truck bed

I'm gonna use a sheet of plate steel and not diamond plate. I already have a frame built to lay it on, so I'll only have to do the perimeter. I won't be doing wheel tubs like the two of you have. I can adjust my wheel offset where my tires will fit in the fender. The S10 bed floor is a cool idea. Thanks

I am trying to remember what tilt steering column you used for your truck. If I remember, it was from a G-body (Monte, Malibu, Cutlass?) I can't find the picture that you had that showed it from under the dash. My 1978 Truck column is too long. For some reason I thought I could use it. Thanks!

Ed, It is from a 78 lesabre. It fits well but does have the bump out on the side for the tilt and turn signal. I am still looking for one that does not have the bump out. Also when I installed it I had to remove part of the dash support to get it up under the dash. Hope this helps.

Kurt

Ed, here are the radiator pics from Back to the Fifties. As you can see the aluminum radiator has the number on it. The other one was on a custom and it is really well done.

Hey everyone, I am a new Rodder and have a ton of questions but my biggest is that I just purchased a 1958 GMC step side but it has a D 150 chassis and powertrain. It seems to ride good and have great posture but is this going to be a major issue moving forward? Also how difficult would it be to go back to a GM Chassis and power train? Thanks in advance.
