nice work it looks good ,
Thanks Guys, appreciate the comments, thats incentive to keep on going!
There is no modification to the Camaro rear bumper. The only mod is to the stock econo brackets. They have to be cut and a plate welded on to them so the camaro bumper will bolt right on using the stock brackets on the bumper.
Looks like I'll be searching for a Camaro bumper, if you don't mind me stealing your idea.
haha I am sure I am not the first one to use this bumper. Did you ever find a glove box door?
very cool, any updates ?????????
We want updates kev!! lol.
fine.. I'll just have to make the trek over to your end of the city. busy all this weekend, but next looks promising. still drink only 2C in your Tim's ?
Hey man, I am always home, pop by with the 2c Horton.
Progress has been slow, seems something always gets in the way of working in the shop. Got the rest of the mud work done, I was so happy to finish this side up I popped a wheely !! Also decided to go with a power brake set up, here is a couple pics. Will get more when it warms up and I can get it outside.
Nice truck! Motor sounds good too. Looking forward to the YouTube video burnout.
Looking just great. shouldn't be long now.
These econo's have a real cumbersome and fugly heater assembly so I picked up a Magic Air unit from member Tedley off his 50 ford parts car and mocked it up. I think I like it.
Your doing a killer job! Love that tailgate!
Thanks, its a fun project to do.
I thought this was a place for hot rods!!!
coopsdaddy are you for real?
coopsdaddy, I thought it was a place for like kinds to gather, fabrication, modification etc etc? I think if my econo didnt belong here the powers to be would have let me know. Seems like many enjoy, sorry you dont. You best hurry back, I think your beers are getting warm.
Man I love your Econo those thing are so cool. Looks killer.
What type of tailgate did you start with? On the hinges, did you have to french them into the bed? Any detail pix while putting it together esp on the hinges?
So what was the outcome? Let see it!
Great write up---great build. I'm re-building a E-pup just like yours and really in interested in that tail gate. Most of these things have the tail gate disease, with few options. Anything else you could share would be appreciated. That's one sweet truck!!!!
