Re: TA_C10: Stage 1

Off subject. There is a new sporting goods store north of dallas called scheels. It's massive. 2 levels. It's like cabelas upstairs, bass pro downstairs, and dick's/REI all in between both....

Well they had some good deals there on other stuff but then i ended up where I always end up. The armory... This conceal caught my eye. Purdy. But a bit high in price I thought for this particular gun. I did find the same gun in their pre-owned but the wood grain grip was different. Bout $100 cheaper.

Anybody heard of this store?

Those MMPs are nice. Buddy has two of them and I like their weight and accuracy.

Re: TA_C10: Stage 1

Called around to several shops looking for someone to install my new windshield. Nobody did windshields pre-1978. Ended up being referred to a glass installer who has been doing it for over 30 years. I had the seals that accept chrome strips. Bought them 2 years ago... I didn't want the chrome. So me and the wife went back to summit last night and picked up 2 seals.

Soft Seal brand - 9914 and 9916 - no chrome

Guy will be back tonight to finish install. I should have glass BOOM!!!

And FYI, I went back and forth about trying to tackle this myself and since I have never done this before and didn't want to break the glass I decided to get an expert.

This guy had done over 100 of these installs he says. On the phone I asked about them leaking. His response, you still have those 2 holes in your dashboard? lol. But he says he will put some sealer under the rubber and do his best to keep it from leaking.

Re: TA_C10: Stage 1

We have a ton of Scheels in Iowa, they always have a huge selection of firearms, ammo and hunting supplies. I've bought several guns through them. I also have a soft spot for Sig handguns, have a 229r myself. Truck is coming along nicely by the way, good luck with the windshield!

Re: TA_C10: Stage 1

And just like that, glass is installed.

The old guy that I was referred to put the back glass in, maybe took 4 minutes. Front glass, took him 12 minutes. All by himself, no rope used on the windshield. He didn't want me on the outside pushing in on the glass either like you see in all the videos. He only used the small hook tool. Guy had done this before lol. Amazing. So happy I didn't attempt this myself now.

And he also shot the windshield uerethane sealer in the gasket to try and help keep it from leaking. Inside and outside. No sealer needed in rear glass he said.

Cost me $175 for both glass, and he came out yesterday, found out my rubbers were wrong, and stood there and cleaned the old tint and junk off the back window for me while I called summit to be sure I could get new rubber today. The guy was great.

Iíd say thatís a great price! Please PM me his number in case my connection falls through. Itís cool that he identified the wrong rubber ahead of time.

Howís the Summit experience been lately? Every time I have been there itís been a long wait... and that was pre pandemic. Did they bring the merch out to the car or could you just walk around in the store?

Will do, he's a glass man still but does classics on the side. Super friendly guy.

Summit is still long wait really. They have curbside but you can go in and walk around. That lightning they have in the showroom is sick.

Re: TA_C10: Stage 1

Could be me, but I feel like once the windshield goes back in you have reached a pretty significant milestone and it really feels more like a truck than a project. Makes me anxious for mine, but it is fun to watch you guys put yours together.

Thanks! And I just found out about a newer(new to me anyway) type of tint, it's not ceramic, but can be clear and all the way up to limo dark, and blocks like 80 or 90 % UV or something. I want to check this stuff out. This will really help down here in TX heat. And if this stuff is legit, I will do clear on the windshield, and probably do a very light tint on the rest of windows. I don't like it too dark anymore like I used to get when I was a young punk I think dark tint has it's place, if you look back on my thread at my 89 fox body it had super dark tint, couldn't see a dang thing at night, but it sure looked mean.

I am with you on this one step. When he put that glass in it went from zero to 100 in my head. Get ready for some updates cuz i'm gonna be in a hurry now.

My plan at this point is to finish the other inner fender(get it fitting off the truck), then get all the metal back on again and make sure it all fits, fix it if it doesn't. Then I want to pin the door hinges. I guess I am going to weld those thick spacers to my hinges so they aren't 2 pieces also. Then it's on like donkey kong. I will start with the doors, fenders, inner fenders, grill. Sand em all down, filler, primer, paint, hang em. Then I will move on to the bed, sand, filler, primer, paint, hang.

I have a few small things in between like my wire conduit between the doors and cab for wiring in doors. And also LED lights on bottom of doors. And I may also remove and redo my PDU setup a bit by removing the remote mount battery jump terminals in the engine bay. That setup keeps me up at night. Can't put protection on that 1/0 gauge wire because if you ever jump from another car it would pop the breaker/fuse. Other than that, I'm ready to rock.

Oh, I'm also looking really hard at heading to junk yard for a set of 06-11 honda civic door seals. Been reading this thread below and it almost has me convinced I need them.

Re: TA_C10: Stage 1

I have a set of Civic seals. PM your mailing address. You cover shipping and I will donate them to your project. They are clean ones that I pulled. I decided to go another route on mine.

I bought the precision push-ons. We will see how they fit.

Re: TA_C10: Stage 1

Radiator mounts modified and complete. Tomorrow I will get it plumbed and running again. This weekend I'm focusing on the fenders and doors, getting them fitting right.

Re: TA_C10: Stage 1

Radiator is plummed. Looks like my lower hose works great, upper works fine but not the best for the intake tube. I will hit the local auto parts store to see if I can locate something a little better. The intake tube does clear but I think I can do better with angles. My concern is I have a 67-68 front end and the hood isn't as tall in the front as the later models and I may have clearance issues. We shall see.

Re: TA_C10: Stage 1

The LH side sheet metal went together just fine after re-working the inner wheel tub and getting it fitted properly off the truck. I re-installed everything and gaps look like they are going to line up just fine. I will need some shim work here and there but for the most part it went together very well. Let's hope the passenger side goes this easy.

Agreed. The driver side gaps look good for no shims yet.

Re: TA_C10: Stage 1

Updates

Got my RH fenders fitting along with the door gaps. Had to make a cut at the bottom of front outer fender, on the back where is make the cup. That part sorta hugs/wraps around the core support and was too tight. I needed to be able to lift the fender up a little to get the gap right. That is the fender I cut and welded a new bottom end on and it wasn't perfect. Just made a slit with the cutoff wheel and welded it back together. That was all that was needed.







Door and fender gaps are ok. If I was building a show truck I would definitely be adding/shaving material to the doors, they are out of whack. Not too bad for this go around though. The cowl however is a different story. Going to need some shimming and who knows what else to fit right. The RH side fits just fine no issue. The LH side, not so much. I have to pull the cowl and keep plenty of tension on it while I push it down and into place to get it fitting right. And because I shimmed my doors out some I may need to add material to close in the gap. We shall see.













While I was at it I fixed my heater/ac controls. The unit was in bad shape to start with and a while back I posted how I cleaned it up and attached the vintage air controls to it. Well the back side is held together with rivets and those too were in bad shape. Somebody tried to take it apart and didn't do a very good job. I used a hammer and punch to do my best to salvage the rivets that were left but they eventually came undone again. So I drilled them out VERY slowly as to not drill too far through the face place on other side. Added new rivets and it's back in the truck again, nice and solid.







Then I pulled out my air filter, had to cut another section out of the intake tube, installed the filter and got it pretty much where I want it. I think it's going to work out just fine. Need to build a bracket off the radiator mount and then a block off plate around the filter in the fender. I am also thinking about making slits in the inner fender to allow fresh air up into the air box.















Now comes the fun part. And also the part where I screwed up real good. I installed the hood and grill finally. When I got the grill on I noticed the headlight buckets were WAY off, not centered in the holes properly. Anybody guess what I did? This truck is a 1970. Front dog house is from a 67-68. Oops, I ordered a 1970 core support. I guess this means the headlight buckets from those years are in a different spot.... I will have to do some surgery to make this work I guess....

The hood lined up pretty decent, little work there. The grill isn't too bad either. Will know better once I get the core support fixed. I went driving around like this. Flushed the engine first, connected all my radiator hoses. And the water is nice and clean and radiator is working well, and staying clean! Hovered around 190 just putting around the neighborhood. Got on it some and the it's got enough power it chirps the tires shifting into second gear. I think that upgraded 4l60e and brand new torque converter has something to do with that too

Re: TA_C10: Stage 1

Cowl looks great! Way better than mine.

Is your engine running around 190 without help from the fans?

Actually man the engine temp is mostly hanging out at 190 without fans(driving around in 96 degree heat, never left 2nd gear, probably 15-20 minutes long), but if it's sitting the fans have to cool it down. And I'm running our original setup too. 3 relay setup. working great.
