I don't hate it, but I wouldn't do the rear fenders - unless that's how GM did it back then. Just my opinion...

No trim on General Motors step side fenders from the factory on 60-66's... and that's kind of the point of me adding the trim. Why would GM put trim on the doghouse and not on the bed, just looks half a $ $ e d IMHO What a Face

Did a road trip in the ole orange crate today now that its pretty much road worthy :rolleyes:. First time its been out on the open road for about 5 years. Time flies when your having fun.

We took our GPS to confirm the speedometer is accurate, which it was to my surprise. I would have figured the huge rear tires would have thrown it off a bit. All in all a good first outing.

Gearing and tires produce 2000 RPM at 50 MPH in 4th gear. Which is pretty much what I had figured.

I was thinking of doing that to my truck but in the reverse.  Applying the primer over the paint and sanding to achieve a similar look.  Thoughts?

If you mean roller application of primer over an existing smooth paint, and then sanding, I don't think that will work. 

The faux patina system works because the primer is applied first with a heavy nap roller to give it a bunch of texture, then the color goes on after the primer.  When you sand it, you sand through the colored high spots, exposing the primer, while the color in the low spot also remains.

Rough coat first, then smooth coat.

I saw this truck on another site and wanted to throw the photos up here.  The matte finish clear just doesn't look correct, IMO.  And when the clear starts to separate from the paint from being sunburnt it will look even more "non-patina".

Some Updates On The Ole Orange Crate

Post by Lakeroadster on March 25th 2014, 8:54 am

Rear Spring Re-Deux

I used 5" drop springs on my truck.  The ride was like a big ole Buick and the springs were so light weight that hauling anything of significant weight in my truck wasn't possible.

I replaced the rear springs with 4" drop Heavy Duty Springs.  Much better ride and I like the added rake, looks a little more like a work truck, IMO.  Keep in mind it's only an inch different in rear height.  But since they are heavy duty I can now haul more than just a couple hundred pounds of stuff :DThe new springs look very similar to the OEM springs that were originally on the truck, just a couple less coils and shorter overall height.


4" Heavy Duty Drop Springs are on the left, CPP P/N 603-4HD, 5" Drop Springs are on the right, CPP P/N 603-5

Before.....    

After....    

Custom dash mat.

There's a local place close to us that makes custom dash mats.  The gal there said if I made them a template they could make a mat for my '65 that has the '67 Camaro dash in it.









Easy install, Velcro across the front, gravity does the rest.

I thought I noticed the Camaro dash - but then thought "well maybe GM just used that dash in trucks..." That does look cool.

Bed Step No Slip Paint May 2014

That's the look I was after, as if it came that way from the factory.  thumbs up 

I painted the ribs on the bed steps today with Rustoleum Undercoating.  I used this on the step bumper on my daily driver and it works very well.







Also drug my early 70's Sears / Roper Mini Bike out of the rafters.   Restoring it is on my short list of upcoming projects.

May 2014: Painting "Chevrolet" On The Grill

Post by Lakeroadster on May 31st 2014, 3:25 pm

I know there are vinyl letters available, but I prefer paint, so here's how I made my own masking template to paint the CHEVROLET letters on the grill of the ole Orange Crate.

Using blue painters tape, the CAD letters I created and clear shipping tape I cut out each individual letter







I then cut out the letters using an X-Acto knife





I attached each template onto each letter



Then it was a simple matter to mask around the templates and spray paint the letters





Ain't she pretty :o

It does indeed have front end damage... I'll be fixing that.

Nope, no trees.   Ramp jumping... I blame this guy:

McGraw's Chevrolet Service Truck

Post by Lakeroadster on August 19th 2014, 7:40 pm

Here's a concept sketch of lettering for my truck. McGraw's Chevrolet was the local Chevy dealer where my dad bought his '67 Impala SS.  the lettering would be "distressed", looks too crisp below.
