steering box. Should have an adapter though? Got a question. I got a stock rear end can I just change the ring and pinion or is it
better just to swap the axle? Also does anyone know about swaping the drum brakes for disc brakes. It should pulling the drm and allthe componets and installing longer studs and rotor and caliper? Provided there is clearance? Just a thought. Imput is always appreciated!
Thanks.
Zoer88

Details

The front-end is a '81 Volare K- member. The tilt steering column is out of a '69 Firebird. I cut the key switch off of it and used the original ignition switch. I have a 3.73 geared '70 Camaro 10-bolt. Perfect width! The Mustang II master cylinder with an 8" booster is on the frame under my feet.

Hey guys,
I remember seeing this thread awhile back. I'll admit, I haven't covered all 150+ pages yet. Maybe when things get slow at work I'll get a chance.

To the good stuff.
I bought my 57 in 98. I got it from a guy outside of Spartenburg, SC. It had a non stock, leaky 283 and was an over all wreck. I drove it for a few months and took it all apart.

Fast forward to present day...














I like to lurk this board. I am not a pro. And I ask alot of amateur questions. I love old school hot rods. Some boards are really critical and some people into the hobby are elitists which I just dont understand. I like to have fun with my old truck. end of story.

I look forward to shooting the breeze with yall.

hey guys, still in the planning phases here, trying to get everything lined up for when i get home from this deployment, in another month, as some of you may know, i'm about to do final body and paint when i get back, im trying to decide if i want to do the under the bed fuel tank. I like the idea of getting the tank out from behind the seats and maybe relocating the battery there. My internet is slow as hell so i cant search much... what do you guys think about this kit


http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1955-...Q5fAccessories

it looks like almost everything i need ecxept the fuel lines and maybe a pump, correct? I think if i am going to do it i will definatly need to do it before i do paint and body so i can figure out how to delete the stock filler cap... any ideas/tips/hints on that?

Thanks again everyone for all your help, it is a real PITA having slow internet, lol

I went to get my truck inspected awhile back and the tech busted my balls over a bunch of little details. The kicker was the altered and lowered suspension. He told me he wouldnt inspect the truck because It has been modifed beyond stock. Maine has "street rod" plates, but they have a pre 49 cut off. The Custom tag was only 5 bucks more and I can do whatever I want at anytime to it.

I have yet to see another one either.

i bought a similar 21 gal tank from no limit engineering nolimit.net with in tank efi pump, gauge and side filler for $450 (in 2004)
i had some problems with the tank but i think they have fixed the problems now.
they had put the wrong type of fuel line inside the tank and it disintegrated after 3 mths
write them direct customerservice@nolimit.net
