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

Drove up to Mccall for my birthday. Still lots of snow and the lake is partially frozen. The picture quality isn't that great, I forgot to turn the flash off on my phone but they look like photos from the early 90s so kinda cool.

Thanks Z71.. Actually the sun going down when the pics were taken is doing the paint a big favor. It's original paint so time has done its thing. It does have some patina on the hood and top which I like. Anyway, I appreciate the compliment.

Love it! I really like the wheels and how they contrast with the blue!

I need something like them for my blue 87!

Got it home, and a week later it’s lowered and did some paint restoration (at least my best version of it). Still gotta figure out what to do about wheels &, maybe, tires.

Give this stuff a try. One good coat per day, ket it lay overnight indoors. It will kick in the afterburner & glow.

Give up the spring/spindle/rear lowing details. As well as the tire size. Thank-you, it has a perfect rake.

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

Thanks guys, 3” spindle and 3” djm drop spring in front, rear is just a flip kit with no c-notch, then belltech nitro shocks all around. Started with 2” springs in front but I need some rake so I went to 3”. Tires are 255/60 front and 275/60 rear.

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

Here's my 82 that I painted in 2011. It's been outside ever since and I have to say the NAPA paint has not faded one bit. Same with the Upol Raptor bed liner. I stopped plowing with it last year.

New’ish wheels... (truth be told, I bought them in 2009 and still had them on a shelf in the shop)
