My rusty/ratty 48 chevy truck build (w/ pics)
 
I'm in the middle of doing one of those S-10/Advance Design Chevrolet creations.

Here is the way the truck sits now. Wheels are 20" Centerlines.

Here are my crazy assed headers. Building these things was a royal pain in the ***! :)

The brake booster complicated things.

The rear tube couldn't go up and over due to the column and the booster..........so it goes DOWN and makes a full loop before joining up with the other tubes!

I am not 100% on running the seats out of the jaguar xjs donor.

We recycled the original column and wheel. Not 100% sure what is going to happen with the dash either. S-10 pedal assy has been cleaned up, trans tunnel started, floors started

I'm proud of my column drop. Pedal assembly welds will get finished when it comes time to paint. From the driver seat, you cant see the bracket that holds the pedal.

Dad's dog checkin' stuff out.

What's the damn HAMB sticker doing on there?.................. :D :D

Looks good........not fussy on the wheels, but to each their own. Why did you do the headers like that?...To make them equal length?

partially for equal length reasons and partially for ****s-n-giggles

good start
 
Are you going to have running boards and steel bed. A friend of mine has a 51 and he raised the floor of the bed to make it work. Bud

What? You guys have a problem with the HAMB Alliance?

Don't even get me started on Ryan and some of his close "buddies". Nothing against any particular HAMB members but let's just say there are some who don't care for the games Ryan has played in the past and we aren't about to let bygones be bygones. If you really want to know.... ask him why the Rodders Roundtable (not to be confused with the Rodding Roundtable) isn't around anymore.

busterwivell 01-09-2007 05:50 PM

So then it is OK to be a HAMBer and on here, too?

See the smiley faces....That means it was a joke.................I am a HAMB member too, although, I won't pay to be one.

busterwivell 01-09-2007 06:20 PM

Sorry, I did indeed miss them. I didn't want to get into any controversy here, I'm new. I look closer for smiley's from now on.....or not take things so seriously, LOL

All HAMBers are welcome at HotRodders.

Just keep in mind that this place is allot more "establishment" oriented so stuff (language) that's OK on the HAMB won't fly here.

busterwivell 01-09-2007 06:50 PM

Centerline, got it.......will comply

Flipper, sorry to hijack...........love what you're doin' with that truck! Keep us posted on your progress.

I do like the truck project - and those headers. Dumb question, is the chassis an S-10?

Oh, my AD hood will stand like that.
