hOW YOU DOING RAY? WHAT YEAR IS YOUR TRUCK? MINE IS A 55 1ST SERIES 5 WINDOW. MY FRAME IS ALL DONE I JUST HAVE NOT CHARGED THE BRAKE SYSTEM UP YET. I'M HOPING THAT BY HAVING THE RESERVOIR ON THE FIRE WALL IT WILL HELP A LITTLE. THE CPP REMOTE RESERVOIR KIT I BOUGHT ONLY CAME WITH 6' OF HOSE BY THE TIME I GET IT ON THE FIRE WALL NOT ENOUGH HOSE. I CALLED CPP TODAY AND THEY ARE SENDING ME ANOTHER 6' SO I'M MAKING THE MOUNTING BRACKET FOR RESERVOIR. I GOT A MOUNTING BOLT KIT FROM LMC BUT WANTED TO KNOCK THE MASTERCYLINDER OUT OF THE WAY SO I CAN INSTALL THE BOLTS TO MOUNT CAB.
WHAT MOTOR YOU GOING WITH IN YOUR TRUCK? I WILL MAKE MY DECISION ON MY MOTOR THIS WINTER. DEBATING ABOUT TO REDO THE 235 OR JUST PUT A CRATE MOTOR IN EITHER WAY ITS GONNA COST SOME BUCKS.
GOOD LUCK ON YOUR MOTOR MOUNTS.
I have the 2nd series 55 truck. I am installing a 305 with a 350 turbo. Something reliable to drive. Will add air. I have built my wife a 51 five window. 327 with 700r4. Camaro front clip with 4lin rear.
"Dreading it, is the worst part of the job."
Ray that sounds great! have you got a build in progress on them id love to see your pictures. It may give me some ideas. what color did you paint your cab?
you got to love them 5 windows even if they are not a 55-56 or 57. I cant wait to get mine done. I did some more sanding on misc. parts today. I'm about ready to bring the front fenders inners and outters in the shop so I can get those worked up and primed with epoxy. It will still be a while on mine so much work to do yet. I bet you already been through that with the 51.
