That sure looks like a lot of work. Very nice color.
It only took 3 1/2 years......
Thanks for the detail and pics as I am about to tackle my bed. I am having trouble getting the side rail bolts out but patience will persevere.
Those have the tendency to make my tourette's act up......good luck.
I saved the entire thread to my computer!
Hey, for anyone who may not have internet access everywhere, as in when I go down to work on my truck, I Highlighted the entire thread and 'Save as' a document on my hard drive. Now I can look up anything I need without the need for internet access. I can print a couple of pages for detailed instructions, etc. I'd still buy a copy of the book when it comes out, though.
I even find myself referring to this thread to refresh my memory on what I did and how. I hope everyone else finds it just as useful.
Zig, just for you, I have a GMC ratrod coming to the shop tomorow.
Not only Zig is waiting for that one!!! You´re doing a great job, as seen so far, can´t wait, how this GMC turns out.
Thanks for taking the extra time, to post all those pics
I can't open the pictures? Any ideas?
They should be imbedded on the pages. Maybe your computer doesn't allow them?
Sign me up for a copy of that book...(Autographed of course!)
Update: He has been driving the snot out of it and has had no problems at all. That is what they are for isn't it?
Anhyone know why I can't see the pictures? Is it me, or does everyone have the same issue?
Durn Photobucket....I posted too many pictures this month. It is supposed to be back up tomorrow.
I just read this complete thread. Awesome stuff. Thanks for documenting it all to help us out!!
I am sure I will be coming back time and time again to reference something!!
Sure looks good I hope mine turns out that nice.I try and get some pic on once it's done.
Take your time, pay attention and don't try to short cut....it always gets you in the long run.
Thanks again for making this the most informative thread on the internet! Kudos, Bro!
I am having the same issue with my throttle linkage because of the boss being further back on the block. Any estimate as to how many inches you had to take out of the linkage? Thanks
I do not recall how much it was shortened. Position the carb linkage and bell crank, then make the pedal linkage fit.
