Re: lets see your trick mods and custom touches!!

Did the sidemarker fuel door. Took some southern engineering, but it works! and built a little box that bolts inside the bed to cover it up. Now... we'll see just how tight it is when i try and fill 'er up!

Re: lets see your trick mods and custom touches!!

Aftermarket tach and mid 80s clock in the dash.
Transmission temperature gauge and aux. fuel tank gauge. The middle button is for my back up lights - which overrides the surge brakes on my trailer.
Just to the left of my knee-knocker tranny and aux fuel gauges is my aftermarket cruise control. I don't have a good picture of that on this computer.
Oh that non-AC temperature control was swapped out a couple of years ago. I have all the firewall mods done for AC. All I need to do is cut a few holes in my dash, hook up a compressor, suck the air out, and charge the system.

4wd, tach, built-in clock, tranny temp, cruise control, AC. What is that in today's new market with a standard cab and 8-foot box? $20k? $25k? I'm sure liking my payments of $0 month and 0% interest.

Re: lets see your trick mods and custom touches!!

Here is my interior with a converted van tilt, Autometer Phantom Gauges, seats from a 98 or 99 Silverado and door panels that I made to match the seats.









Also have a custom gas tank built by fuelcellguy on the flatbed. Filled in the stock gas filler hole on the cab.

Re: lets see your trick mods and custom touches!!

Since I didn't want to distract from the restored look of my interior, I had a custom panel built to mount my air ride controls. The sitches are monuted in this cool stalk that fits flush against seat. The digital gauge is hidden in the ashtray...

You can buy a gas cap that doesn't have to be removed. It has a hole to put the fuel nozzle in and it's spring loaded so gas won't leak out.

May not work for your cali pumps?

Here's a pic and I got it from this thread:

Re: lets see your trick mods and custom touches!!

YukonJack - GREAT interior. Door panels are some of the best I have seen when not using stock style upholstry.

No pictures but my 2 "custom" mods are 68 Olds park lights (they match the 67/68 grill hoops with anodized aluminum bezels and clear lens and the 2nd mod is the 65 Chev heater control which looks just like the AC unit without the blower switch.

I saw these on a 07' Buick Lacerne, and ordered some from GM, and after MUCH MUCH deliberation decided they should be installed. One of a kind for sure. Plans are to indeed make them useable, after all I have already cut the fenders to get them on. Those are my winter white spokes, the bling wheels are in their jammies.

Re: lets see your trick mods and custom touches!!

So far N2TRUX takes the cake with that trick setup! Nothing in my yard is that far off the chain. I tucked my stereo in the glovebox of both trucks and added a Camaro tach to the dash as well. Pretty typical fare I guess.

Re: lets see your trick mods and custom touches!!

All I have done is make a mount for speakers to fit under my bench, as I don't want to cut up my doors or kickpanels. It's decent but nothing worth showing off. Some really nice ideas here though.
