Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by shocker998md, May 15, 2011.

  1. Shit man if I make it up to maine next year my truck will have seen the entire east coast in two years, with 6 months or so of that time being over here. I think when I left last month I did some math and I think I put 18k on it in a year.

    Next time im headed up north ill give you a shout.

    Thanks for the little update, I was wondering how the truck was doing.
     
  5. So you're home? Two things, glad you're back OK, and thanks for covering our asses over there.

  7. well im working on taking all the trim off this weekend. I will be doing the quick scuff and shoot and spray it in flat black. Ill be taking pictures and hopefully by sunday it will be sprayed.

    Now im not going for the flat black rat rod look, I got the paint for free and I want the truck in one color. Im also going to polish all the trim up and then clear coat the trim so it should look pretty good.

    Truck looks great. Keep plugging away and keep us updated. I have a '66 F-100 long bed I hope to finally have on the road next week.
     
  9. stand by for paint pictures, well hopefully. Ive got it all masked up right now, about to eat breakfest and then roll it out of the garage and shoot it.

    Im also sitting on a rebel wire 9+3 after I get it in one color!

    Phone and computer are acting up so Ill post more later. One lesson learned, dont spot prime a truck like this, blow a coat or two of primer down. I sprayed four coats of the black and it soaked it up like a sponge. Next weekend ill have to hit it with another coat or two.

    Nice truck! I have a 65 SWB f100 that i drive everyday also, Is that the stock seat that you had recovered? My stock seat is very uncomfortable after only 30 minutes or so my back starts hurting. I would like to find a better bench seat that still has a original 60's look.

    Looking good! Did you ever get that 390 you talked about?
     

  19. Yes I took the seat out and got it re foamed, broken springs fixed, and re covered. It turned out great.
     

  20. Yes I got a 390:cool: Its almost all done. .30 over 390, big crower cam, worked up heads with CJ valves. I need to put the heads on and measure for pushrods and then buy them. Then out of my few sets of rocker stands rebuild a pair and then its ready to fire off.

    Nice truck I'm building a 62 unibody. Just bought a 390 also,but that's another project. Planning on finishing the body and driving it with the 223 for a while. How big of a job is it to take the knobs out of the dash?
