09-02-2014 02:19 PM Exhaust change up
Since I lowered the ride height I didn't think the side exhaust would clear the ground. Since I had so much 3" pipe lying around I used it. The mufflers on the side pipes were 3" straight pipes with baffles in side. I needed an omega shaped pipe to go over the rear end. I took my old u pipe I made for my side pipes and welded a 90* elbow to each end. After I cut the elbows to match the u bend I used my old technique of hose clamping some pieces of old band saw blades to align the u and the elbow ends together.

08-17-2014 03:43 PM Grill shell and radiator and hood.
I picked up the unit with my engine hoist and installed it in the truck. I then carefully picked up my hood with my engine hoist. Note all the tape I used to protect the paint and chrome.

08-17-2014 03:03 PM Grill shell and radiator
I finally got my grill shell back from the chrome. I assembled it as a unit to install it in my truck. I blacked out the cross pieces in the grill is the were a pain to polish. I lowered the radiator/evaporator/ fan assembly in to the grill to install as a unit.

I got a tailgate from Mar-K for a 39 as they had Chevrolet in scrip. I also got the stainless steel Tailgate Link Assembly.

08-17-2014 02:57 PM Bed floor
A few years ago (about 20) I had a wild cherry tree cut down in my back yard. I had it milled into boards and they been lying around every since. I planed some down and machined them into bed floor boards so that I could use the stainless hidden fastener strips. I test fitted them before I finished them. After finished the boards with a brush I found a lot of brush marks in the finish. After sanding them down with 120, 220,and 320 I found that I still have some divots from the planer so I applied another brush coat to fill in the divots. The problem is that I have to wait several days before I can sand. After sanding with 220 and 320 I applied a coat with a HVLP sprayer and thinned it with 10% mineral sprits.
