Default My 37 Chev truck build (mini update #1)

Ok so I am one of those guys that has a build going and rarely posts partly due to being a bit intimidated by all the great builders on here and partly because I am terrible at actually taking pictures when I work on stuff. Anyways the thread an best build on the HAMB started making me feel guilty about never posting anything about my project so here it goes.

Here are some shots of the chassis. I have been doing this build a bit ass backwards as I have never done this before and keep leaning better ways to do things and getting slightly better fabrication skills so I keep changing stuff but I am trying to get the Chassis done right now.

Sorry for the pics being so big I tried to resize them but it looks like only the first one worked.

As I mention because I am doing this build in no particular order I have done a bunch of body mods and mocked the truck up so here are some pictures.









That's it for now but I will try and be more proactive at posting progress. Any comments are appreciated but try to not bust my balls too much.

I would love to see a better side profile shot as well. The driveway outside the garage is about a 30 degree slope and it is a bitch to push the truck in and out, well mostly in outs pretty easy, and for that reason I have never taken a good profile shot.

Sit's great. Love the grill. Look's like your massage of metal on the nose is coming along. The smooth 6 banger will be a joy on the road. What is the tail section?

Don't ever be intimidated, no matter how good or bad you are, there is always someone better or worse. The truck looks awsome kudos to you for using the six, the pictures are great,I'm jealous keep up the good work.

I think I get what youre going for out back and looks liek good work, but I just dont see it working with the truck - but just my opinion
it looks like your fabbing the bed comletely - bedsides, frame, etc, right? show some more shots of how that went , side shot, etc please - did you weld the bed frame directly to the chassis I cant tell from the shot? Im about to do a stake bed, so just getting ideas from others - I like the bedside rails from the tail shot

I see that you, as I do, prefer fuel under pressure to be confined by metal as opposed to plastic or rubber. There's a lot of nice work showing!

I have actually changed the back a bit. Still the same pan but different lights just one a side, 50 pontiac, and the exhaust will exit thorugh it as well. Yeah I fabbed the bed and am actually going to change the stake pockets so they have more flow to them. As I mentioned when I first started doing this my knowledge of metal working was pretty rudimentary and I did stiff the only way I knew which was usually straight pieces welded together. The bed frame is actually bolted to the bed and the box bolts to it.

As a 37 owner I am glad to see it still look like a truck and not a fenderless cobbled up mess,mine has a 57 235 and a 5 speed and looks basicly stock but lowered about 4 inches all the way around. Jeff

as I mentiuoned I don't have and direct side shots. Here is a picture of the front of the bed as you can see the stake pockets are pretty angular and I plan on cahnging them to something with a liitle more shpe to them. Nothing to radical just less boxy.
