Cool! I predict that at least one person will come up and tell you that they thought that Yenko Chevrolet was in Pennsylvania.  Laughing 

I'm pretty sure I remember seeing McGraw Chevrolet stickers on cars, as I grew up in Dayton.
One of my friends actually has an '81 Yenko Turbo Z!

Old School Throw Back Side Trim

Post by Lakeroadster on August 22nd 2014, 9:10 pm

Yeah, my Dad bought a drop dead gorgeous factory fresh '65 red on black Impala SS from them.  Cool dealership that is no longer in existence.

Here's another conceptualization, with a "Bel Air" Super Sport" throw back style side moulding idea....  




The throw back moulding is really growing on me. I used some clear shipping tape to get an actual visual of how it would look. I think I am going to pull the trigger on this.








As always, your comments and thoughts are always aprpeciated!

Cab Mounted Splash Shields For Stepside Beds

Post by Lakeroadster on December 18th 2014, 2:23 pm

Looking at some internet photo's of stepside stock oem trucks I learned that stepside 60-66 trucks got factory bolted guards attached to the cab to prevent debris getting on the bed steps. My truck didn't have them, I am guessing it was a fleetside when it was new and was later converted to a step side.

Now that I'm educated on splash guards  Rolling Eyes  I made a set.  But instead of doing it "factory" I changing it up a bit to look a little less like an afterthought.

The factory look has two visible lines, the factory stamped cab reveal and the guard to cab line, like this:



My thought was if the guard came up the back of the cab to the reveal line that would look a bit better.  Here is a mock up I did:



And some in-process fabrication photo's:

And a comparison photo showing an OEM style guard:

Side Trim - It's Done - January 2015

Post by Lakeroadster on January 27th 2015, 10:56 pm

All I can say is wow. With these old trucks, nothing seems to be level with the world.  

I ended up using some surveyors string to establish a center line for the trim and then used the rear fender body line and the front fender lip as reference points.

The tape is merely there so I could draw the trim center lines on the truck.















Drilled the holes for the door and rear fender trim fasteners.  "R" Drill bit (0.339") for the wide trim on the doors and rear fenders, 1/4" dia. for the thin trim on the rear fenders.

To prep for the white paint between the rear fender trim 60 grit sandpaper was used.  Using the Faux Patina method, same routine as I used on the rest of the truck, I applied primer and paint.















Sanded the white trim for faux patina effect:


Hammer formed the end of the wide trim:


Installed Wide Trim:


Installed Lengthened Narrow Trim:



Installed Bowties (vinyl cut courtesy of my buddy Doug, a.k.a. GMCDAC)

Very nice!

What's the 'hole' on the front of the right front fender?

McGraw/Rowe Chevrolet, I think it was. That '65 SS sounds cool. You could get anything from a 283 up to the 409 in those - and I think you could get the 396 as well.

Have you seen the show on Discovery, "Street Outlaws?" Your truck now reminds me of the Farm Truck.

Thanks....  The black spot on the front right fender is just a spot where the paint is knocked off from bumping into my four post lift. Shocked  But it's got scars and dents all over it...

I believe the Chevy dealer in Troy Ohio was McGraw in the 60's, then McGraw/Rowe

Thanks guys.  thumbs up

The side trim has been the most divisive modification I have made to the truck.  Some folks said they hated it when I did the mock up photos.  Now that it's done those same folks say it looks good.

It sticks with the "Classic Old School Hot Rod Truck" theme.

March 05, 2015: Lakeroadster's Truck - Headed To New Zealand

Post by Lakeroadster on March 6th 2015, 8:39 am

Sold the Ole Orange Crate to a fella from Christchurch New Zealand.  Loaded it onto a semi this morning, headed for Long Beach California, then onto a ship for the long journey to the land of the Kiwi bird.

Have fun my friend, you are in for quite the adventure!



Saying your goodbye's to an old friend is never easy...



One for the road...


Not a very glamorous hauler... plane white wrapper.



One last look...

Kiwi's and Bowties

Post by Lakeroadster on August 31st 2015, 6:24 pm

I asked the new owner what his plans are... he says leave it as is.

Here's the new owner and the Ole Orange Crate....   Pretty cool to think my creation is now half way around the world being viewed by a new continent of Hot Rodders.
