Photoshop is the Pirate way 😁Totally random thought, could you spray a couple wheels with PVA, then spray paint one black and one white to see the results? That would save save you from a full sandblast and powder coat job that may not be what you like in the end?
*Disclaimer* I've never tried this with paint, but, polyvinyl alcohol works pretty dang good with epoxy resins for composite molds as a release agent. It also cleans up with plain old tap water.
Disagree on the color, you could drop that seat in any of these old trucks and it would look awesome. Love it!!I made the decision to pull the seat out of the C10 since it was already reupholstered, wasn't running & driving and the K20 was... so I bolted that seat into the '69. It's the wrong color, but really cleaned up the look and feel of the interior.
You were supposed to work on the El Camino and clean up the mess in my garage while you were there picking them up.Picked up a set of 40 Series Fowmasters, which I've LOVED the sound of since '93.... @anderson750 used these on his El Camino build and they were good enough for this truck, lightly used! The old exhaust was completely rusted out, the glasspacks where gone and it was loud and sounded terrible. I used a universal 2.5" exhaust kit from Speedway Motors for the pipes, welded up some new mount and routed the exhaust up and over the rear axle. The exhaust just dumps after the rear axle, good enough for this truck! The 40 Series Flowmasters sound awesome, very happy with the sound!
The rear driveshaft needed a couple new u-joints, so I pressed the sloppy, worn out ones out and new 1350 joints in... it wasn't hard work, but really helped with how the truck drives.
Also replaced the front wheel cylinders, attempting to get a decent brake pedal feel. It's better, but not safe enough to hit the main roads yet... I really don't want to spend too much on the drum brakes and factory axles, as the 1 tons are coming soon! It's good enough to drive around the neighborhood though!
