T-Man's 58 Apache project

Hey guys, i am goin to do a build thread for my Wife's brother, Tyler. He is 17 and graduating high school this year, he has wanted to do something but did not know what to do, His parents picked him up this truck a year ago and that is when we kinda started on it, this will probaly be a slow build thread so i will try to show you what is happening when i can. Plans are for a camaro clip, a l31 vortec, shortbed, shaved....... not too much, this is on a teenagers budget. we will do what we can. the color will be orange eventually. anyways on to pics....

Re: T-Man's 58 Apache project

Good to see another Canuck on here. Looks like a real good start. There is lots of good information available on this forum.

Looks like you got a bit of that white stuff.

Re: T-Man's 58 Apache project

Thanks guys, i appreciate it, i hope this build will not be a long haul, because i would really like to get it done for graduation for him, the only problem is it is 1.5 hours from me, so him and his dad get done what they can till i get out there. But it will be done, Thanks again....

Re: T-Man's 58 Apache project

Whats happening with the rear of the frame? Are you shortening it or putting the later model back half on?

We already shortened the frame down the appropriate length, the dilema we ran into was the leafs on the camarop diff were twisted and hung out too far, so that green truck being pulled away we robbed the hangers and shackles and leafs off of it, i then proceded to clean up the original camaro diff and welded new perches on it, it is a cheaters way of doin it, but budget is everything sometimes, we really wanted a 4-bar and bags, but you have to sacrifice someplaces sometimes to have the final product, thanks for noticeing, i will be mor detailed with the pics from now on, i was in a rush when putting them on.

Re: T-Man's 58 Apache project

Well i went to the farm this weekend, to help side the house, just decided that i would show you some pics of what Tyler has got done. He has been busy with school and then helping with the house, but he got most of the truck disassembled, then sprained his ankle. Well to some pics, not much for now but more to come....
