    I always liked the GMC fronts better. Although that part of the truck needs just as much help as the rest..

    Personally I am a 55 or 56 Truck guy, I like grille and hood better than 57. I am trying to avoid any new projects but a 1/2 ton short bed stepside would be hard to pass. Was kind of hoping you were going to save this one.

    Time for a wagon update, all of our mounting holes in the bumpers are filled, and the three pieces assembled into one..















    We picked up the wagon from upholstery, still needs door panels done so we need to finish stainless trim for them.. Boy that sunlight is like turning on a light switch!!











    How our brackets will work....







    video explanation of our next modification...

    With brackets clamped in place the "weld locations" are found by starting with centerline of the bumper, adjusting to actual offset of the car, and locating the spacing needed.







    Jared and I add some tweaks to fine tune ear placement and test our tig welds at the same time..







    In the meantime, Mike is doing some cleanup of the door stainless, bumping up dings, filing, and taking to a Trizact 5000 finish. Then we'll get the studs welded on and final polish..

    Thanks for the comments guys!


    3M Trizact is an "abrasive" used on a DA for taking care of defects prior to buffing out your paint.. Works on Stainless trim too.. I think they have up to 6000 grit or so..
