How do you find the time ... ?

thanks again for these picutures. for you to help me out this quick is very appriciated. I think that these will help me get under way. I plan to paint primer on this next week. I have to weld ups some rust corners and cowls. the interior is going to a gun medal gray.
Did you use your original steering colum? I would like to make that work, keeps the look! I'm also going to use the S-10 brake pedal, emergency pedal, and wiring harness (minus some wires) I also plan on using a AT shifter from the floor. if the wife likes the truck I may even put a 5 speed in it later??
This is her truck in the begining, and my daughter has also seen the promise. I plan to buy a '67 camaro this next spring for me!!!
My dad has a 1949 coupe for sale. I will send you some pictures later to show your buddies if anyone is interested. it is all rebuild drive train with the original look inside. He wants a corvette, late 50 to mid 60.

Go to the last page of my other build thread. I just modified a Dodge column to work with a toyota steering sector/rack and pinion steering. I did the column in the 48 chevy in a similar fashing except I did not weld splines to the end. I did it to hook up to a 79 camaro sector.

If you are going to run running boards, the body could be raised several inches without being visible.

Nice ride, in reading it I'm guessing since you used the s-10 brake pedal assembley are you using the booster and master cyl also? If so can I ask what year as I am just starting my 54 project and the PO has converted the front straight axle to disc with drum on the rear. Any other hints would be greatly appreciated. For now I'm keeping the six and 3spd manual.
Thanks

My donor truck was a 1991 extended cab with a 4.3 and automatic trans.

Oh yeah, the truck ran an 8.50 i the eighth. That supposedly equates to a 13.25 in the quarter. Not bad considering this is the detuned set-up (smaller cam and 600 carb). I'm curious what it would have run it it's previous state.

Flipper I love the look of trucks like yours! Though mine's a Ford, I appreciate all the old stuff. Are those what they call "california" or "Texas" mirrors?
Thanks and continued success,
James

No idea what the term for these mirrors is. They create aweful blind spots in everyday driving. ...but they work with the farm truck vibe....
