I have several threads out there but not an official build thread so I figured today I would create one that I can constantly update instead of tons of small threads. It started when I saw this truck and decided I wanted a 1959 ford f100 I searched high and low on the Internet and after 4 or 5 months of looking for one with the color and "patina" I wanted I found my truck on a farm in Dinuba Cali(outside Fresno) and shipped it back to Los Angeles. Here is me in Dinuba after purchasing. The car stayed stock for maybe 24 hours Stock interior First thing I did was rip out seats and have upholstery redone and carpet added. I chose black carpet so it doesn't show dirt and chose off white bench seat to match the front bumper. I also did the visors and door panels off white as well. Threw in a cd player after learning it was not original stereo anyway. And had to do grenade shift knob Second thing I did was flip leafs over axle in rear WITHOUT NOTCH and 3inch SIDS drop axle upfront. Worst ride of my life in the rear. Also painted rims black and added 3.5 inch wide white walls Blue dot tail light of course I then decided I'm done with the shitty ride. I decided to airbag the vehicle. I took it to SIK fabrications in Carona. For all that don't know I'm in a LAW SUIT OVER THE FRONT SET UP. That's a whole different thread. Anyway, I went disc brakes and power steering. The rear is parallel 4 linked with pan hard bar and massive step notch. 2 viar compressors and 2 5 gallon tanks. I am going with a TCI mustang 2 front end( to replace the crap I have now )in the near future. After bagging it I decided I needed to cover the massive step notch in the bed so I could carry my motor bikes. I decided to go with dark wood planks. I stained them and Polly urethaned the planks. Then welded bracketing and installed the planks with bolts through the metal supports. Also had to move wheel tubs up to lay truck. next was on to cleaning up my nasty engine. I bought new air filter, new fuel lines and filer, and engine paint. I have a chrome oil filter cover just haven't installed yet. Next I decided my truck Rattled to Much and was too loud. I decided Dynomat would be great until I saw the price. I decided to try this stuff I saw at lowes called PEEL AND SEAL. Less than $100 I did my entire cab with 2 layers and inside the doors with 2 layers. Huge difference in temp and sound. Probably best idea I have had. No smell and same shit as Dynomat. I did a thread on here about it.
