much better with the 62 emblem.
On the back of the cab did you add a 3rd brake light?

Yep, it's a a '94-'09 GM Suburban 3rd Brake Light. Fits like it was made for it, you can find details on post #50 of my build thread here: http://talk.classicparts.com/showthread.php?t=13928&page=4

I really struggled with the concept of adding the "new" third brake light to my "old school" truck. It is the only "new" era thing on the entire truck. But now adays everybody is so used to seeing the third brake light I just figured it was good insurance to keep my rear roll pan from looking like a negative imprint of a Prius. rabbit

I think it's a great idea. Most people become instantly stupid when they get behind a wheel of a car and the tail lights on our old rides are almost worthless so adding anything you can to get the attention of a 19 year old dumb @ss that is in the middle of texting his girl friend while driving is a good way of preventing him from plowing his Honda into your rear pan.

What are the two square areas under the back window?

That 3rd brakelight works well in terms of both function and form. Remember back around 1986, when those 3rd brake lights were mandated, and people would add them to older cars? There was always some b00b who managed to connect it wrong, and it would flash with the turn signals...

Cab vents. Wanting to get better fresh ventilation flow through in the cab I began by looking at newer truck cabs to see how they are made. I noticed that Dodge is putting (2) air vents in the rear wall of the cabs. They also help when closing the doors, as air escapes through them.

Sales Brochure Description:
A truck cab ventilation system and method which includes an air exhaust at the rear of the cab. An inlet vent in the front of the cab (kick panel vent) produces a positive pressure within the cab which causes flow-through ventilation air flow from the front to the rear of the cab when the truck is moving. . The exhaust vent includes flexible elastomeric louvers which are held by gravity in a closed position and are moved into an open position when air flows out through the exhaust system.

I purchased a couple of used vents off a 03-08 Dodge Ram Truck and then made a concept of the installation on cad.

Attached photos show the concept and the fabricated parts.

[





The openings were cut undersize such that flanges were formed. Then the vent panel surround is bolted to the cab.







[/II added seam sealer before priming to keep water out.

Yes it was. One of my first modifications was to remove the stock in cab tank and mount a '49-'52 Chevy passenger car gas tank the frame behind the rear axle.

I did a how to thread over at the Classic Parts Forum, lots of details can be found there: http://talk.classicparts.com/showthread.php?t=18178

Painted the back of the cab... pretty stoked to see some color and to get a visual on the orange and white with the factory two tone break line.

Halloween 2011

Post by Lakeroadster on October 30th 2011, 4:49 pm

Did the patina process of sanding, scotchbriting and chemical deglossing on the back of the cab today. Then re-assembled the cab vents and cb antenna. Reinstalled the bed and removed the front bumper. I needed it off for painting the front of the truck and I am going to fabricate a pipe bumper, a "gasser" style influence. Did a mock up using some drainage pipe. See last picture below for another truck with the look I am after










The Inspiration For The Pipe Front Bumper.....

Those Camaro SS moldings on the hood are cool.

I wonder how long it will be, before some fool asks you if it used to be a U-haul truck...

lol! If you build the vehicle for youreself then what others think doesn't mean much.

It's been my experience that people misunderstand stuff all the time. No big shake...

Case in Point..

I'm just saying, that there are certain repetitive questions which you get tired of hearing when you drive a hot rod, and I could see that as being one of them...

I here ya..... I also have a 1931 Ford Tudor and a 1927 Roadster Pickup, both are primered fenderless Hot Rods that I built myself.

Repetitive Question I Often Get: What color are you going to paint it?

Some people get the look, some don't. But that's fine.

For every silly comment we get there are ten others saying "Hey Mister, neat car" or giving us the thumbs up

It's all good.

Rear Fenders, Steps and Roll Pan

Sanded and de-glossed the rear fenders and roll pan. Mocked up the right rear fender to get a visual.

Bolted up both fenders and steps. Starting to look like a truck again. Next step is to wire up the license plate light, install the roll pan and the '64 Impala tail lights. Lovin' the contrast between the orange, chrome and black! cheers



I rolled the fender lips flat before I painted them. There appears to be plenty of tire clearance, but not so much that the rear looks narrow. I like the wheels to fill the fenders.

Thanks thumbs up

Due to the "Deep Freeze" weather I was able to get a few hours out in the shop. Installed license plate lights into the roll pan and then bolted up the roll pan. Also installed the '64 Impala tail lights.

01-01-2012: Painting Chevrolet On The Tailgate

Post by Lakeroadster on January 1st 2012, 2:31 pm

Happy New Year!

Painted the CHEVROLET script on the tailgate using a high density foam roller and some satin white Rustoleum paint.

To keep the paint just on the face of the stamped letters I painted the letters while the tailgate was down.

Came out pretty good, will look even better once I distress them a bit.
