That orange an white looks killer together

Thanks. Will have a Orange suede headliner and Orange carpet made for it at that time.
Restoring a sled takes time...restoring a car/truck is a whole 'nother animal. Stay with it...
If you're angry, frustrated or crazy and feel you have to kill someone...start with yourself!

    Yep. Once it became evident that it needed to come down to the bare frame, I knew it would take a few extra years. I'm planning every inch of it, pre-assembling basically every part at least once, and wondering why I bought some of the stuff I bought. New core support is for 65, 6-cylinder only. No problem finding one, but big problem finding a aluminum radiator. Being recommended that I dump the new one I have, buy one for a 66 and then radiators are available. Well what about the Vintage Air that I purchased for a 65 with the 6-cylinder?  ;D Keep smiling eh.  :-\


    very nice chris


    Hey thanks again. I haven't decided yet on a steering wheel so can't decide how to do the instrument pane. Once I get the column mounted (after I figure out what I'll use for a lower column mount) I will figure out how much dish I need in a wheel and move forward. I appreciate the offer on the veneer. I came across this photo the other day and wanted to show it to you.

    I always liked that color combination on the 69 Z-28, just needs some hounds tooth!
    Pay no attention to the man behind the green curtain!

    Hugger Orange is the color I'm using.  :)

    I stuck with the original gauge plate on my 64 F100. Added Autometer gauges and trim rings. I really like the result.

    Very nice.  8)

    Electric speedo? If so, what are you driving it with? I'm thinking I'll be getting a GPS sender but don't know anyone who can give any feedback on it.

    I stuck with old school manual cable drive. Thought about a sender but didn't like the cost. Sorry I can't help with any feedback.

    Thanks. When I had a 4sp it came with a mechanical drive for the electric speedo, but when I got my 5sp trans, it's set up to drive the speedo off the drive shaft so I have no choice but to change the speedo, or go with GPS (I think).
