Re: Free Candy Inside: 63 Long Panel Build

Not as much progress as I would like (as in it should be done by now. Lol). I was fighting myself and overthinking things and would start the floors one way and change my mind and whatnot. That happened for several days. Now the truck is outside the weather has also been fighting me. Here's a few pics anyways.

Re: Free Candy Inside: 63 Long Panel Build

Here's how much will be under the doors. I didn't want the weight of the vehicle to be on the doors. I want to be able to open to doors while fully laid out.

Re: Free Candy Inside: 63 Long Panel Build

Well sorry for the lack of updates. Progress has been very slow with many headaches. Currently I am trying to get a brake pedal in the thing. I had to cut off the actual pedal as it was hitting the floor not allowing me to press it down.

Finally got the truck running and tried moving it around. So the throttle stuck and the brakes didn't hold up and it went through a fence. Luckily the body wasn't bolted down so it just slid on the frame not causing much damage. Just a dent in the rear door. No biggie.

Moved the truck back to my house to get ready to put it away for the winter. Going to keep working on it over the winter.

I have no idea why these keep posting sideways. Set a grill on it just to see.

Re: Free Candy Inside: 63 Long Panel Build

Note I have 1x1 bars welded to the bottom of the frame to keep everything at the same height while doing body structural supports. I will cut them off later so it will lay all the way down. I also need to cut off part of the rocker which is keeping me from laying door. All the frame work is done to go that low

Re: Free Candy Inside: 63 Long Panel Build

What width of wheels is everyone running? I think I'm forced to buy the porterbuilt arms to get the wheels in an inch. These are 8" and I can't clear the hood (that's why the hood isn't all the way down)

Switched to a 205 front tire which helped with some of my clearance issues. Think it's time for some porterbuilt control arms. Also messed with switching grills and hoods. Loving the gmc apache hood.

Yup. It's weird how they made them slightly different. I am looking for a chevy apache hood so I will have them all. Lol
