Mech Oil Press $62
Volt was about $46
Fuel (90ohm) $49
Temp was about $46
All prices are approx. All my reciets are in storage. All Gauges come with Bulbs and bulb harness, red and green bulb covers and mounting hardware. Blue LED bulbs were $2 each. Need 8 of them. 2 each for 5" speedo and tach, 1 for the 2 5/8 gauges. Make shure you get right sensor for the transmission. There's 3 different ones I think. Hope that helps. I bought all this stuff over a 2 month period.

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Short Beds

SBTork it is orange rhino liner. So it does look kinda flat. The previous owner had that done to the truck but I think I am going to change it to regular flat orange with some pinstriping. Check out my build thread. "OrangeAnimal" For more.

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Short Beds

My plan is first and foremost to get it lowered. Way too tall!!!! I'm trying to decide now which wheel size to go with 18's or 20's, and what way to lower it. I was thinking 2" front and rear, but I may go lower and use 18's Then other than that a 350 engine and little things here and there.

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Short Beds

That's a nice color combo. I always liked the two tones in these style of trucks.

Great thing about these trucks is that we all get to make 'em our own. Maybe completely stock re-do. maybe orange Rhino-Liner.

That said, here's what I'd do to that fine truck: a few little chrome bolts and washers to fill the spaces left by the headlight housings, switch out the mirrors to black sports, call it done. Nice, nice truck.

If it was subtle enough, I might go for a small amount of pinstripe over that orange. Maybe one shade darker than the color that's on her now.

I don't really know what I'm gonna do with this '83 (it's also a '74 and a '63)...But a de-chroming has already started. First, I put in the Blazer leather rear seats. Next, I installed 40 Flowmasters and the ceramic coated Headman headers. Today, I did "electrical plumbing" for the Holley FI....Working backwards, as usual!!!!

I agree 100%, and everyone likes to see all the different ideas that each other has. I've been on some boards that really cater to a certain style or idea. This board is so open and embraces new ideas, and old styles alike!
